What is it?
The U.S. Army Modernization Strategy addresses the challenges of the future operational environment and directly supports the 2018 National Defense Strategy’s (NDS) line of effort, “Build a More Lethal Force.” This strategy outlines the ends, ways, and means for modernizing the U.S. Army to win future wars, and is underpinned by advanced training and doctrine.
This strategy balances modernization, readiness, force structure, and end strength with available resources to accelerate modernization. This is essential to achieve overmatch and sharpen the Army’s competitive advantage to deter, compete and win against any adversary. This strategy leverages smart and bold institutional reform to unify the modernization enterprise under one command. It also promotes a culture of innovation, discipline and accountability.
