Some technology — such as cell phones, flat screen TV's and video game systems — are a luxury. In the Army, it's a necessity.
The U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command will showcase technologies from six of its nine laboratories and technology centers at the 2008 Infantry Warfighter Conference at the Columbus Georgia Convention Center Sept. 16-17.
This year’s theme, “The Infantry: Heart of the Army in the Contemporary Operational Environment,” will provide opportunities to discuss recent transitions in the Infantry operations environment and how to best train United States forces.
Technologies exhibited will include: ARL’s Flexible Display Technology and Survivability, Lethality and Enabling Materials research demonstrations; CERDEC’s portable power capabilities; ECBC’s Surrogate Buffalo Training Program; STTC’s Soldier Training Enhancement Package (STEP); TARDEC’s award winning HEAT and SPARK technologies and robotics systems.
This is a free public event.
