Lt. Gen. Robert Ashley: Army Kicks Off Force Review to Identify Mission Needs

Lt. Gen. Robert Ashley, the U.S. Army‘s deputy chief of staff of G-2, has said a review of the entire Army force is underway to explore the service branch’s current capacity and mission requirements, Defense News reported Wednesday.

Jen Judson writes the Army’s Training and Doctrine Command and Intelligence Center of Excellence will run the “bottom-up” review through late summer.

“It’s really targeted on what are the missions that are emerging now that we have not really accounted for and where are we going to be in 2025,” Ashley said at an Association of the U.S. Army breakfast event Wednesday.

He added the review team has collected more than 3,800 responses from a survey of Army capacity and needs and the group currently interviews Army leaders at various commands.

The team will present findings to Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley and host an industry day on June 29 to discuss its findings, Judson reported.

Ashley said the assessment will cover the areas of open-source intelligence, interrogation, certification process for analysts, counterintelligence, collection management, aerial intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance; and the integration of cyber, electronic warfare and signals intelligence.
