Military vehicle modernization has been identified as a key priority area for modernizing capabilities for the warfighter, and military vehicle modernization is a key to unlocking situational awareness, warfighter protection and lethality, and maneuverability on the battlefield. 

As the US faces a diverse array of threats in an era of strategic competition, the military will need systems that promote operations across all domains, including the crucial land domain. 

The second annual Military Vehicle Systems Summit will discuss the advancement of current programs and lines of research and engineering that aim to design and deliver innovative, highly capable, mobile, agile, lethal, and protected military vehicle systems to ensure the warfighter is able to maneuver to a position of advantage on the battlefield.

Attendees at this event will have the opportunity to hear from innovators, engineers, decision makers, and key military officials on updates to current and future combat vehicle programs. This year’s event will explore opportunities to integrate emerging technologies such as AI and ML to automate military vehicles and increase combat power. 

Additionally, this event will address the growing move toward vehicle electrification with their panel’s discussion on ways to ensure clean, resilient sustained power for the fleet and realistic expectations and timelines for transitioning to hybrid and electric power.
