We are in the business of generating useful ideas and meaningful insights that help inform capability development across the Marine Corps. For every project undertaken, we task-organize our own subject matter experts, as well as those from other stakeholder organizations to satisfy the project's purpose. Our mission is to develop and explore warfighting concepts and concepts of operations. We do this to identify potential capability gaps and opportunities in order to inform future force development. Under the Deputy Commandant for Combat Development and Integration, the Futures Directorate plays a critical role in shaping tomorrow's Marine Corps.
