This was a critical opportunity for the business’s combat vehicle industrial base to come together to discuss challenges and promote opportunities within the industry, with congressional representatives and US Army and Marine Corps customers.

“The work being done by the folks that make up our defense industrial base is critical to our national security,” said Rep. Mike Rogers (R-AL-3), ranking member of the House Armed Services Committee. “We must continue efforts to strengthen, enhance, and expand the industrial base.”

BAE Systems contracts about 1,000 suppliers in 45 states across its US industrial base, to support combat vehicle manufacturing.

“The future of combat vehicle design and innovation must be a focal point across industry today,” said Andy Corea, BAE Systems vice president of the Combat Mission Systems business. “Bringing our best and brightest partners together for the unique opportunity to meet with our congressional stakeholders and customers is essential for a forward look at the next several years of combat vehicle manufacturing."
