The Army Objective Force 2030
The Army Objective Force 2030 (AOF 2030) is a core element of the modernisation process, providing an endorsed view of the future Australian Army to support force and capability development efforts. It provides an aiming mark to allow the comparative analysis of the Army Funded Force against the future land force to identify and quantify the capability gap.
The AOF 2030 provides the capability bricks (people, equipment and technology) that will enable the Army to win in future joint land combat. The handbook is guided by government direction and an assessment of the likely future operating environment.
Army Modernisation Handbook 2011
The Army Modernisation Handbook 2011 updates the Army Continuous Modernisation Process Handbook released in December 2008. The intent of the Army Modernisation Handbook is to clearly describe how Army modernises and to show how Army's modernisation activities are integrated into and synchronised with the wider Australian Defence Orgnaisation modernisation and capability development processes.
Adaptive Campaigning - Future Land Operating Concept
The purpose of Adaptive Campaigning - Future Land Operating Concept is to provide the conceptual and philosophical framework and force modernisation guidance to the Army in order to ensure that it remains postured to meet the demands of the future. It is developed firmly within the higher guidance and parameters provided by Defence White Paper 2009.
The first part titled The Challenge, outlines a vision of the future. The second part, titled The Response, outlines the Army's response to future conflict including a comprehensive description of how the future Land Force is to be modernised to undertake its directed and anticipated tasks.

In addition to the key modernisation documents, the Land Warfare Studies Centre produces a range of Journals, Working papers and Study papers that introduce and promote debate over future land warfare concepts and widely discussed issues.
