Abstract : The Army Armament, Munitions, and Chemical Command (AMCCOM) was a major subordinate command of the Army Materiel Command (AMC). AMCCOM's mission was to 'exercise life cycle management over the accomplishment of total research, development, engineering, product assurance, integrated logistic support, industrial preparedness, procurement, production, security assistance, and materiel readiness for assigned systems/materiel.' It executed assigned missions in support of other AMC, Department of the Army (DA), and/or Department of Defense (DOD) elements having centralized management responsibility for weapon systems or items. In addition, AMCCOM executed the mission of single manager for conventional ammunition for the DOD, and exercised centralized management authority over the munitions production base modernization and expansion program. The command maintained a technological base for the development, procurement, production, and life cycle support of assigned materiel, and commanded and controlled its assigned centers, activities, and installations. This is an annual historical perspective.
