The Army Multi-Domain Operations (MDO) concept introduces the idea of exploitation of conditions by adversaries across the competition continuum
but stops short of identifying what conditions are exploitable.1 OE&TA began its study by identifying pervasive conditions across the contemporary strategic
environment. OE&TA then assessed which of the conditions that could be exploited would likely continue through 2035. Ultimately, OE&TA identified 24
strategic environment conditions that actors will likely exploit through 2035.
