The asymmetric advantages that Army aviation offers to U.S. military operations around the world is the focus of a one-day event that the Assn. of the U.S. Army (AUSA) will convene in Washington, D.C.’s suburbs tomorrow.
The “Army Aviation Hot Topic” session, which is sold out, is one of the first activities to be held at AUSA’s new conference and event center at its Arlington, Virginia, headquarters. The center opened this month. The group’s Institute for Land Warfare will host the session.
Army aviation and industry leaders will speak on several topics, including “Advancing Disruptive Technology to Win in a Complex Operational Environment” and “Future Joint/Combined Arms Maneuver.” Other topics include “Advancing Training and Leader Development” and “Advancing Unmanned Aircraft Systems.”
The Army’s vice chief of staff, Gen. Daniel Allyn, will kick off the day’s discussions, followed by an update on Army aviation by Maj. Gen. Michael Lundy. Lundy is the commanding general of the service’s Aviation Center of Excellence and of Fort Rucker, Alabama.
