MEDIA ADVISORY

Beacon Hill display to showcase Soldier technology

NATICK, Mass. – The U.S. Army Soldier Systems Center (SSC), locally known as Natick Labs, is heading to Beacon Hill to show the Commonwealth’s elected officials some of the technologies and products developed in Massachusetts that sustain and protect America’s servicemen and women.

The Natick team will be joined by their key partner, the Program Executive Office Soldier (PEO Soldier), Fort Belvoir, Va., for this event.

The July 10 event is open to the media and the public as well, and will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Great Hall at the Massachusetts State House in Boston.

Throughout the event, the teams from the SSC and the PEO Soldier will have subject matter experts available for discussion and one-on-one interviews.

Displays will showcase Warfighter equipment -- present and future – most of which originates from or is developed in the Commonwealth. Natick’s focus is in the areas of food, clothing, shelters, and airdrop technologies, all of which will be featured at this event.  The PEO Soldier team is responsible for designing, developing, procuring, fielding, and sustaining virtually everything the Soldier wears or carries.

State Senator Karen Spilka (D – Ashland) and Brig. Gen. R. Mark Brown, commanding general of the SSC in Natick and the Program Executive Officer Soldier (PEO Soldier) at Fort Belvoir, Va., will host this event. Other state representatives sponsoring this event include: Senator Scott Brown and Representatives David Linsky and Alice Peisch.
