MISSION

Provide innovative research, development and engineering to produce capabilities that provide decisive overmatch to the Army against the complexities of the current and future operating environments in support of the joint warfighter and the nation.

VISION

To be the Army's enabling command in the development and delivery of capabilities that unburden, empower, and protect the Warfighter.

INTENT

The U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command is the Army's technology leader and largest technology developer. CCDC ensures the dominance of Army capabilities by creating, integrating and delivering technology-enabled solutions to our Soldiers.

To meet this commitment to the Army, CCDC develops technologies in its eight major laboratories and research, development, engineering and analysis centers. It also integrates technologies developed in partnership with an extensive network of academic, industry, and international partners.

CCDC provides the Army with an organic research and development capability. More than 13,700 Soldiers, civilian employees and direct contractors form this world-class team. As part of that team, there are more than 10,000 engineers and scientists, many of whom are the Army's leading experts in their fields. The fundamental characteristic of the CCDC 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, CCDC stands at the forefront of what the Soldier eats, wears, fires, flies or drives.

CCDC is a major subordinate command of the U.S. Army Futures Command, which assesses and integrates the future operational environment, emerging threats, and technologies to develop and deliver concepts, requirements, future force designs and the delivery of modernization solutions.
