Army Working with Industry Partners on Modernization

The U.S. military crafting plans to keep pace with advancements by adversaries.

The U.S. Army reported the modernization strategy this week that partners with industry, science and technology. The Army Rapid Capabilities and Critical Technologies Office (RCCTO) is being authorized to rapidly develop and adapt to technological advancements to keep up with the modernization of U.S. adversaries.

The initiative seeks limited quantities of combat-capable prototypes to be expedited to operational units rather than using the traditional acquisition path.

Dr. Craig Robin of the Directed Energy Project Office said, “the RCCTO is organized to leverage this enthusiasm in industry as well as investment from other government agencies and authorities, like other-transaction authority, granted by Congress. We will transition a revolutionary and new weapon system to the warfighter by assembling the right team and providing senior leaders with a credible path to a capability.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the Pentagon as efforts are made to keep the U.S. military at the leading edge of technology.
  • For the U.S. Army as industry modernization strategies are implemented.
  • For U.S. troops stationed in harm’s way.
