The schedule for the Association of the U.S. Army's three-day Global Force Symposium and Exposition in Huntsville, Ala., is shaping up to provide a detailed discussion about future Army capabilities.

“Delivering Capabilities for Multi-Domain Battle” is the theme of the event planned for March 13–15 at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, with speeches, panel discussions and exhibits focused on reshaping the force for future threats.

The Army Materiel Command’s Gen. Gustave F. Perna, the Training and Doctrine Command’s Gen. David G. Perkins and Steffanie B. Easter, the acting Army assistant secretary for acquisition, logistics and technology, will be keynote speakers. A presentation is also planned by Lt. Gen. Joseph Anderson, the Army’s deputy chief of staff for operations and plans.

Panel discussions are expected on the capabilities needed for close combat and other modernization needs, what changes might be needed in Army training and how operations strategy could be adjusted.

Additionally, there will be panel discussions about civilian leadership development and military health care, and presentations of Army awards for athletes, innovation and leadership.

More than 200 exhibits are expected, filling both the South and East halls of the convention center, with additional outdoor displays.
