Rick Walsh, Program Manager of U.S. Army Mobile (G6), discusses how new technologies are helping to improve mobility for soldiers and civilians, and how working with industry has helped problem-solving at the service.


The Army is teaming up with an unlikely industry partner in its quest to improve mobility for the soldier. The Army’s research unit is working with Uber to develop a new rotor design for use in aircraft. However, that’s not the only technology team-up going on in the Army. Rick Walsh, Program Manager of U.S. Army Mobile (G6) says that they’re looking at new spaces to improve troop mobility.   “We do like the smartphone technology, we have a great many of those devices in play, but we also look at moving towards IoT or the sensor space. We have condition-based maintenance sensors in cars… we are trying to provide the ability for the soldier or the civilian to do their job outside the traditional office,” said Walsh.
