star this property answer text <br /><p>Whilst formally released outside the Department in December, the Development, Concepts and Doctrine Centre (DCDC) published the &quot;Future Operating Environment 2035&quot; (FOE35) internally so that it was available throughout the SDSR period. FOE35 was a source of information on the threats and challenges that Defence would be asked to address in the future. Consequently, SDSR decisions were informed by the Future Operating Environment work and, in particular, the need to focus on being more agile and innovative. The Ministry of Defence continues to consider how the future operating environment will shape the business of Defence. DCDC will take this work forward as it develops the Defence Joint Operating Concept and the Joint and environmental future operating concepts in 2016.</p> more like this
