This is the 8th annual Ground Vehicle Systems Engineering and Technology Symposium (GVSETS) and the Advanced Planning Briefings for Industry (ABPI). GVSETS and APBI is the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) Michigan Chapter’s key industry-government-academia event.

This three-day event brings more than 1,000 executives, program managers, engineers, and other key decision-makers together to discuss initiatives, programs, plans, and technologies in the ground domain for both manned and unmanned systems. This is a unique opportunity for our community to come together to chart the course and contribute to the future success of our nation’s War fighters.

GVSETS brings together leaders from the Army staff; Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC); Research, Development and Engineering Command (RDECOM), Program Executive Offices (PEOs) for Army and United States Marine Corps (USMC) ground system portfolios; as well as industry and academia leaders.

Day three will be focused on 5 main categories that will be presented in 5 parallel technical sessions. Sessions topics include:

  • Autonomous Ground Systems (AGS)
  • Modeling & Simulation, Testing & Validation (MSTV)
  • Power and Mobility (P&M)
  • Systems Engineering (SE)
  • Vehicle Electronics and Architecture (VEA)
