This publication presents the results of work done for the Office of
the Deputy Under Secretary of the Army for International Affairs
(DUSA-IA) in FY98 anticipating the potential effects of Force XXI on
multinational force compatibility in future coalition operations. This
work was done in conjunction with a study examining the implications of land force dominance for U.S. Army engagement, sponsored
by the Office of the U.S. Army Deputy Chief of Staff for Intelligence
Both studies were undertaken within RAND Arroyo Center’s Strategy,
Doctrine, and Resources Program. The Arroyo Center is a federally
funded research and development center sponsored by the United
States Army. This work should be of interest to Army planners, as
well as to students of multinational military operations and to the
broader defense community.
