“When you walk around AUSA and see all of the technology advancements from industry, it’s really eye-opening,” says John George, Leidos Strategic Account Executive and retired Army Major General. “It’s a great opportunity for us to have meaningful conversations with the Army and to increase our understanding of their challenges while they gain a better understanding of our capabilities.”
For the Army, the major theme for the event is Building the Army of 2030.
“The Army has chosen 2030 as a point in the future when they’re going to be a multi-domain force capable of operating across land, air, sea, space and cyber,” George said. “It’s a significant mark on the wall to advance their capabilities to be able to fight very differently.”
For Leidos, the company’s major theme for the event is Modernization for Perpetual Advantage.
“The Army wants and needs a sustained campaign of modernization,” George said. “The need for our military to integrate leading-edge and sometimes disruptive technologies is not a one-and-done thing—it’s continual. We believe we can help them accomplish this with our company’s ability to deliver at scale and speed.”
