The U.S. Army selected Austin as its new Futures Command headquarters.    This will have a substantial impact on our community and market.   Join us to learn more about why Austin was selected and what this military initiative will mean. 

Army Futures Command, which began operations on July 1, will lead the Army's future force modernization enterprise. The command is expected to assess the future operational environment, emerging threats, and new technologies in order to develop and deliver concepts, requirements, future force designs, and modern materiel solutions to meet our Soldiers' wartime needs.

The Army has worked hard increasing current readiness and strengthening its combat formations. Futures Command will provide that same focus to future readiness by fine tuning and implementing the service's modernization strategy to increase the Army's lethality against near-peer competitors in tomorrow's conflicts.

 

Futures Command will lead the Army's force modernization efforts; it is charged with providing Soldiers the weapons and equipment they need, when they need them. This new four-star command will complement the Army's other four-star headquarters -- Forces Command, Training and Doctrine Command and Army Materiel Command -- and is scheduled to reach full operational capability in summer 2019.
