The final day of Global Force Next, the Association of the U.S. Army’s three-day virtual conference, will feature a keynote address by Gen. Ed Daly, commanding general of Army Materiel Command. 

This year’s theme is “The U.S. Army: Protecting Tomorrow Through Persistent Modernization.” Presentations throughout the event will focus on the Army’s transformation and modernization efforts and include updates from Army Futures Command’s eight cross-functional teams. 

There also will be opportunities to connect, network and learn from key industry leaders.

Day 3 of Global Force Next will begin with “Walking Point: Insights on Modernizing the Soldier and Squad,” a presentation by the Soldier Lethality Cross-Functional Team.

There also will be a panel by the Assured Positioning, Navigation and Timing Cross-Functional Team that will include a discussion on the challenges and vulnerabilities associated with GPS and how the Army is finding new and innovative ways to overcome those challenges.

Daly, the day’s keynote speaker, will speak at noon. Attendees can then participate in live content presented by industry members and sponsors, including topical discussions, product demonstrations, networking and more.

The afternoon panel is titled “Supporting Modernization,” which will look at the relationships, processes and resources essential to maintaining balance between readiness and modernization. 

Panelists also will discuss the Regionally Aligned Readiness and Modernization Model, or ReARMM, the Army’s new force generation model that will prepare soldiers for current and future missions by aligning divisions with geographic regions on predictable deployment and training rotations.

The day will again wrap up with more networking opportunities at the Global Force Next Sponsor Showcase. 

Global Force Next is being held instead of an in-person symposium in Huntsville, Alabama, because of COVID-19 health and safety concerns.
