The Army Research and Development plan has an enduring relevance to Army's modernisation processes. The Plan streamlines Army's research activities while providing enhanced accountability and transparency regarding decisions about future capability.
In the short-term, the Plan ensures Army's continued relevance in the current operating environment and informs strategic perspectives of the future operating environment. The medium- and long-term implications include the establishment of benchmarks around research lines of effort and allow Army to chart its modernisation initiatives' progress. The Research and Development Plan will allow Army to remain at the forefront of evolution and revolution in land warfare to enhance detection and mitigation of potential strategic shock.
