Abstract : Today, the Army recognizes more than ever the imperative to retain technological superiority as it continues to restructure into a smaller Force Projection Army of the 21st Century. The establishment of the Battle Laboratories and the Louisiana Maneuvers (LAM) Task Force is a critical step towards achieving this goal. Together with the Army Research, Development, and Acquisition community, the Battle Labs and LAM Task Force strive to streamline materiel acquisition and provide warfighters with overmatch capabilities. The Army's Advanced Concepts and Technology II (ACT II) Program provides access for industry participation in this important endeavor. ACT II facilitates Battle Lab experimentation by competitively funding industry's advanced technologies, prototypes, and non-developmental items having greatest potential to fulfill warfighting capability requirements. In Fiscal Year 1994, its inaugural year, the ACT II Program funded the top twenty-eight projects highlighted in this brochure.
