AUSA Annual: Booth 2115
October 9, 2017 - October 11, 2017
The Association of the United States Army’s Annual Meeting is the largest landpower exposition and professional development forum in North America. Taking place over three days, the Annual Meeting is designed to deliver the Army’s message by highlighting the capabilities of Army organizations and presenting a wide range of industry products and services. AUSA accomplishes this task throughout the entire event by providing informative and relevant presentations on the state of the Army, panel discussions and seminars on pertinent military and national security subjects, and a variety of valuable networking events available to all that attend.
AUSA’s Annual Meeting includes the total Army – Regular Army, guard, reserve, civilians, and family members. It is one of the three key communication platforms employed by the Army to educate and inform government, academic, civic, and veteran advocates and leadership on Army priorities and issues impacting today’s Army.
To keep making progress while still operating with constrained funding, the Army is making unit manning [unit-focused stability and home basing] the top budget priority while continuing to rein in modernization programs,” said Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark A. Miley before the Senate Armed Services Committee in 2015. Today, improving readiness continues to be a predominate theme coming from the Army Chief of Staff.
This year’s AUSA Annual 2017 theme is based around this premise of “Building Readiness.” Attendees can expect to see a great deal of products and solutions geared towards development and training, equipment modernization (both short term and long term), and future warfare.
In the ADS booth #2115 at AUSA, we’ll be exhibiting five solution areas that specifically address opportunities and/or challenges present in the Army today.
Attendee Opportunity Area
1. Prolonged Field Care: Gray Zone or hybrid conflict is a state of widespread conflict that has greater potential for low density of critical casualties dispersed across remote operating areas. In these areas, military medical support is less readily available and mechanisms of injury may be different. 
Early initiation of treatment and resuscitation improves outcomes.
Wide Range of Scalable Medical Equipment: ADS has partnered with its vast supplier network to provide a scalable and customized solution to prepare combat medics for any situation or environment. These medical kits are built around the ten essential core medical capabilities for Prolonged Field Care (PFC).
Single Source of Acquisition: ADS has developed a comprehensive solution for a current challenge facing Army Combat Medics. Proper training and medical equipment are the two focus areas of Prolonged Field Care. ADS has you covered for your medical needs as a one-point source of acquisition. Our medical supplies are readily available, Berry Compliant, and modernized to offer Minimum, Better, and Best levels of care.Visit our booth to see a wide array of medical products that fall under the ten essential core medical capabilities for PFC.
2. Expeditionary Capabilities: The Army now requires that units are trained, equipped, organized, and postured for rapid global deployment. This requires the ability to deploy to austere environments, conduct full-spectrum operations on arrival, and sustain operations until victorious. 
Maximizing Mobility for the Dynamic Battlefield: ADS has identified expeditionary camp solutions that maximize the U.S. Military’s ability to deploy, rapidly transition to operations, and function over wide areas while providing a smaller logistics footprint. Through our agile and efficient contract vehicles, customers can get expedited procurement and sustainment of essential expeditionary equipment.
Full-Scale Camp Solutions: Whether your primary mission is combat, humanitarian assistance, counterinsurgency or other, ADS provides a robust and varied set of expeditionary camp capabilities. We have the subject matter expertise to help you build readiness and achieve mission success. Visit our booth and learn through a touch screen interactive camp about our expeditionary capabilities.
3. Unmanned Systems: These systems are changing the way military, law enforcement, and first responders operate. They allow users to remain out of harm’s way during dangerous situations traditionally carried out directly by humans. Users require unmanned systems to effectively integrate with manned activity and increase their capabilities.
Constantly changing technology makes it difficult to determine which solution fits any given mission.
Multi-Domain Solutions for Air, Land, and Sea: Our subject matter experts work directly with end users to identify the optimal systems to complete their mission. We leverage our vast supplier network to offer a broad spectrum of unmanned systems—air, land, and sea.
We identify optimal contract vehicles for streamlined procurement and delivery when and where you need it.
Latest Technologies in a Wide-Array of Applications: ADS helps end users adapt to unmanned systems on land, in the air and underwater. Leverage our expertise and resources to connect with the best unmanned systems for your mission requirements.
- Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGV)
- Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS
- Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUV)
4. Operational Clothing & Individual Equipment (OCIE): Warfighters face a broad range of environmental threats on the battlefield. Operational climate temperatures can range from -10°F to 110°F. Soldier readiness can be impacted by the clothing worn and its responsiveness to harsh environmental conditions.
Versatile Clothing Systems for Every Environment: ADS provides access to the mission-critical operational clothing and individual equipment (OCIE), personal protective equipment (PPE), procurement, and support solutions you require to maintain operational readiness.
Single Source of Acquisition: Work with our team to get full systems for your entire unit—all in one kit. ADS will have on display several clothing systems:
- Cold Weather Gear
- Hot Weather Apparel
- Ski Kits
- Tactical Vests
- Accessories and more!
5. CBRNE Decontamination & Detection: The element of surprise, unseen agents, lethal devices, and the constantly changing nature of CBRNE threats make quick and continuous development of new technologies and equipment imperative.
CBRNE Defense Equipment & Training Services: Staying current with ever-changing threats and rapid advances in technologies is a challenge. That is why ADS contributes in the continuous development of new products and technologies by partnering with industry-leading manufacturers and suppliers of CBRNE defense equipment and training services.
Leverage ADS’ CBRNE Procurement Channels: As the prime vendor on multiple CBRNE IDIQ contracts, ADS has experience in providing CBRNE products and support solutions for the U.S. Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security. Work with ADS and be the first line of defense against weapons of mass destruction.
