To address Soldier feedback requesting easier and faster ways to plan and manage the Army's advanced software-defined radios, such as the 2-Channel Leader Radio, the service is piloting a new software tool suite that reduces the time it takes to initialize, plan and load a brigade's worth of radios, from four weeks to minutes. Amy Walker, PM Tactical Network, PEO C3T public affairs, explains.

The U.S. Army has selected General Dynamics Land Systems to produce the Small Multipurpose Equipment Transport, or S-MET, to lighten Soldiers' loads by providing Infantry Brigade Combat Teams a robotic "mule" capability. The contract is valued at $162.4 million to produce 624 S-METs. Delivery to Soldiers begins in the second quarter of Fiscal Year 2021.

U.S. Army researchers recently tested ground robots performing military-style exercises, much like Soldier counterparts, at a robotics testing site in Pennsylvania as part of a 10-year research project designed to push the research boundaries in robotics and autonomy.

The Space Tracking and Surveillance System (STSS) satellites built by Northrop Grumman for the U.S. Missile Defense Agency (MDA) have far surpassed their four-year on-orbit design life, completing a tenth year of space operations. Still in operation today, the STSS satellites continue to provide critical support for missile and national defense.

The Russian Strategic Missile Troops (RVSN) continue to be rearmed with the newest radiological, chemical and biological defense equipment.
