Abstract : Joint Vision 2010 established the initial conceptual template for how we will channel the vitality of our people and leverage technological opportunities to achieve new levels of effectiveness in joint warfighting. This Concept for Future Joint Operations (CFJO) expands the Vision's new operational concepts to provide a more detailed foundation for follow on capabilities assessments. The CFJO also represents an important step toward the objective of achieving the right capabilities for the challenges we will face in the 21st century. America's Armed Forces must be able to shape the strategic environment to prevent war, respond when deterrence fails, and begin now to prepare for an uncertain and challenging future. Toward those ends, the CFJO will help us think about future joint operations in the context of the broad range of challenges anticipated. It will also help us identify shortcomings which will drive us to develop better and faster processes for evaluating and adapting emerging warfighting capabilities.
