National Technology Summit on Soldier Lethality

  • Outlining The Path Forward in The Development of Cutting Edge Soldier Technology
  • November 9-10, 2022- Arlington, VA, United States

A Comprehensive & Immersive DoD/Gov and Industry experience focusing on the Next Generation Soldier Lethality, Current Capabilities, Needs & Requirements and Way Ahead Strategies for U.S Armed Forces

With battlefields becoming more lethal, it is mission critical that the Next Generation of dismounted and mounted soldiers have enhanced combat capabilities with increased lethality, mobility and survivability along with greater range and speed to counter emerging threats. To ensure dismounted overmatch, the Army must modernize, train, and structure the forces to build land-power capability against near-peer threats.

Join the National Technology Summit on Soldier Lethality as we bring together military and industry leaders together to address the future of soldier systems as well as the growing capability range of dismounted technology of the US Armed Forces.

The future multi-domain battlefields will be more lethal and much faster paced. The Joint Force must quickly adapt and train our troops in combating adversary threats, as well as ensuring overmatch. To do so, the DoD must modernize and structure the Joint force to build more lethal land-power capabilities against near-peer threats.
