Army-as-a-system Core Skills
The AAAS core skills have been well defined in previous publications. The AAAS core skills attempt to "capture the essence of military operations" by defining broad skills that remain relevant regardless of how a force may be structured, now or in the future. In addition, it was intended to be sufficiently generic to adequately describe a force at any particular level of interest. The AAAS construct is built on the concept that combinations of seven distinct core skills adequately describe a force structure through its capacity to perform functions and/or deliver effects.
