This monograph is a "think piece" about rapidly deployable future ground forces that would be used in time-urgent joint-task-force missions. The authors sketch out what is needed operationally, describe forces responsive to those needs, and discuss the feasibility of achieving such forces-first with near-term systems but new operational concepts, and then, for the longer term, by drawing upon advanced technology.
