The rapid development of the new round of scientific and technological revolution is promoting the evolution of the form of war from informatization to intellectualization. The US military, which has always been at the forefront of the world military power since World War II, is actively designing future wars to cope with the current “great power competition”. The Army Futures Command’s establishment in 2018 was born under this background. Army Futures Command, which is part of the US Army, is responsible for the development of new army weapons and equipment, innovation of future combat concepts, and testing and application of emerging military technologies. Since its establishment two years ago, Army Futures Command has constructed a complete and rigorous organizational structure, created a series of theoretical achievements including the C5ISR operational concept, and made considerable progress in new combat equipment such as space-based missiles and long-range precision fire systems. Based on a large amount of frontier literature research, this paper clarifies the organizational structure of Army Futures Command, summarizes its main functions, forecasts the development prospect of the new command, and explores some useful inspirations to promote the modernization and future-oriented construction of our armed forces.
