Data, Data, Data. Just like all of today’s mega-operations the U.S. Army faces the same mega-problem: the successful creation and utilization of an incredible array of data to improve force effectiveness. The summer edition of Army AL&T Magazine features how the U. S. Department of Army is successfully addressing and implementing programs to maximize value for the tax-payers money.

It opens with an article titled: “DATA, from the Foxhole to the Pentagon”, thus sending a clear message that the management of data across the military community is a key mission and critical objective.

  • MODERNIZING THE NETWORK, a discussion of challenges and must-haves as the Army moves toward its more centralizing vision.
  • THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME, showcasing three events critical in developing the concept of operations for terrain-shaping obstacles,
  • ASK THE RIGHT QUESTIONS, points out that the Army to successfully develop artificial intelligence, it needs to collect the right data before investing.
