BENS hosts a Virtual Discussion with General John M. Murray, Commanding General, Army Futures Command (AFC). General Murray will provide an overview of Army Futures Command’s mission and the Army’s Modernization Strategy. Based on the efforts and progress of U.S. adversaries in modernizing their militaries and increasing their ability to threaten U.S. interests, the Army determined it needed to take a new approach to modernization and created U.S. Army Futures Command, or AFC. The creation of AFC is the largest institutional change the Army has taken in over 40 years. In just over two years AFC has already delivered significant results across all of its core mission areas and is poised through its key initiatives to enable the Army to deliver a multi-domain operation ready force to the Joint Force by 2035.

General Murray will discuss AFC’s core mission areas: assessment of the future operating environment and design of future warfighting concepts, development of requirements, development of future force design, and the acceleration of the delivery of capabilities Soldiers and the Joint Force. General Murray will also discuss the critical elements of the future warfare – speed, range, convergence, decision dominance and overmatch.
