Army Future Studies Group

The Army Futures Studies Group (AFSG) is a broadening program that operates on an annual cycle and reports directly to the Commanding General of Army Futures Command (CG AFC). It was originally established by GEN Raymond Odierno as the Chief of Staff of the Army Strategic Studies Group (CSA SSG) in the summer of 2012. Over the past six years the group has developed a variety of research and analysis products that have positively impacted the U.S. Army at all levels, most recently serving as the planning cadre for the establishment of the AFC.

The mission of the AFSG is to prepare its Fellows to assume key leadership roles within the AFC and to conduct independent research and analysis on behalf of the CG AFC. The AFSG is diverse by design, bringing together operators, scientists, analysts and other experts representing the breadth of the total Army.

The AFSG builds high-performing multi-disciplinary teams and develops their skills to solve the complex problems the Army will face in the future. It promotes a culture of collaboration, experimentation and innovation. The AFSG develops networks of relationships across the Army and Defense Department, other U.S. governmental agencies, industry, business, and academia, often serving as the connective tissue that catalyzes enterprise-level results.
