Alabama-based company will give updates on three of its major priority programs for the U.S. Army

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., March 21, 2022 - Dynetics, a wholly owned subsidiary of Leidos, invites the media to a roundtable discussion focused on the integrated systems for the modern-day battlefield.

Program managers from the Directed Energy, Hypersonic Technologies and Enduring Shield programs will discuss their U.S. Army and U.S. Navy customers' modernization priorities and also take questions from media members.

A brief overview of the programs:

The Dynetics directed energy solution focuses on a non-kinetic prototype system using a 300 kW-class laser that will be demonstrated in FY22 and prepared for residual combat capability by 2024.

The company plays a significant role in hypersonic technologies and is currently building glide body prototype systems and will deliver the capability to soldiers by 2023.

Both the directed energy and hypersonics programs are managed by the U.S. Army Rapid Capabilities and Critical Technologies Office.

The Enduring Shield program, awarded by the U.S. Army Program Executive Office Missiles and Space, is a ground-based, mobile system that will be used to combat cruise missiles and unmanned aircraft systems. Dynetics is set to deliver four units in 2022 and 12 units by the end of 2023.
