This study was undertaken to analyze and document the Army's current policy and guidance governing the Horizontal Technology Integration (HTI) strategy. HTI increases common situational awareness and reduces Life Cycle Cost by simultaneously integrating multiple platforms with developing technologies. The Second-Generation Forward-Looking Infrared HTI program stands as an example of HTI strategy implementation. This program has led the Army in HTI organizational and policy development. The research identifies issues related to the Army's HTI policy and program implementation. Recommendations are provided to enhance the strategy's evolution in the Army's and the Department of the Defense's procurement structures. The study concludes the HTI strategy is a viable method for modernizing the force with significant advantages to be realized from its implementation.
