Future Combined Arms Breaching Technology to be highlighted at AUSA 2020 | Article

WASHINGTON — Please join the Chief of Engineers, LTG Scott Spellmon and a team of experts for a virtual discussion on Future Combined Arms Breaching Technology at AUSA’s Warriors Corner, Tuesday, Oct. 13 at 12:30 p.m.Combined Arms Breaching is a challenging and complex task. Traditional breaching operations worked well during Desert Storm when the US Army breached the fortified 'Saddam Line' near Baghdad, Iraq in 1991. However, the technological advances of near peer adversaries, such as the use and integration of smart mines and obstacles, present new challenges for many of our tried and true breaching tools and techniques, which we have used for nearly a century. While bridging strategies are developing, future conflicts must include innovative solutions and technologies.Every element of traditional breaching: suppress, obscure, secure, reduce, and assault (SOSRA) is impacted by emerging technologies. Future requirements call for better survivability of Soldiers and equipment in the breach, as
