With Army Futures Command achieving full capability, the branch is fully researching the cutting edge. As the Army’s acquisition priorities align very well with their modernization priorities. Bruce Jette, assistant secretary for Acquisition, Logistics & Technology at the U.S. Army, says that while the big six are important, they need to work on the supporting elements as well.
“General Murray and I sit together as co-chairs in EE PEG, which is the funding PEG for new materiel development. In that case we do look at not just that main avenue, but also the supporting avenues.” Jette said. “Having a brand new next generation combat vehicle is great. It’s a main attack. But if you don’t have fuel trucks, it’s not gonna work. So we’ve got a lot of these other supporting elements. we’re just making sure they’re scaled correctly.”
