The US Army last week took delivery of the first prototype Stryker Infantry Carrier Vehicle, outfitted with a 30mm cannon.
The upgraded Stryker vehicle will be known as the Dragoon, the name of the 2nd Cavalry Regiment. The prototype also features a new fully-integrated commander's station, upgraded driveline componentry and hull modifications, according to a press release from Program Executive Office Ground Combat Systems, according to the US Army’s October 28 press release.
The upgraded Strykers will integrate a Kongsberg MCT-30mm Weapon System with a remotely-operated, unmanned turret; a new, fully-integrated commander's station; and upgraded driveline component and hull modifications, according to information from Program Executive Office-Ground Combat Systems.
The Urgent Operational Needs statement submitted in March 2015 resulted in a directed Stryker lethality requirement, one that included an accelerated acquisition effort to integrate the 30mm canon on the vehicles, said Army Vice Chief of Staff Gen. Daniel B. Allyn.
Fielding to the 2nd Cavalry Regiment in Europe will begin in May 2018, which represents "a near-record time from concept to delivery," according to Allyn.
According to PEO GCS, the Army has provided programmatic direction to initiate the first two elements of the Stryker Fleet Lethality strategy: providing an under-armor Javelin capability for the Stryker and improving the capabilities of the Stryker Anti-Tank Guided Missile vehicle to better locate and engage targets via networked fires.

US Armys collaboration with National Security Agency has led to advancement in cryptographic modernization, information security and tactical network protection. The US Army Materiel Commands Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center (CERDEC) and NSA are together defining a cooperative approach to expediting cryptographic product fielding, in which the Cyber Security and Information Assurance (CSIA) division will support many of the certification functions normally performed by NSA to ensure products like software-defined tactical radios meet strict NSA security requirements and quality standards, the service announced in a statement last week
