Future Indirect Fires USA Conference

Fort Sill, OK, United States

As the Army Future Command marks its one year anniversary of Forging the Future, we are elevating a two decades long development of Indirect Fires capabilities into the top and center of the Army's mission. With over 65% budget increase from FY19 and $1.35 billion requested budget for FY20, concepts and needs are transferring into actions and procurements.  

Future Indirect Fires 2019
is a learning space providing the latest initiatives and programs updates supporting the US priorities. Bringing service members, innovators and decision makers under the same roof, the program is designed to create a network with a well-rounded perspective to support innovation based on the needs of the Warfighter, and countering external advanced threats.

The summit will address those issues by bringing together Commanders, leading decision makers, industry and technology professionals to discuss modernization of existing arsenals, advancing AMD, developing LRPF/ PFRMS, exploring smart kits to improve mortar capabilities and the transition of Fire Support into the future.
