WARRIOR EXPO EAST: JULY 11-12, 2013
VIRGINIA BEACH CONVENTION CENTER, VIRGINIA BEACH, VA
The TCCC program was originally developed by Special Operations to customize the principles of good trauma care for successful use on the battlefield. Over the past decade, TCCC has expanded from SOF into the conventional military population and is now considered the standard of care for pre-hospital trauma care on the battlefield. Recent U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command surveys of Soldiers in combat units found that TCCC is the second most valued element of their training, exceeded only by training in the use of their individual weapon.
TCCC is constantly evolving; this breakout session will discuss new developments and recommendations to the TCCC guidelines.
Today’s military missions require large and growing amounts of energy with supply lines that can be costly, vulnerable to disruption, and a burden on Warfighters. In accordance with the DOD’s Operational Energy Strategy, the department must improve its ability to measure operational energy consumption, reduce demand, and increase the efficiency of energy use to enhance combat effectiveness. Introducing and utilizing efficient sources of energy will drastically reduce fuel consumption and the physical risk to the Warfighter – ultimately allowing energy consumption in the military to become lighter, faster, and cleaner.
This breakout session explores alternative energy sources as well as energy efficient products and procedures for the future Warfighter. Topics include capability enhancement, waste mitigation and cost reduction for individual soldier power systems and expeditionary energy support.
Corrosion negatively affects all military assets, including vehicles, equipment, and infrastructure. Corrosion also affects military readiness by taking critical systems out of action threatening our nation’s Warfighters personal safety. In 2012, the Department of Defense (DOD) estimated that the cost of corrosion exceeded $20 billion annually.
This breakout session explores cost effective, field-proven solutions that prevent and control corrosion and can assist with defense system maintenance and sustainment in response to budgetary constraints.
The U.S. Army has developed a new approach to deploy networked capabilities that are integrated from the Tactical Operations Center (TOC) to the Soldier, and are fielded in accordance with Army Force Generation (ARFORGEN) requirements. Through a process known as Capability Set Management, the Army has adapted acquisition practices and is aligning programs that ensure operational units receive better capabilities more quickly through integrated and sustainable network Capability Sets.
The first Capability Set – Capability Set 13 (CS 13) – began fielding in 2012. CS 13 is the first fully-integrated suite of network components that delivers an unprecedented integrated network solution. CS 13 is capable of supporting mission command requirements for the full range of Army operations and an integrated voice and data capability throughout the entire BCT formation.
This breakout session covers CS 13 and the next generation of tactical communications designed to give commanders and Warfighters vastly increased abilities to communicate and share information. Significant capability enhancements include access to network capabilities found in the TOC while mounted in combat vehicles, delivering the Network to individual Soldiers at the squad level, and much more.
Preventable accidents cost the DOD billions of dollars each year and threaten the safety of our nation’s most valuable assets – the Sailors, Soldiers, Airman, and Marines operating at home and in theater. Whether operating tactical vehicles or heavy equipment, working on flight lines, maintenance depots, or FOBs, maintaining personnel safety is a critical area of focus for the government.
From fall, trip, and electrocution hazards to improperly chocked vehicles, flight line safety, and cable/hose management, this breakout session highlights the latest equipment solutions available for maintaining a safe operation environment.
ADS offers a broad spectrum of contracts for U.S. Government and Military acquisition. Our ability to provide a diverse selection of procurement options allows us to streamline purchasing and make acquisition as efficient as possible for our customers.
From Government Wide Acquisition Contracts (GWAC) like the DLA Tailored Logistics programs, GSA, DOD Emall, and DAPA, to service specific procurement vehicles like SeaPort-e and SPAWAR MAC contracts, this informative breakout session will provide information about the myriad of contracting vehicles available to DOD and Federal customers. Presentations will include a brief overview of long term buying contracts available to Military and Federal customers through ADS and a Q&A session to discuss specific procurement needs.
