About This Meeting

At Thursday’s Detroit Economic Club meeting, General John Murray, Commanding General of the U.S. Army Futures Command, described how the Army seeks partnerships to identify innovative solutions to complex problems facing the defense industry.

Partnerships with universities, entrepreneurs and small businesses as part of modernizing the Army was not a priority during the past decade, but today it is vital to the military as well as across public and private sectors.

“Although the Army has some really intelligent engineers and scientists, we don’t have all of them and we don’t have all the good ideas. We are working on figuring out a way to interact with people who fundamentally think differently about problems or how to solve these problems uniquely.”
