Why You Should Attend This Summit:

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 we face a diverse array of threats in an era of strategic competition, the US 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 our 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. Join us at this year’s second Military Vehicle Systems Summit to network with senior leaders and contribute to discussions surrounding the modernization of military vehicles and vehicle systems.

DSI’s team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Summit’s content and focus areas, and we will assemble the most respected minds in networking and communication technology as well as key policy makers across military and civilian offices. Our non-partisan approach allows us to reach across all services and organizations to bring together a truly holistic group of decision makers and solution providers. ___________________________________________________________________________________
