FORT LEAVENWORTH, Kan. — The U.S. Army Combined Arms Center, or CAC, will host an augmented reality demonstration of the Army’s newest operational concept during Association of the United States Army’s Annual Meeting and Exposition in Washington D.C., Oct. 10-12, 2022.
“How We Fight (An MDO Augmented Reality Experience)” will be located in booth #4309 during the event.
The Army will publish Field Manual 3-0, Operations on Oct. 11, 2022. The FM establishes multidomain operations (MDO) as the Army’s operational concept with a focus on large-scale combat operations (LSCO) against peer adversaries who possess the capability to contest the joint force in all domains.
MDO is the fourth significant Army operational concept adopted in the last 40 years. The update of FM 3-0 sets the standard for how the Army fights and addresses the challenges the nation faces between now and 2030. By using a state-of-the-art augmented reality demonstration, audiences will be able to visualize key concepts outlined in the manual: specifically, domains and dimensions, strategic context, and convergence.
The use of augmented reality and specific multidomain operations visualizations to communicate complex military doctrine at the scale of an AUSA exhibit is a first-of-its-kind use-case. The Combined Arms Center-Training Innovation Facility used augmented reality best practices to design the FM 3-0 visualization and showcase key concepts of multidomain operations.
The incoming CAC Commander, Lt. Gen. Milford Beagle, Jr., is scheduled to host a media-only presentation at 10 a.m. Oct. 11 at booth #4309. However, the booth is accessible throughout the event.
Space is limited in the booth during the demonstration, media wishing to attend should RSVP to Tisha Entwistle at Tisha.email@example.com. Tisha can also be contacted for additional information about Combined Arms Center-Training or the augmented reality learning experience.
