The Defense Department requires its land forces to seize, hold and secure land in a variety of missions around the globe. To do so, the Army and Marines have a variety of armored vehicles, both tracked and wheeled. Some date back to the Vietnam era, others even further. Budget uncertainties and the impact of sequestration have led to raids on modernization money to fund troops heading into harm’s way as a series of crises rise from the Middle East to the Russian border states. This special report will explore the plans for keeping vehicles "ready and relevant" out to 2060 and perhaps, beyond.
This special report, sponsored by Mercury Systems, provides a comprehensive perspective on how modular, open systems architectures are helping the military to modernize and keep pace with emerging technologies while simplifying acquisition and cutting cost. Learn More

With most of its rotorcraft closing in on 40 years of service and one topping 50 years, Army aviation is at a crossroads: without Congress lifting budget caps and approving the services’ internally-developed Aviation Restructure Initiative (ARI), modernization programs and next generation vertical lift plans are in jeopardy. There are no new rotary wing programs on the immediate horizon, future vertical lift aircraft not expected until about 2040, modernization will mainly focus on advanced sensors, radios, digital cockpits and electronics. This special report will discuss the need for Army aviation to invest in programs to provide more speed, survivability, lethality, and other capabilities, including innovation for the future, as well as the severe budget impacts they are faced with.
