Army Futures Command leads a continuous transformation of Army modernization in order to provide future warfighters with the concepts, capabilities and organizational structures they need to dominate a future battlefield.
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.
Strategic We must create and deliver focused, prioritized concepts, organizational designs and capabilities to achieve Defense Planning Guidance objectives and meet Army Senior Leader guidance to address mid and long-term challenges.
Effective We must deliver what warfighters need, when they need it, in a timely and affordable manner.
Innovative We must create and cultivate a culture that front-loads smart risks through iteration and prototyping.
Agile We must be willing to fail early and responsibly and learn from our failures and successes. We must be creative and not become victim to a "that is not how we do it here" mentality.
Unified We must become "one team" with a laser focus on creating speed through shared goals and understanding, disciplined initiative, enabled decision making at the lowest possible level, and delivering valued outcomes for the Army.
Long Range Precision Fires Cross-Functional Team
The Long Range Precision Fires Cross-Functional Team provides modernization of the surface-to-surface capabilities by employing sophisticated offensive fires systems. Strategic deep fires will provide Army and joint-force commanders with a surface-to-surface capability that can penetrate peer-adversary defensive capabilities, significantly increasing the range and lethality of current and future fires systems.
Next Generation Combat Vehicles Cross-Functional Team
The Next Generation of Combat Vehicles (NGCV CFT) mission narrows or closes Cross Domain Maneuver capability gaps by developing Army requirements for our Next Generation of Combat Vehicles while synchronizing and overseeing all supporting materiel development activities, experiments and assessments. Future Vertical Lift Cross-Functional Team Future Vertical Lift (FVL) CFT is an Army led multi-service initiative focused on enhancing the next generation aviation assets that will restore vertical lift dominance to our nation's fleet. The next generation aviation assets will provide increased range, protection, lethality, agility and mission flexibility with the ability to operate in high altitudes and hot environments.
Air and Missile Defense Cross-Functional Team
The Air and Missile Defense (AMD) Cross Functional Team (CFT) will include the ability to defeat missile threats against the U.S., our deployed forces and our allies and partners. Air and Missile Defense is one of the Army's top modernization priorities and is critical to winning in a fight against a near-peer adversary.
Soldier Lethality Cross-Functional Team
The Soldier Lethality Cross Functional Team (SL CFT) mission is to enhance the Soldier/Squads ability to fight, win, and survive through increased Lethality, Mobility, Protection, and Situational Awareness in order to facilitate rapid acquisition of increased capabilities. Synthetic Training Environment Cross-Functional Team The Synthetic Training Environment Cross-Functional Team (STE-CFT), Pilot mission is to rapidly expand our Synthetic Training Environment and deeper distribution of simulations capabilities down to battalion and companies, with simulation capability to model combat in megacities.
Network Command, Control, Communication and Intelligence Cross-Functional Team
The Network Command, Control, Communication, and Intelligence Cross-Functional Team (referred to as the Network CFT or N-CFT) is aligned and nested with the Army's new network modernization strategy. The N-CFT is a pilot organization stood up to address the most pressing challenges to the tactical network that our soldiers use on the battlefield. It is focusing efforts on two of four lines-of effort: Unified Network Transport and Joint/Coalition Interoperability.
Assured Positioning, Navigation and Timing Cross-Functional Team
The Assured Positioning, Navigation and Timing Cross-Functional Team is a cross-cutting capability that enables Army readiness and Warfighter dominance in a rapidly changing and contested combat environment. The mission of the Assured Positioning, Navigation and Timing Cross Functional Team is to ensure Army readiness through PNT overmatch in all operational environments.
