Thought leaders, researchers, and warfighters alike will meet here to discuss the latest emerging technologies for the Army, options that enable effective, affordable capabilities to ensure success on the battlefield and beyond, such as:

Long-Range Precision Fires - technology capabilities that will restore Army dominance in range, munitions, and target acquisition.

Next Generation Combat Vehicle - along with other close combat capabilities in manned, unmanned, and optionally-manned variants-with the most modem firepower, protection, mobility, and power generation capabilities, to ensure our combat formations can fight and win against any foe.  

Future Vertical Lift Platforms - attack, lift, recon - in manned, unmanned, and optionally-manned variants that are survivable on the modem and future battlefield. 

Networked Hardware, Software, and Infrastructure - capabilities to enabled warfighters on the battlefield be sufficiently mobile and expeditionary to fight cohesively in any environment where the electromagnetic spectrum is denied or degraded. 

Air and Missile Defense Capabilities - technology that ensures our future combat formations are protected from modern and advanced air and missile delivered fires, including drones. 

Soldier Lethality - capabilities that span air fundamentals - shooting, moving, communicating, protecting and sustaining. We will field not only next generation individual and squad weapons, but also improved body armor, sensors, radios, load bearing exoskeletons. We must improve human performance and decision making by increasing training and assessment; starting at the Soldier level. This will require a rapid expansion of our synthetic training environment and deeper distribution of simulations capabilities down to battalion and companies, with simulation capability to model combat in megacities; a likely battlefield of the future. 

Future Technologies - to beat the threats of the future battlefield, the Army will need modern systems that meet the challenges of the new era of multidomain battle.

Workforce Training / STEM - we must build a future workforce trained in the disciplines of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and improve educational outreach if we are going to outpace our adversaries.
