Past event: Armored Vehicles USA Conference

Modernizing The US Army's Armored Force For 2030+

Following the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which has demonstrated the continued tactical and operational importance of armored capabilities in the modern battlespace, along with growth and delivery of key armored vehicle programs, it is imperative that the US and allied nations continue to modernize their armored vehicle forces.

Numerous US and allied armored vehicle programs are also reaching maturity, providing opportunities for the ongoing innovation in weaponry, automative, electronics and material science that will continue to boost market growth throughout platform life cycles. Annually, the US military spends roughly $5 Billion on the acquisition of new Armored Vehicles.
This event therefore provides a unique opportunity to partner with key stakeholders and to map your product strategies and rollouts for the next decade and beyond.

Our event serves as a US centered platform for the comprehensive discussion of everything armored vehicle related, covering strategic issues to the threat environment, to the challenges of MRO and lifecycle management, all the way through to the next generation of ‘optionally manned’ combat vehicles. Over the course of our conference, military practitioners, research and development colleagues, acquisition managers and partners from industry will discuss emerging technologies, changing CONOPS, and preparations for the challenges of the Army of 2030 and beyond. Join us in Austin to:
  • Hear from the leaders of Army Futures Command, the Maneuver Center of Excellence and PEO GCS
  • Learn the latest developments in armored acquisition, training, testing and practice from across the US Armed Forces
  • Discuss the key issues and challenges with US and Allied armored leaders and innovators

Chaired by General David G. Perkins (Ret), this year's event will feature subject matter experts from across the US and partner nations delivering briefs on their fields of expertise including Operations, Training, Vehicle Design, Program Management, Sustainment & In-Service Support, Robotics and Autonomous Systems, Power Generation and Management, Vehicle Protection Suites, Decisive Lethality, Uncrewed Systems and Manned/Unmanned Teaming.

Join us for an insightful and important event covering the critical aspects of armored vehicle procurement, development and use.
