Light Armored Vehicle (LAV) Obsolescence Program:
The Land Systems team will be available to discuss LAV upgrades to the power pack, transmission, driveline system, driver’s instrument panel and turret slip ring.
These enhancements are designed to extend the service life of the LAV into the 2030s.
Multi-Utility Tactical Transport (MUTT):
The robotic 8×8 MUTT will be on display.
The expanding robotic product line from Land Systems includes 8×8 and 6×6 wheeled versions of the MUTT, as well as the Weaponized MUTT.

The MUTT has proved to be a rugged, reliable, V-22 transportable, small-unit force multiplier that provides increased persistence and protection and projection of combat power for land forces.
In addition, Land Systems will have representatives available to discuss the M1A1 Abrams Main Battle Tank program, Cougar Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected (MRAP) vehicles and its other line of products and services from around the globe.

Common Aviation Command and Control System (CAC2S):
The CAC2S demonstration will feature a real-time fused air picture with aviation tracks from radar sensors.
The advanced Multi-Source Correlator Tracker display provides shared situational awareness across the air space.
This demonstration will be networked on a tactical LTE network so that the air picture from the notional command center can be shared with a tablet and will feature two firsts for CAC2S, which recently received a $105 million full-rate production decision from the U.S. Marine Corps:
- Real-time air/ground common operating picture
- Air/ground common operating picture distributed to a tablet from the control agency.
CrossingGuard™ XD is a low Size, Weight and Power (SwaP), trusted cross-domain access and transfer solution that is ideal for tactical platforms and sensors with which SWaP constraints are prevalent.
Built on COTS open standards, CrossingGuard XD is a software-based virtual guard designed for tactical mission environments that require cross-domain processing at the mobile edge.
Sectéra® vIPer™ Universal Secure Phone is the only NSA-certified Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phone that protects information classified Top Secret/SCI and below over commercial wired networks and is the ideal replacement for outdated Secure Terminal Equipment (STE).

- This modern phone allows users to easily switch between making end-to-end secure and non-secure calls on VoIP and analog networks, eliminating the need for multiple desktop phones.
- The recently released vIPer phone now includes an embedded fiber interface that allows customers to take advantage of the benefits of modern fiber infrastructures, such as greater speed, distance, reliability, security and cost savings.
TACDS™ is a ruggedized, tactical cross-domain solution (CDS) certified by the NSA that provides much-needed capability and can be found on a variety of armored and ISR platforms operating at the tactical edge.
- And to meet the demanding SWaP needs of dismounted military personnel, it is available in a smaller form factor that weighs just 8 ounces.
TACLANE®, the world’s most widely deployed Type 1 encryptor, continues to provide high-speed interoperable solutions to protect networks and information against evolving cyber threats.
The ability to share information across multiple security domains while in the battlefield gives dismounted warfighters access to more information than ever before.
With Trusted Embedded Environment (TEE), warfighters in tactical situations can access and transfer information from multiple security levels, enhancing their situational awareness, safety and mission success.
Trusted Network Environment (TNE) is a cyber edge solution in use by the U.S. Department of Defense and federal agencies.
