The Army next month will provide industry with information about the problems and scenarios to be featured in Project Convergence 22, according to a spokeswoman.

The virtual event, scheduled for Feb. 24, will provide a non-classified, “high-level view of the types of scenarios we are looking at,” Army Futures Command spokeswoman Robyn Mack said in an email. Registration information is not yet available, she said.

Presentation slides accompanying an Army announcement of the event indicate those scenarios will feature gap crossings, mid-range fires, asset protection and sustainment lines.

“If industry has some kind of technology that might improve our seeing, deciding or acting - they are welcome, and encouraged to engage with the Army,” Mack said in an email. Combat Capabilities Development Command is the first point of contact for industry partners with proposals for PC 22, and further information will be provided at the update.

Multinational partners are expected to participate in Project Convergence for the first time this year, after the 2020 event was Army-only, and last year’s exercise featured a joint force. The United Kingdom and Australia will participate in this year’s exercise.

PC 22 will include a denied or degraded electromagnetic environment, as well as new technologies and tactics that are designed around those situations, according to an earlier Army notice. It will feature a division or brigade headquarters at the National Training Center at Ft. Irwin, CA, which will compete against an opposing force at White Sands Missile Range, NM.
