The U.S. Army is preparing a drill intended to help the branch develop new warfighting technologies and cooperate with other military organizations, Defense News reported Monday.
Joe Gould writes that Brig. Gen. John Charlton, head of the Brigade Modernization Command, said the service aims to turn concepts into actual innovation through the Army Warfighter Assessment exercise.
Charlton added the branch identified 20 challenge areas under its “Win in a Complex World” operating plan to help shape the AWA program, according to Defense News.
The Army also plans to ask contractors to propose technological capabilities that can be integrated into the new war game.
“We will have to work with industry to develop some funding solutions to get your capabilities out there,” Charlton told an audience at a forum hosted by the Association of the United States Army.
“It gives industry the opportunity to interface with soldiers so there is some incentive there.”
Gould reports the branch also seeks to involve the U.S. Marine Corps, Air Force, Navy and the U.K. military in AWA.
