US Army Digital Engineering Directive

The US Army is focusing on several major programs as part of its push to digitally transform military systems.

A memo signed by Army Undersecretary Gabe Camarillo specifies six pathfinder programs that will be used to showcase digital engineering implementations.

They are:
– The XM-30 Mechanized Infantry Combat Vehicle
– The Future Long-Range Assault Aircraft
– Integrated Fires Mission Command
– The Joint Targeting Integrated Command and Control Suite
– The M113 Armored Personnel Carrier, a ground vehicle program whose digital twins apply broadly to the ground vehicle fleet
– The Program Executive Logistics Data Analysis Lab.

The new digital engineering policy favors detailed digital models as the primary method of communication over traditional documents in systems engineering.
