Abstract : Efforts are underway to reorganize the Army to meet the new threats and to make best use of new equipment. Field Medical Support and Combat Mental Health Services are a part of this effort. Division 86 (actually a series of TOE revisions for the heavy, light and airborne/air assault divisions), Corps 86 and Army 86 are Continuously-evolving projects which should begin to be implemented by 1986-87. These changes are required by a belated appreciation of Threat capabilities, and by delivery of new weapons systems whose development was driven by high-technology without a full appreciation of how they should be integrated into the entire force structure. To get ahead of the problem next time, TRADOC is instituting a program to identify needs, deficiencies and potential breakthroughs well in advance. In the long term, this is called 'Air Land Battle 2000;' in the mid term, 'Mission Area Analysis (MAA)'.
