Abstract : At RDECOM, we understand how science and technology bring the power of American innovation to everything we do. I am proud that RDECOM researchers, engineers and support personnel provide our nation, both at home and abroad, the technology and capabilities to win anywhere, anytime.The successful efforts of the Edgewood Chemical Biological Center workforce using their technical skills and knowledge to design and build the Field Hydrolysis Disposal System, and then deploying with it to destroy Syrias declared chemical weapons stockpile, is an example of American innovation.In this issue of Army Technology Magazine, we hope to highlight how sensors are integrating into military gear and vehicles in ways that will empower, unburden and protect our Soldiers. Greater situational awareness leads to improved threat detection in most battlefield environments. Future smart sensors will give us a decisive edge.
