Join us August 21-23, 2018, at the Army Science & Technology Symposium and Showcase at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC, to hear from Army leadership on their plans for the Army Futures Command and how the future of warfighting is changing with technology modernizations.

Army Science & Technology Symposium 


Come hear from leaders at the forefront of change within the Army’s science and technology enterprise, research, development, and engineering labs, as well as industry as they look to field soldiers with cutting edge technology-enabled capabilities.

Thought leaders, researchers, and warfighters alike will meet here to discuss the latest emerging technologies for the Army, options that enable effective, affordable capabilities to ensure success on the battlefield and beyond, such as:


Long-Range Precision Fires - technology capabilities that will restore Army dominance in range, munitions, and target acquisition.



Next Generation Combat Vehicle - along with other close combat capabilities in manned, unmanned, and optionally-manned variants-with the most modem firepower, protection, mobility, and power generation capabilities, to ensure our combat formations can fight and win against any foe.  


Future Vertical Lift Platforms - attack, lift, recon - in manned, unmanned, and optionally-manned variants that are survivable on the modem and future battlefield. 


Networked Hardware, Software, and Infrastructure - capabilities to enabled warfighters on the battlefield be sufficiently mobile and expeditionary to fight cohesively in any environment where the electromagnetic spectrum is denied or degraded. 


Air and Missile Defense Capabilities - technology that ensures our future combat formations are protected from modern and advanced air and missile delivered fires, including drones. 


Soldier Lethality - capabilities that span air fundamentals - shooting, moving, communicating, protecting and sustaining. We will field not only next generation individual and squad weapons, but also improved body armor, sensors, radios, load bearing exoskeletons. We must improve human performance and decision making by increasing training and assessment; starting at the Soldier level. This will require a rapid expansion of our synthetic training environment and deeper distribution of simulations capabilities down to battalion and companies, with simulation capability to model combat in megacities; a likely battlefield of the future. 


Future Technologies - to beat the threats of the future battlefield, the Army will need modern systems that meet the challenges of the new era of multidomain battle.


Workforce Training / STEM - we must build a future workforce trained in the disciplines of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and improve educational outreach if we are going to outpace our adversaries.

The NDIA has a policy of strict compliance with federal and state antitrust laws. The antitrust laws prohibit competitors from engaging in actions that could result in an unreasonable restraint of trade. Consequently, NDIA members must avoid discussing certain topics when they are together – both at formal association membership, board, committee, and other meetings and in informal contacts with other industry members: prices, fees, rates, profit margins, or other terms or conditions of sale (including allowances, credit terms, and warranties); allocation of markets or customers or division of territories; or refusals to deal with or boycotts of suppliers, customers or other third parties, or topics that may lead participants not to deal with a particular supplier, customer or third party.
