The U.S. Army Signal Regiment gets ready for the future

The Signal Tactical Functional Area Assessment (FAA) conducted a top to bottom look at the challenges facing the Regiment in supporting Army full spectrum operations during the 2014-2018 timeframe. The analysis showed that the Signal Regiment had operational gaps that must be addressed. Today’s organizational structures cannot provide full ARFORGEN coverage for units without embedded Signal elements. The unsupported units include Theater units, functional brigades and battalions, and maneuver companies. The modular force does not provide the training and leader development in embedded Signal forces; and the Signal Regiment is unable to rapidly field evolving cyber technologies into the force due to an antiquated industrial age acquisition system in order to provide Mission Command Essential Capabilities (MCEC) to the Warfighter at all echelons.
