Tactical Vehicles
Transforming the Fleet for New Missions Ahead

23 April, 2013 - 24 April, 2013, Alexandria, VA, United States

This year’s event will focus on the challenges ahead for the JLTV, MRAP, HMMWV ECV and MTVR/LVSR, including what will be done in the coming year to address the shifting priorities and vehicle requirements in OCOs.

The drawdown in Iraq and shift to a long-term, sustainment strategy in Afghanistan mean that now more than ever the military must develop vehicles adequate for these new missions. Shifting theater requirements and budget realities dictate that the tactical vehicles community reposition itself accordingly.

The Summit will focus on:

  • Objectives, plans and next steps to be taken in the JLTV, HMMWV ECV and MRAP program
  • Future requirements and planning for the TWV fleet
  • Developments in applied vehicle technology
  • Adapting to budget realities - streamlining vehicle development and acquisition

Presentations and workshops will highlight:

  • Latest research and development in armor and materials technology
  • Immediate practical applications for developers and users
  • Clear plans for overcoming challenges and enhancing capabilities in future vehicles via research and armor technology

Act now! Take the time to sign up and reserve your place among your peers in the tactical vehicles community
