We created a 2019 progress update on the latest NGCV modernization and acquisition developments. As well as a breakdown of:
- The latest news in artificial intelligence, active protection systems, and robotics
- Modernization & procurement highlights from the DoD's FY19 budget
- Recently awarded & active NGCV opportunities
In preparation for Future Ground Combat Vehicles 2019, we wanted to exclusively share these past presentations with you. Below you will find expert content on:

To successfully build the NGCV by 2035, several new and promising technologies are being applied in the combat vehicles space. Among these promising technologies, artificial intelligence, active protection systems (APS), and robotics are scheduled to be implemented in the near future. In addition to looking at the latest technologies, we also highlighted the largest procurements in the Department of Defense's FY19 budget request, as well as all of the active NGCV opportunities.
Overcoming the "Heavy" Price of More Armor: Interim Solutions for Tank and Fighting Vehicle Vulnerabilities
After focusing on counterinsurgency and asymmetric warfare in the Middle East, Africa and Southwest Asia for nearly two decades, the U.S. military is changing the way it will fight in the next 30 years. The rise of China as a global competitor and Russia’s increasing belligerence in the regions around the Baltic and Black seas, have U.S. military planners – especially in the Army – rethinking their procurement needs, including what kind of armored ground combat vehicles will be needed. Download this article to learn more about the Army's plans to find interim solutions for tank and fighting vehicle vulnerabilities.
Three program managers, Colonel James Shirmer, Michael Milner and Glen Dean. And an overview of their upcoming program requirements for the AFV, AMPV and SBCT. If you would like a copy emailed to you, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
