Abstract : The Army of the future, as seen in the context of Force XXI, will be rapidly tailorable, rapidly expandable, strategically deployable, and effectively employable in order to achieve decisive results in future war and operations other than war (OOTW) in all operational environments. The combat service support (CSS) units of the future must leverage current and future technologies to provide efficient support. The current divisional CSS organizations contain redundancies that both swells the organizations and therefore limits the support capability they will provide to their supporting combat units in future contingencies. There are many technology enhancements currently under review that will definitely upgrade the CSS unit's ability to provide quality support to the forces. However, there is a need to take a radical view to reorganizing the CSS organizations themselves to further their efficiencies. Current and emerging technologies combined with re-organizing the divisional CSS units will result in efficient, focused, and seamless logistics support to the Army in the twenty-first century.
