TARDEC scientists, engineers and researchers are the heart of a global ground systems science, technology and engineering integration network that keeps our military the best-equipped and most advanced fighting force in the world.

Our associates are essential to what we do as an organization, and we set high expectations for ourselves in order to be a preferred provider, valued partner and conduit to the greater research and development capabilities within the Army. When customers come to TARDEC for solutions, they can be assured that we have the knowledge, skills and, what I call "bloody knuckle" experience, to complete their work on time, within budget and with better quality than they could find anywhere else.

We're excited about our mission. We're excited about serving our customers' needs. We're excited about providing our military with the best, most technically advanced capabilities in the world, even in today's fiscally constrained environment. After all, the whole is always greater than the sum of its parts, and this community will not be deterred from providing its Soldiers and Marines with ground systems overmatch capabilities to fight and win today while preparing for tomorrow's challenges.

Paul D. Rogers, Ph.D.
TARDEC Director
