Shaping the Future Force
Looking to 2030 and beyond, the Force Exploration Hub engages with a diverse range of thinkers to develop ideas, joint concepts and evidence to equip the future force to effectively confront a future operating environment of accelerated change and uncertainty.
The Force Exploration Hub works closely with Defence Science and Technology as well as the Services and Groups to generate, develop and test ideas. This work informs future Defence capability investment while building a unique and useful body of knowledge to support force structure plans and strategic assessments.
