POC - 2019 4th Annual Army Forum

4th Annual Army Forum | Potomac Officers Club


For the 2020 fiscal year, the U.S. Army has requested a budget of $182 billion to complete a “modernization renaissance.” The Army is seeking $12.2 billion in research, development, test and evaluation funding and $21.8 billion in procurement that aligns with the Army’s six modernization priorities: Long-Range Precision Fires, Next Generation Combat Vehicle, Future Vertical Lift, the network, air-and-missile defense and soldier lethality.

During Potomac Officers Club’s 4th Annual Army Forum, Dr. Bruce Jette will serve as the keynote speaker to address the latest initiatives and modernization plans for the U.S. Army. In addition, an expert panel of senior government leaders, including MG David Bassett, Stuart Hazlett and Dr. Alexis Ross of the service branch, will discuss the progress, innovations and accomplishments of the Army’s modernization renaissance over the last year, what challenges remain, and how industry can help in 2020 and beyond.
