Dear Colleague,
It is with great pleasure that I invite you to join us at the second annual
Future Soldier Technology USA, taking place from the 8th to the 10th
of June in Arlington, VA, USA. North America’s premier conference
dedicated solely to dismounted Soldier and Marine equipment
modernization and capability development. Drawing on the great
success of the 2019 launch event, the meeting will bring together
key government planners, policy makers, combat and materiel
developers, along with industry partners, to drive discussion on the
future of Soldier/Marine modernization.
In the face of growing near-peer threats, rapidly developing
technological assets, and the ever-changing nature of combat, the
dismounted Soldier/Marine remains as important as ever in assuring
of success in a multi-domain operational environment. With Soldier
lethality taking its place as one of the US Army’s key modernization
priorities, improving individual and squad capabilities to maintain
long-term warfighting superiority, both for US and allied forces,
remains a key area of discussion.
Future Soldier Technology USA 2020 will facilitate a discussion on
Soldier/Marine performance in its entirety, offering a truly holistic
agenda covering lethality, mobility, maneuverability, and power, as
well as C4I considerations in the newly introduced Dismounted Soldier
Situational Awareness focus day. Innovative US and international
programs and focus areas, including next generation weapons and
fire control (NGSW-AR/R/FC), ISSP, the evolution and integration of
manned-unmanned teaming, and more will be covered. Expanding
and growing the event from last year, there has never been a better
time to engage on new technologies and developments to soldier
modernization.
This year we are delighted to welcome support from the DoD
community, PEO Soldier, USMC Systems Command, US Army Futures
Command, the Close-Combat Lethality Task Force, and a range
of international military experts. Future Soldier Technology USA will
continue to provide a unique platform for government, academia
and industry to address the operator requirements, and very latest
developments in enhancing the effectiveness of the dismounted
Soldier/Marine.
I believe this conference is the perfect forum for this important topic
and I would hope that we can, through the medium of spirited
discussion and networking, enhance our approach, analysis, and
solutions to address close combat overmatch against pacing threats.
I urge you to join us in June 2020 to participate alongside a diverse
set of US and international experts and decision makers, in both the
dismounted soldier situational awareness focus day and the wider
conference to realize this goal.
Looking forward to your presence.

Chaired by Colonel (Ret’d) Richard Hansen, Former Program Manager, Soldier Warrior, PEO Soldier, US Army
As soldiers continue to be deployed across a range of diverse theatres, modernising the war fighter remains a critical task
for all militaries. Today, there is significant importance placed on considering the soldier as a system – integrating wireless
communications, digital displays, and an ever-growing number of sensors to gather, disseminate, and exploit growing data
sets to maintain information superiority and full-spectrum dominance.
In a contested battlefield, blue force tracking, spatial awareness, and effective communication between friendly units remain
vitally important, whilst tracking enemy combatants across complex and degraded environments and protecting networks
through robust cyber security continue to be key to guaranteeing mission success.
In order to achieve greater situational awareness, militaries continue to utilise new equipment and technologies, often at
the cutting edge of scientific development – integrating micro-UAVs and robotic autonomous systems into the arsenals of
dismounted troops to build an effective operating picture. Ensuring effective all-weather operations through night vision and
thermal optics also remain critical for any modern defence force – as the landscapes of warfare continue to evolve.
This Dismounted Soldier Situational Awareness focus day will provide the perfect setting for technical experts, military end users,
and solution providers to share their latest developments within these spheres and build an understanding of how technologies
and equipment are being deployed. With key updates from the US Army, Canadian ISSP Programme, and a special focus on
manned-unmanned teaming and Robotics and Autonomous Systems, this meeting remains to be an enlightening and lively
forum for our esteemed panel and attendees.
TOPICS COVERED WILL INCLUDE:
• Communication digitisation

  • 2. Future Soldier Technology USA 2020 www.futuresoldierusa.com Register online at www.futuresoldierusa.com Dear Colleague, It is with great pleasure that I invite you to join us at the second annual Future Soldier Technology USA, taking place from the 8th to the 10th of June in Arlington, VA, USA. North America’s premier conference dedicated solely to dismounted Soldier and Marine equipment modernization and capability development. Drawing on the great success of the 2019 launch event, the meeting will bring together key government planners, policy makers, combat and materiel developers, along with industry partners, to drive discussion on the future of Soldier/Marine modernization. In the face of growing near-peer threats, rapidly developing technological assets, and the ever-changing nature of combat, the dismounted Soldier/Marine remains as important as ever in assuring of success in a multi-domain operational environment. With Soldier lethality taking its place as one of the US Army’s key modernization priorities, improving individual and squad capabilities to maintain long-term warfighting superiority, both for US and allied forces, remains a key area of discussion. Future Soldier Technology USA 2020 will facilitate a discussion on Soldier/Marine performance in its entirety, offering a truly holistic agenda covering lethality, mobility, maneuverability, and power, as well as C4I considerations in the newly introduced Dismounted Soldier Situational Awareness focus day. Innovative US and international programs and focus areas, including next generation weapons and fire control (NGSW-AR/R/FC), ISSP, the evolution and integration of manned-unmanned teaming, and more will be covered. Expanding and growing the event from last year, there has never been a better time to engage on new technologies and developments to soldier modernization. This year we are delighted to welcome support from the DoD community, PEO Soldier, USMC Systems Command, US Army Futures Command, the Close-Combat Lethality Task Force, and a range of international military experts. Future Soldier Technology USA will continue to provide a unique platform for government, academia and industry to address the operator requirements, and very latest developments in enhancing the effectiveness of the dismounted Soldier/Marine. I believe this conference is the perfect forum for this important topic and I would hope that we can, through the medium of spirited discussion and networking, enhance our approach, analysis, and solutions to address close combat overmatch against pacing threats. I urge you to join us in June 2020 to participate alongside a diverse set of US and international experts and decision makers, in both the dismounted soldier situational awareness focus day and the wider conference to realize this goal.
