Description

The Natick Soldier Center (NSC) is located at the U.S. Army Soldier Systems Center in Natick, Mass., under the Army's Research, Development and Engineering Command (RDECOM). We have the dedicated mission to maximize the soldier's survivability, sustainability, mobility, combat effectiveness and quality of life by treating the soldier as a system. Situated near the nation's birthplace of the Army, NSC is the birthplace of the soldier as a system concept. From its early manifestation in the Soldier Integrated Protective Ensemble (SIPE) Advanced Technology Demonstration (ATD), through transition to the PM managed Land Warrior (LW) program, to the current Future Force Warrior (FFW) ATD supporting the Army's transformation to the Future Force. NSC's focus has always been on the soldier. We accomplish our mission through basic and applied research, technology development and demonstration, and engineering of combat clothing and individual equipment, rations and food service equipment, airdrop systems, shelters, and organizational equipment. We also integrate and transition the technologies for combat-essential elements of command and control, survivability, lethality, sustainability and mobility into the soldier system and warrior systems for other services and agencies. We are in direct support of the Army's S&T vision, strategy, and Transformation Objectives. Our vision is to be the recognized center of choice for individual warrior-related technologies and warrior systems, and internationally known as a preeminent provider of research, development, engineering and integration services.

Mission

  • Manage the development, integration and experimentation of all technology aspects of the Joint Army, USMC, Military Operations in Urban Terrain ACTD and Pathfinder ACTD.
  • Ensure that the Science & Technology Program addresses the soldiers' needs, and supports the Army's S&T vision, strategy, and Transformation Objectives.
  • Advance and transition modular and reconfigurable soldier system technologies that will benefit and serve the next generation warfighter's operational capabilities.
  • Serve as a focal point among emergency response professionals, military personnel and civilians in high-risk occupations for exchange of information regarding protective clothing and individual equipment materials, systems and testing.
