Army leaders talk about what they learned during the six-week “campaign of learning” to link sensors to shooters and how they expect the program to evolve.

This event took place on October 15, 2020

Project Convergence is an exercise that will test the sharing of targeting data among the Army’s newest weapons, including aerial scouts, long-range missile launchers and armored vehicles. In a way, it’s the advent to a future of multidomain operations. But to make all of this happen service leaders need the right network, the right information technology and the right concepts. In this session, we explored what happened, what kind of hardware and software is necessary and what kind of modernization must take place to be successful.
