Army Futures Command

Leading the transformational modernization of the U.S. Army.

About AFC

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. AFC is headquartered in Austin, Texas, with over 26,000 personnel worldwide working on modernization priorities. We integrate daily with entrepreneurs, scientists, academia, and businesses to employ an entrepreneurial spirit of accepting risks in order to create the best solution for our soldiers, and to keep America strong. Our soldiers, our people, and our team are the center of our efforts to make the discoveries required to design and field the future force. AFC is soldier centered in its approach, relying on a diverse talent pool ranging from Privates to PhDs. We drive the Army to become a persistently modernizing institution that establishes, maintains, and exploits overmatch to deter and, when necessary, defeat current and future adversaries.
