Empower, unburden, and protect the Warfighter by providing superior armaments solutions that dominate the battlefield
Innovative Armaments Solutions for Today and Tomorrow
From the Director's Desk
Developing advanced weapons, ammunition and fire control systems for the U.S. Army is vitally important. Our efforts simply must result in capabilities that make the American warfighters the most well-equipped and technologically superior fighting force in the world. Fortunately, our workforce of scientists, engineers and technical support staff understands this important role. They work hard to maintain leadership in their fields of study. They understand how critical it is to work with Soldiers to understand their challenges, their combat environments and their concerns about equipment. They understand that every taxpayer dollar that fuels their efforts is precious. Furthermore they are committed to the ARDEC mission: To empower, unburden and protect the warfighter by providing superior armaments solutions that dominate the battlefield. In order to advance this mission we are always looking to academia and industry to continue to challenge us with new ideas and innovation. We look forward to developing productive relationships, and encourage you to reach out to us to discuss your ideas and your concerns.
