Urban Warfare, Sustainment and Logistics, 2035

Sustainment, Logistics, and the Urban Environment of 2035

Future conflicts in dense urban environments will be intense and unforgiving. Looking towards 2035, what technologies do you think the U.S. Army will use to sustain Soldiers and small units in the urban fight? What technologies will adversaries use to disrupt our freedom of action, constrain our operational reach, and reduce our endurance?


What emerging technologies will radically transform how the U.S. Army handles maintenance and logistics in urban environments?

What will the Army’s medics and other health professionals be able to do in 2035 that they cannot do today?

What technology trends will disrupt how the Army sustains forces in 2035, for better or for worse?
