The U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command’s Armament, Research, Development and Engineering Center (RDECOM ARDEC) will sponsor an Armaments Collaboration Industry Day scheduled for 25-26 October 2016 to provide detailed conceptual approach, technical information and requirements associated with the development of Platform-Agnostic (PA) Multi-Role Armament Systems (MRAS). It is intended for these next generation systems to be suitable for full spectrum of operations in Land, Sea, and Air Warfare. System requirements will encompass weapon performance, fire control (aiming/ tracking /guidance/navigation), munition selection and loading, programmable munition fuzing and terminal effects, launch and propellants, networked fires, and training. Emphasis will be placed on defeating the widest spectrum of threats as opposed to platform-centric point solutions. This initiative is intended to establish a holistic integrated armament systems approach that provides the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and SOCOM (and potentially NATO) with advanced multi-mission capabilities without compromise or dependence on legacy compatibility. The desired end state will also yield a reduction in logistical burden, investment, and sustainment costs across DoD. Our purpose is to sponsor and build an armaments collaboration community that will result in ongoing two-way open communications among all of the stakeholders and provide Warfighters with next generation weaponry for unprecedented overmatch in all battle environments.
