The Chief of Staff of the Army called for Multi-Domain Transformation in CSA Paper #1 and outlined the Army's role in competition in CSA Paper #2 to address the unprecedented set of challenges to U.S. national interests posed by peer and near-peer competitors, transborder threats, and other strategic issues. The Army must be able to operate in a multi-domain environment, synchronizing and leveraging air, land, maritime, space, cyber, and information capabilities and strategies. Likewise, All-Domain Operations require new operational concepts, technologies, weapons, and units to address future challenges.
The Army War College focuses study and ideas at the nexus of the operational and strategic levels of war, applying its expertise in relevant research and analysis of the priorities of the Army and Joint Force.
"This symposium links education and application -- an example of the Army War College's focus on educating strategic leaders for 2035 and beyond," said Dr. Greg Cantwell. "We are assembling a group of senior speakers and designing workshops and panels to take a deep look at the future role of Strategic Landpower."
