Abstract: The United States Army Mobility Command, abbreviated “MOCOM”, is a newly organized unit in the frame of the overall reorganization of the Army. The modern concepts of warfare and the enormous development of technology brought it about, that today’s Army has to be extremely flexible capable to move large contingents of troops, materials and supplies, fast and at the shortest notice. Perhaps within the boundaries of this country, but maybe to other continents, within any possible geographical and climatic environment. It is the responsibility of MOCOM to assure the overall mobility of our Army through a number of subordinate specialized commands. In this capacity, we at MOCOM, have to think ahead technically into the future, and do long range technological planning. I am lucky to be a member of this specific team, which scans the new developments and guides them towards usefulness sin the coming decades. In order to fulfill this goal, MOCOM is also the direct link between the military and the industry.
