Strike Challenge 2022 provides a platform for hands-on evaluation of defense industry products & technologies, designed to provide our warfighters and first responders with tools they need to complete any mission.
Equipage involving response and recovery during Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear (CBRN), manmade & natural disaster events will be on-hand.
Participants will have the opportunity to participate with demonstration on products that will allow the detection, identification, decontamination, and protection while operating in contaminated environment. Use of surface mobility platforms (ground & water) will provide the participants with various methods to transport personnel into the scene, extraction of first responders and victims in austere environments through both land and maritime environments.
Command, control, and sustainment is essential during the response and recovery phases of disaster events. Participants will be able to view and assess traditional and non-traditional equipage unique to responders within common operating picture, such as minimized infrastructure. Aspects include remote power generation/restoration, critical communications, SAR & Security team extended sustainment, human survival condition, and other related capabilities to enhance and multiply first response.
The innovative tactical systems to be on hand during Strike Challenge share common utility with Special Operations components. These shared applications allow for parallel evaluation of the equipage from the unique perspective of the special operator.
NOTE: There are no implied or expected government acquisitions at Strike Challenge.
