Updates on the Army's modernization strategy

Additional Information

The Army's modernization strategy has one focus: make Soldiers and units more lethal to win our Nation's wars, then come home safely.

The modernization process will leverage commercial innovation, cutting-edge science and technology, prototyping and warfighter feedback. Unity of command and unity of effort for the Army's modernization effort ensures accountability, transparency and responsible stewardship of our Nation's resources.

The establishment of Army Futures Command marks one of the most significant Army reorganization efforts since 1973, when the U.S. Army disestablished the Continental Army Command and Combat Development Command, and redistributed their functions between two new commands, U.S. Army Forces Command and U.S. Army Training & Doctrine Command.
