The Association of the United States Army (AUSA) held its annual meeting and exhibition last week in Washington, DC. Walking the exhibit halls, one can see and even touch examples of the most advanced platforms and systems the Army is deploying, considering acquiring, or has in development. Industry used the event to showcase many innovative technologies, concepts and even prototypes of future platforms and weapons systems. This experience led me to ask a simple question: is it possible that the Army could find much of what it needs to initially address its modernization priorities on the exhibit floor at the AUSA convention? The answer appears to be yes. I have written more about the innovative capabilities industry showcased at the AUSA convention for RealClearDefense here.
