For the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command, defending the high ground begins in research laboratories where engineers and scientists work on cutting-edge technology.

Employees of USASMDC’s Technical Center develop new technologies that enable warfighter dominance. Their efforts include science and technology and research and development in the fields of directed energy, high energy lasers, space, hypersonics, integrated air and missile defense, high altitude and related areas.

These research and development teams are led by Thomas Webber, Technical Center director. Webber said the Technical Center plays an important role because modernization and innovation are vital to the Army, especially in terms of combat scenarios.

“The Technical Center is focused each day on innovating and transforming the future Army through revolutionary research, development, test and evaluation,” Webber said. “The team’s work is absolutely critical to developing the best technologies for our warfighters. Through their hard work and dedication to the mission, every day, we have developed new state-of-the-art technologies that will change the way we fight and win wars.”
