Future U.S. land forces are increasingly likely to face an adversary force that is overwhelmingly superior in size and armament with formidable anti-access/area denial (A2/AD) capabilities. SESU seeks to deliver system-of-systems (SoS) capabilities that could enable a small unit (~200-300 soldiers, corresponding materiel footprint, and limited rear-echelon support) to destroy, disrupt, degrade, and/or delay the adversary's A2/AD and maneuver capabilities in order to enable joint and coalition multi-domain operations at appropriate times and locations.
- Ensuring adaptive command control capabilities between Land Forces
- SESU efforts to disrupt A2/AD and maneuver capabilities
- Enabling system-of-systems capabilities for U.S. Land Forces for improved Force interoperability
