Description

This annual publication details programs and illustrates our ongoing efforts to empower, unburden and protect our Soldiers. The Army’s Acquisition community is charged with the solemn responsibility of maintaining our Soldiers’ unprecedented edge against current and future threats.

With program descriptions, status and specifications, projected activities, and names and locations of large and small contractors, this book will provide you with a better understanding of our efforts to provide  Soldiers with the best, most advanced and sustainable equipment possible. To this end, we are mindful of the public trust imposed by the use of taxpayer resources. We continuously seek to improve our business practices to meet the needs of our Soldiers on an efficient and timely basis.

In providing our Soldiers with world-class capabilities, Army acquisition’s most important asset is our people. Our skilled and dedicated professionals, working in Program Executive Offices and program offices throughout the nation, execute diverse responsibilities to enable the disciplined management of an extensive acquisition portfolio with programs that range from Soldiers systems to precision fires and from air and mission defense to ground combat systems.
