Eric Wesley: Army to Change Organizational Structure Over Five Years

Lt. Gen. Eric Wesley, director of the U.S. Army’s Futures and Concepts Center, said at a recent Center for a New American Security event that organizational changes will begin within five years, Defense News reported Thursday.

Wesley noted that the Army will modify its organizational structure to cover multidomain operations, or missions involving provocative adversary behavior and advanced capabilities. He said the service must also implement changes in line with the goal to deploy modernized equipment to its units.

The branch launched its multidomain operations doctrine in 2018 and recently released an updated version called MDO 1.5. The Army Futures Command was also established to address six crucial modernization priorities and integrate the operations of the other major commands.
