Victory Starts Here!

The four TRADOC functions of DESIGN. ACQUIRE. BUILD and IMPROVE are crucial to enable the Army to meet specific Army strategic aimpoints. These aimpoints are defined in the Army Strategic Plan between now and 2050 for the three chief of staff of the Army priorities of Readiness (Current Fight), Future Army (Future Fight) and Take Care of the Troops (Always). These aimpoints describe Army capabilities and conditions for the Current Fight, Next Fight and Future Fight.

TRADOC designs the future force to ensure that the United States Army remains the dominate land power in the world.

Multi-Domain Battle is the concept that will allow the Army, with the Joint Force, to maintain military dominance by developing both greater self-sufficiency and deeper joint integration to fight and win without assured air, sea, space and cyber dominance.

TRADOC recruits the next generation of Soldiers and leaders.

Improve Accessions Enterprise: The Army is Soldiers. The Army requires an accessions system that finds and recruits the best future Soldiers across the nation.

TRADOC trains the next generation of Soldiers and leaders.

Soldier 2020 will ensure all entering Soldiers have the knowledge, skills, and abilities they need to succeed in their MOS. It maximizes the Army’s use of available talent.

Lessons learned, refined doctrine and leader development merge at TRADOC to improve the Army .

  • Adapt the Institutional Army: the Army must change for the information age. New methods of training, education, career management, logistical support, financial management, communication–internal and external, and a host of others will improve the Army.
  • New Doctrine: battlefield experiences combined with new concepts require new doctrine that effectively describes how the Army will accomplish its assigned missions.
  • Talent Management: the Army must transcend its industrial age personnel management systems to fully develop and employ the talents each Soldier brings to the fight.
  • Army University: TRADOC is reforming and systematizing the Army school system to make it both more effective and more efficient.
  • NCO 2020: the future will place greater demands on NCOs. NCO 2020 ensures that NCOs have the skills, training and experiences to continue to lead the Army into the future.

    Air Force One Has New Defensive Systems, Antennas

    Plans for a new presidential aircraft by the end of the decade have been set aside, but the current flying White House is constantly being upgraded and has been observed with new communications and defensive systems.

    A new aircraft was once expected sooner. We have recognized for several years now that the Air Force One replacement is out there in our future in the late teens, Air Force Secretary Michael Donley said in September 2011. But since then, the recapitalization plan has been put on hiatus.

    President Barack Obama famously criticized Detroit automobile executives for using business jets to fly to Washington for a Capitol Hill appearance. That, plus a simple absence of funding, means that what the Air Force calls Presidential Aircraft Recapitalization (PAR) is going nowhere. In the past the Air Staff quoted a target date of 2017, and later revised it to 2019. More recently, officials say a new plane for the commander-in-chief is still farther away.

    The Boeing 747-8 and Airbus A380 have been named as possible candidates to replace the existing presidential Boeing 747s. In 2009, Airbus s parent company said it would offer a candidate to any competition for a new Air Force One.

    There appears to be no issue of structural fatigue with the presidential 747s. As of 2009, the last year for which figures were released, each aircraft had flown about 6,500 hours and was expected to log 450 hours per year. A 747 airliner of the same vintage, kept in the air far more often, would have at least ten times as many airframe hours on its structure.

    Air Force One is the radio callsign for any Air Force aircraft with the president aboard. The term is used conversationally to refer to two VC-25As, or Boeing 747-200s (serial numbers 86-28000 and 86-29000) that have pulled presidential transportation duty since 1990. George H. W. Bush was the first president to fly on one of the 747s.

    The aircraft are flown by the Presidential Airlift Group (PAG), and belong to Air Mobility Command s 89th Airlift Wing, based at Andrews AFB, Md.

    During a stop at Patrick Air Force Base, Fla. in June, aircraft 86-29000 was seen to be equipped with various items that help keep the president in touch and provide security.

    Not new to the VC-25A:

    • About five AN/ALQ-204 Matador infrared (IR) countermeasures devices are located at the tail and behind the four engines, Previously used on the VC-137C (Boeing 707-320B) presidential aircraft and on airliners and executive aircraft, the device emits pulsed IR signals to foil attacks by heat-seeking missiles.

    Thought to be new or recent additions to the VC-25A:

    • An AN/AAR-54(V) missile launch warning receiver located at the tail is intended to report and track missile threats by zeroing in on their ultraviolet exhaust signature. The receiver is also in use on special-operations warplanes like the MC-130H Combat Talon II.
    • The AN/AAQ-24 Nemesis Directional Infra-Red Counter Measures (DIRCM) system, which can be directed by the AAR-54, fires pulsating flashes of IR energy that confuse a missile s guidance system.
    • Conformal antennas: the VC-25As have been retrofitted with multi-purpose conformal antennas adaptable to satellite communications systems and other purposes. They resemble Band-Aids or patches but are, in fact, antennas that appear to have no effect on the aerodynamic performance of the 747.
