Armament and Munitions Forum Objectives

The purpose of the 2013 Armament and Munitions Forum is to emphasize the importance of a government/industry partnership focused to maintaining readiness and technology/system innovation during times of budget constraints and uncertainty. The forum will address key system and technology segments and provided opportunity to share and discuss challenges and opportunities during this period. Topics focused to the evolution of the industrial base will also be addressed.

Small Arms Systems:
Facing terrorist forces from military operations on urban terrain to the open battlefield, American forces - both military and law enforcement require state of art and best equipment. In a time of program uncertainty and budget constraints the ability to realize technology and system innovation while also maintaining readiness requires that the government/industry partnership works together to maintain capability.  The focus must remain on enhancements to legacy small arms systems, and innovation in new capabilities including weapons, ammunition, fire control, and other supporting resources. Special attention to unmanned platforms and digitization of the battlefield will address a vision to the future.

Guns, Ammunition, Rockets, and Missiles:
The Guns, Ammunition, Rockets, and Missiles community focus areas include medium and large caliber direct and indirect fire technologies, armament systems for land, sea, and air applications, energetics, precision munitions, and systems integration onto current and emerging platforms. Attention to modeling and simulation is key to the innovation objectives of the segment. In times technology and manufacturing changes new approaches to ensure affordability will also be addressed.

Unconventional and Emerging Armament Systems (UEAS):
The Unconventional and Emerging Technology Armament Systems focus areas include (but are not limited to) electromagnetics, lasers, high power microwave, no-lethal  counter personnel and material, hypersonic, sensor defeat (spectrum denial), and other emerging armament technologies. Topics addressed include opportunities for UEA technologies and systems and status of technologies enabling new armament capabilities. Progress in several key areas will be highlighted.
