WHO WE ARE
The CCDC Ground Vehicle Systems Center, headquartered at the Detroit Arsenal in Warren, Michigan, is the Army’s primary organic engineering talent to develop the next generation family of combat vehicles and thus deliver land dominance in the future fight.
As part of Army Futures Command, the CCDC GVSC is forging the future by developing world-class engineering talent in the areas of survivability and protection, autonomy and robotics, propulsion and mobility, electronics and power management, fuels and lubricants and ground system design and optimization.
The CCDC GVSC traces its history to the establishment of the Tank-Automotive Components Laboratory in 1946, an outgrowth of the Detroit Arsenal Tank Plant. During the early years, emphasis was placed on evolving new technologies to improve military ground vehicles, culminating in the development of the M1 Abrams tank.
