Our 3rd Annual Warfighter Systems Summit will serve as an educational 'town-hall' type forum to explain current and future Department of Defense efforts to maximize the lethality, protection, & situational awareness of US close combat Warfighters. Speakers from DoD, U.S. Army, USMC, & HQAF will detail how recent initiatives such as the establishment of the Close Combat Lethality Task Force are aiming to transform combat units into "Warfighting Machines" by replacing legacy Warfighter capabilities with enhanced systems and technologies.
The current emphasis on increasing close combat lethality has never been higher. It is currently one of the main priorities of the Department of Defense and over the next five years, 3.6 billion dollars will be distributed to enhance such lethality priorities. With a large percentage of casualties coming from the infantry level, the focus to improve their survivability, mobility, & situational awareness to keep pace with the speed of War is at a premium. Former Secretary Mattis dedicated a large amount of resources and funds to this initiative and now the Director of the Close Combat Lethality Task Force and others across the DoD are continuing this effort by facilitating scalable, affordable, & adaptable architectures, with the end goal being to further equip and protect the Warfighter, creating a decisive overmatch to defeat the adversary at the small unit level.
Our 2nd Annual Warfighter Systems Summit will feature perspectives from the various military services on how current advances being made on military systems and devices will be key moving forward to help reduce weight, increase power, and increase Soldier maneuverability. Sessions will provide important details on how new technologies are being integrated to help increase a Warfighter's lethality & survivability at the squad level, in areas such as night vision, tactical connectivity, and weapons systems; to ultimately give them the ability to fight and win anytime and anywhere moving forward. Lastly, this Summit will gather a panel to discuss the development of advanced LVC training & simulation methods that will help close the gaps and assist small unit levels anywhere on the battlefield. Attendees at our Warfighter Systems Summit will have a unique opportunity to engage in open and honest conversation with key decision makers and acquisition authorities 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.
