Army Futures

Who We Are


Our Function

Army Futures is a new Directorate in Army Headquarters, established to set the British Army’s aiming mark and drive change. It serves as the Army’s engine for research, experimentation and innovation.

Our Purpose

Futures exists to help the British Army win in competition and conflict.  Invariably, given the pace of social, political, technological and environmental change, as well as the tempo at which our adversaries adapt, this will necessitate us helping the Army to win differently.

Our Approach

Army Futures does this by determining how the Army wins next (in the next five years), and how it wins tomorrow (ten years and beyond), designing the approach, force structures and capability necessary to achieve advantage and provide utility.
