ABSTRACT

Army's Modernization Strategy: Congressional Oversight Considerations [February 7, 2020]   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Document: "In October 2019, the Army published a new modernization strategy aimed at transforming the Army in order to conduct Multi-Domain Operations (MDO) which are intended to address the current and future actions of near-peer competitors Russia and China. The Army's Modernization Strategy is part of a hierarchy of strategies designed, among other things, to inform the Service's respective modernization plans. These strategies include the National Security Strategy (NSS), the National Defense Strategy (NDS), the National Military Strategy (NMS), and the Army Strategy. The Army's Modernization Strategy establishes six material modernization priorities: [1] Long Range Precision Fires; [2] Next Generation of Combat Vehicles; [3] Future Vertical Lift; [4] Army Network; [5] Air and Missile Defense; [6] Soldier Lethality. [...] This report provides a number of possible questions and observations related to a potential Army modernization oversight architecture which could serve to provide both an element of continuity for hearings and a standard by which Congress might evaluate the efficacy of Army Modernization."
