The Army's Ground Vehicle Systems Center plans to hold industry days, including one-on-one meetings, over three days in April, according to a March 14 announcement.

Representatives from different projects, as well as the center’s director, will present ongoing and future opportunities on April 18, according to the announcement. Topics will include power, energy, mobility, survivability, robotics, electronics and vehicle architectures.

Attendees can meet with up to three government technical representatives on April 19 and 20, according to the announcement.

“Industry Days serve as a forum to provide information on GVSC’s ground vehicle systems technology focus, as well as ancillary force projection technologies, to include technology roadmaps, planned spending and opportunities for collaboration with industry, academia and other government partners,” the announcement said.

The GVSC is a research center within the Combat Capabilities and Development Command. It is responsible for research and development for the Army’s ground vehicle programs, most of which are managed out of buildings adjacent to the GVSC at the Detroit Arsenal, MI.

There will be virtual and in-person attendance options, according to the announcement. The in-person event will be held in Warren, MI, near the Detroit Arsenal.
