  • Technologies for modernization
  • Integrated armament systems that improve lethality
  • Improvements to legacy systems that increase availability and effectiveness
  • Sustainability and readiness factors such as logistics, maintenance, and training
  • Manufacturing technologies and impacts on system capabilities

The Armament Systems Forum brings together three Division committees to addresses the full spectrum of armaments in plenary session and highly-focused tracks.  The themes this year for the committee tracks are:

Small Arms Systems Track: Next Generation of Integrated Small Arms Systems: weapons—ammunition—training

Guns, Ammunition, Rockets & Missiles Systems Track: Technology, Integration, Innovation: Realizing the Future of Gun, Ammunition, Rocket, and Missile System Modernization

Unconventional Emerging Technology Armament Systems Track: Accelerating a Broad Spectrum Of Future Effects for the Warfighter

Major elements of the 2019 Armament Systems Forum are:

  • Tutorials
