“Armament System Modularity and Scalability Enabling Operation Capability Across Expanding Threat Spectrum”

The Guns, Ammunition, Rockets, and Missiles (GARM) agenda seeks to leverage the benefits and improvements of legacy systems with new technology and emerging capabilities. The forum will provide an opportunity for government and industry to collaborate on a number of technologies and topics pertaining to future conflicts.  Enhancements to conventional and next generation systems and subsystems for air, land, and sea applications will be included. 

Leaders in the military services and Department of Defense will be included in the agenda, with a focus on key technologies and systems.  Focus areas planned to be a part of the forum include:  

  • Enabling Armament System and Technology Modularity for The Full Threat Spectrum
  • Evolving Legacy System Capability
  • Industrial Base Considerations
  • Manufacturing Technology and Approach Advances
  • New Technologies
  • Armaments Impacting Platform Advances
  • Autonomous Capability

Abstracts that address developments and initiatives in the above-mentioned areas are being solicited for the 2018 GARM forum that pertain to:

  • System Upgrades and Introduction of New Advanced Armament Systems
