The state motto of Massachusetts is translated from the Latin as "By the sword we seek peace, but peace only under liberty." That is a fitting motto for a great state and it could apply to the work done by the team here at Natick and throughout the Research, Development and Engineering Command.

The Army's military and civilian scientists and engineers are developing better 'swords'; that is technology which will give our Soldiers an edge in future battles.

They are doing this in the hopes that by equipping our Soldiers with the best weapons and equipment in the world, we might deter war. But failing that, that our warfighters will be victorious, and thereby able to secure a lasting peace with liberty.

Brig. Gen. William E. Cole Commanding General Natick Soldier Systems Center
