Our Warfighter Systems Summit will convene experts from across the DoD to discuss maximizing warfighter lethality by improving the combat preparedness, survivability, and resiliency of our nation's close combat forces. Speakers from the Army, Marines and Special Forces will discuss the most pressing capability gaps and the initiatives aimed at ensuring the US maintains a decisive overmatch at the warfighter and ground level.
Maximizing close combat lethality is currently one of the main priorities of the Department of Defense. To reduce the high number of combat deaths of US Infantry forces, which account for nearly 90% of all US Military casualties, Secretary Mattis has dedicated considerable resources and funds to reforming and advancing the capabilities and preparedness of the close combat warfighter.
Our Warfighter Systems Summit is designed to support these efforts by fostering necessary discussion about the policies and initiatives aimed at replacing legacy capabilities with modern technologies to enhance warfighter lethality, survivability, situational awareness and maneuverability. The Summit will feature speakers from across DoD and services who will examine their critical work fielding innovative and modern weapons, equipment, gear, and training solutions.
Specifically, the agenda will examine the development of key advancements in areas including weapons, armor, vision and power. Lastly, the event will convene a panel to discuss the Synthetic Training Environment and use of VR in modernizing the way soldiers are trained for diverse combat situations.
Attendees at our Warfighter Systems Summit will have a unique opportunity to engage in open and honest conversation with key decision makers about the future of US close combat forces. Attendees will gain valuable insights into navigating the warfighter capabilities acquisition processes and will hear about the solutions urgently needed by warfighters to ensure the US maintains a tactical overmatch over its adversaries.
