Army Doctrine 2015 Publications & Updates
What we’re seeing with the initial Doctrine 2015 releases is most of the available ADP/ADRP material is at the “macro” level, and the reality is the overwhelming majority of the original core doctrinal material – the enduring principles, fundamentals, concepts, procedures and TTPs as presented in the SMARTbook series — remain UNCHANGED! It’s just most of the material is being REORGANIZED and RESTRUCTURED into the new publication system, which will occur over time as the Army is able to work through it.
So at this point, the impact in many cases equates essentially to a simple change in the reference citations. In fact, so far the released material equates to less than 5% to 10% change in the direct content of the current SMARTbook series. It will not be until the more complete and encompassing series of substantive ATTPs is reworked by the Army over the next 18-24 months before will be able to incorporate the material fully into the SMARTbook series (the Army targets all remaining doctrinal knowledge transitioned to Army techniques publications by Dec 2015).
Over the coming months — and as the Army’s Doctrine 2015 reengineering and restructuring process continues over the next 18 to 24 months — we’ll be offering comprehensive Doctrine 2015 ADP/ADRP SMARTupdates (and pen-and-ink reference citation and terminology change updates) for download through our website as Adobe PDF files (as we’re able to work through them and produce them)!

A Note About Revisions…
The standard life-cycle of an individual official military publication is approximately 5-8 years, with literally hundreds of Service publications all in various stages of publication by numerous, diverse organizations. Because our SMARTbooks are based on groups of related official military publications, our goal is to keep our books as up-to-date as possible by planning revisions following changes in the “core set” of manuals upon which a particular SMARTbook is based.
It generally take us a 4-6 months to research, compile and produce a new or revised title once the “core set” of doctrinal manuals have been made publicly available by the Services. Our projected publication date is an estimate based on the anticipated public release of various Service and DoD publications, of which we have no control.
