Fort Campbell Soldiers partner with Vanderbilt University to create a new model for innovation

 

U.S. Army Acquisition Support CenterNashville, TN – GPS, duct tape, microwaves and computers—these everyday items have one thing in common: Each was invented, in part or in whole, as the result of U.S. military research. The military’s rich history of innovation continues today, at numerous labs and engineering centers and focused on high-level problems.

There is a gap, however: There are myriad problems at the warfighter level that Army labs never encounter. Fort Campbell soldiers from the 3rd Brigade Combat Team (BCT) of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) and researchers from Vanderbilt University are addressing this issue head-on, and are building a partnership to identify and solve tactical problems with Soldier-inspired solutions.
