WHO WE ARE
Located at Detroit Arsenal in Warren, Michigan, the Next Generation of Combat Vehicles’ mission is to narrow or close cross domain maneuver capability gaps by developing Army requirements for our next generation of combat vehicles, while synchronizing and overseeing all supporting materiel development activities, experiments and assessments. The team will use a rapid, iterative process to capability development that reduces costs, technological obsolescence, acquisition risk and increases the speed of delivery.
The Cross-Functional Team will look to non-traditional suppliers and academics as well as leverage early prototyping and Soldier experimentation before defining requirements. To develop the next generation of combat vehicles, the Army is exploring development of key enabling technologies in the following areas: Maneuver Robotics and Autonomous Systems, Directed Energy and Energetics, Power Generation and Management, Advanced Armor Materiel Solutions and Vehicle Protective Suites. Soldiers must have a next generation combat vehicle that provides increased survivability, mobility and lethality at a reduced weight, to close with and destroy peer threats through maneuver, firepower and shock-effect.
