Future Ground Combat Vehicles Conference

  • April 29-May 1, 2019
  • Detroit, Livonia Novi, MI, United States

Spring Forward into The Future of Ground Combat Vehicles

With each iteration of the Future Ground Combat Vehicles Conference Series we are getting bigger and better! Our fall FGCV conference saw 250+ attendees come together from both the military and industry. This was made possible by the support we have received from the Army and more specifically the GCV community. It is because of that continued support that we are proud to announce our Spring FGCV conference.

We will continue the conversations and discussions from our last conference. Our speakers will break down the direction the NGCV and modernization efforts are leading. We will have speakers from the commercial industry that will talk about AI, autonomy and robotics and how those technologies can be applied to military GCVs. We will have ample time for networking with industry leaders, decision makers from Army GCV community, speakers and researchers. FGCV has proven to be an effective platform for the Army to engage with the industry and for the industry to develop meaningful relationships with the Army and industry partners. We are excited to put together another great FGCV conference this Spring.
