The Association of the United States (AUSA) again produces an unclassified Global Force Symposium and Exposition for members of industry, academia, and the military community at the Von Braun Center, Huntsville, Alabama, USA from 26-28 March 2018.
The three-day event includes featured presentations from US Army leadership including keynote remarks from the Secretary of the Army, the Undersecretary of the Army, the Chief of Staff and the Vice Chief of Staff. Other senior army leaders such as the commanders of Forces Command, Training and Doctrine Command and Army Materiel Command will also participate.
The Global Force Symposium and Exposition combines the interests and ideas of warfighters and Senior Army Leaders with the spirit of entrepreneurial and commercial leaders of the defence industrial base. The symposium also incorporates thought leaders from academia and industry to provide a professional development forum that allows participants to learn, network, and move the US Army forward.
The theme for this year’s event “Modernising and Equipping America’s Army for Today and Tomorrow” provides a central focus to discuss challenges facing the US Army as it evolves its soldiers and equipment to meet the present and future missions. This evolution must enable soldiers and units to succeed across the entire spectrum of military operations and environments.
The US Army uses the Global Force Symposium and Exposition as a platform to formally introduce the new United States Army Futures Command and the why and how of changes to Army modernisation. The army’s intent is to fundamentally change the acquisition process to significantly reduce the time between identified requirements to procurement to get new capabilities into the hands of the warfighter sooner. One initiative of that change is by unifying the command and control of the process into Futures Command.
