MISSION
Empower, unburden and protect the Warfighter through integrated research, development and engineering solutions.

VISION
The U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command will be the Army's go-to organization for unsurpassed scientific and engineering expertise that defines the space between the state of the art and the art of the possible and will deliver innovative technology solutions enabling the Army to serve as the nation's force of decisive action and ensuring the United States maintains global battlefield dominance.

INTENT
The U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command is the Army's technology leader and largest technology developer. RDECOM ensures the dominance of Army capabilities by creating, integrating and delivering technology-enabled solutions to our Soldiers. To meet this commitment to the Army, RDECOM develops technologies in its eight major laboratories and research, development and engineering centers. It also integrates technologies developed in partnership with an extensive network of academic, industry, and international partners.

RDECOM provides the Army with an organic research and development capability. More than 17,000 Soldiers, civilian employees and direct contractors form this world-class team. As part of that team, there are 11,000 engineers and scientists, many of whom are the Army's leading experts in their fields. A fundamental characteristic of this workforce is the focus on the Soldier. Whether providing technology solutions to meet current operational needs or developing break-through technologies for the next generation, RDECOM stands at the forefront of what the Soldier eats, wears, fires, flies or drives.
