15th Annual Ground Vehicle Systems Engineering & Technology Symposium and Modernization Update

Meeting the Army’s Transformational Needs

GVSETS & Modernization Update provides the opportunity to personally network and share technical research to approximately 1,800 attendees.

Scientists and engineers from government, academia and industry are invited to submit papers for the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) Michigan Chapter’s 15th Annual GVSETS & Modernization Update, in coordination with The Engineering Society of Detroit (ESD).

NDIA is dedicated to enhancing warfighter capabilities. Technology solutions that bring operational capabilities can be developed by academia, industry, government, or a collaboration. Solving the capability gaps for our warfighter is growing in scope and challenge. Therefore, the focus of the 2023 Ground Vehicle Systems Engineering Technology Symposium (GVSETS) is partnering with industry, government, and academia to meet the Army's transformational needs.
