The U.S. Army has developed a concept to align its forces globally as part of efforts to bolster defense capabilities and address reduced deployments, Defense News reported Sunday.
Paul McLeary writes the Army intends for that approach to coordinate brigade combat troops and combatants command worldwide for one year in order to establish training, advising and security models.
The Army also wants to demonstrate the Air-Sea Battle program of the U.S. Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps to the Congress, according to the report.
That program aims to help the Army gain access to the global cyberspace, the report adds.
The Regionally Aligned Forces concept stems from the research of the strategic studies group established in 2012 and led by David Johnson, a retired Army colonel and former researcher at RAND Corp., Defense News reports.
