USA’s Subsystem Technologies has won an Army Rapid Prototyping and Technology Initiative (RPTI) contract as part of a major Joint Munitions & Lethality (JM&L) Life Cycle Management Command (LCMC) Strategic Sourcing Initiative.
RPTI is designed to increase the Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center (ARDEC) responsiveness to meeting the soldier's immediate field requirements.
Under RPTI, SUBSYSTEMs will provide the Picatinny Arsenal, New Jersey ARDEC program office with materials and services necessary to support the Global War on Terror (GWOT).
This vehicle supports the ARDEC mission to rapidly respond to customer needs for armament related products and services, including lethal and counter-lethal solutions for our warfighters who are on the front lines.
“Today’s ever-changing threats on the battlefield, as well as the surges in response to shifting military environments, require ARDEC to deliver the rapid prototypes and technology innovations to its customers within weeks of receiving the requirements,” said Indra Nayee, SUBSYSTEMs Director for Defense Operations.
As one of the specialized research, development and engineering centers within the US Army Materiel Command, ARDEC is a hub for the advancement of armament technology and engineering innovation.
