The nature of warfare is changing in the 21st Century. Government Defense departments face significant challenges to ensure that ongoing operations are supported with appropriate equipment while meeting budget constraints.

The new combat environment is demanding new strategies for Defense vehicles, with increased personnel protection against a wider range of threats, suitable for rapid deployment in rough terrain areas. This demand for new capability is offset by the increasing complexity and cost of battlefield technology and constant government focus on military spending.

RSC recognizes the inherent challenges of rapidly developing the required new vehicle and application families, while managing dual pressures from the military end-users and the government.
