Abstract : Leveraging Armament Technology Integration to Achieve Modernization, Overmatch, and Operational Readiness. The 2019 Armament Forum theme connects the U.S. National Security objectives and those of Allied Nations to the stated priorities for modernization, superior capability and readiness and seeks to communicate the U.S. and Allied response through innovation in technology, integration, and collaboration. Topics address emerging challenges and opportunities and outline roadmaps to maturity and readiness. Attention to the complete armament system (soldier as a system), manned and unmanned autonomous platforms are included in the agenda. SMALL ARMS SYSTEMS: The Next Generation of Small Arms Integrated Systems: Weapons, Ammunition, Enablers, Training. The Small Arms section of the program will include presentations from PM Soldier Weapons, PM MAS, JSSAST, and JSSAP on next generation systems technologies. In addition, the agenda features panel discussions on fire control technology, reduced range ammunition, and lightweight ammunition technology. GUNS, AMMUNITION, ROCKETS and MISSILES SYSTEMS: Realizing Future Gun, Ammunition, Rocket, and Missile Systems: The GARM sessions address plans, challenges and modernization approaches for present and future gun systems greater than Cal 0.50. These sessions also address guns, feed systems, ammunition and associated fuzes, fire control, and platform integration. UNCONVENTIONAL EMERGING TECHNOLOGY ARMAMENT SYSTEMS: Accelerating a Broad Spectrum of Future Target Effects to the Warfighter. The UEA sessions address technologies, systems, capabilities, and applications that encompass a wide range of alternative combat capabilities to include Hypersonics, EM, Directed Energy, Lasers and Integrated Robotic Systems.
