PICATINNY ARSENAL, N.J. (May 8, 2014) -- The U.S. Army Armament Research Development and Engineering Center recently hosted senior leaders, scientists and engineers from the U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center from Detroit Arsenal, Mich., as part of a three day Home-on-Home collaboration initiative.

The Home-on-Home program promotes the exchange of ideas regarding emerging technologies and capabilities in support of the Warfighter.

ARDEC and TARDEC are part of the U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command, which has the mission to develop technology and engineering solutions for America's Soldiers.

The Research, Development and Engineering Command is a major subordinate command of the U.S. Army Materiel Command. AMC is the Army's premier provider of materiel readiness -- technology, acquisition support, materiel development, logistics power projection, and sustainment -- to the total force, across the spectrum of joint military operations. If a Soldier shoots it, drives it, flies it, wears it, eats it or communicates with it, AMC provides it.
