Army Eyes Reduced Logistics Tail in Multi-Domain Battle

The U.S. Army is developing a strategy to reduce the logistics tails of the service branch’s  units in multi-domain combat operations, Defense News reported Monday.

The Demand Reduction strategy is meant to address the Army’s mission to operate in smaller, more dispersed units while providing required water, fuel, power and equipment to warfighters, according to the report.

Col. Stephanie Gradford, chief of the Army Capabilities Integration Center’s sustainment division, told reporters the service branch aims to increase its capacity to maintain freedom of movement during operations, especially in austere environments.

The report said ARCIC plans to help the Army achieve reduced logistics through commercial and military technologies such as additive manufacturing, three-dimensional printing, alternate fuels, advanced power generation, autonomy, artificial intelligence and laser weapons.

Gradford noted the Army expects to finalize its Demand Reduction strategy by the end of 2017.
