Texas A&M System Shows Off Ways It Can Help Army Futures Command

Chancellor John Sharp: We will do everything we can to fulfill that mission.
COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Students, researchers and professors from The Texas A&M University System – including those at the flagship campus in College Station and at the nearby 2,000-acre RELLIS campus – recently showcased a wide range of work and projects that could help the U.S. military in its quest for modernization.
Charles W. Schwartz, the chairman of the Board of Regents of the Texas A&M University System, said System officials wanted to allow U.S. Army General John M. “Mike” Murray and members of his staff at the Army Futures Command “to see firsthand what Texas A&M University and The Texas A&M University System can offer him.”
A recent three-day trip to Aggieland by General Murray marked one of his first stops outside of Austin since the Army Futures Command opened its headquarters in the Texas capital city in August.

At a press event, General Murray told reporters that the Army Futures Command is focused on making sure soldiers will have new equipment, improved tactics and the operational schemes necessary to remain dominant on the battlefields of the future.
“Although we are based in Austin, we are on a countrywide search for the best talent and best ideas we can find,” the four-star general said. “So we are thrilled with any partnership we can build. We are thrilled with whatever we can contribute to the work that goes on down here at Texas A&M or throughout the entire System.”
Some of the work highlighted by Texas A&M officials and members of seven state agencies within the Texas A&M System included: research on hypersonic travel; developments with unmanned aerial vehicles; advanced communications systems; and the latest search and rescue capabilities.
The Texas A&M System takes service to country very seriously, Chancellor John Sharp said during General Murray’s visit.
“We are mission-driven. It is not about us,” Chancellor Sharp told General Murray. “There isn’t a question you can ask us that the answer is not ‘yes.’ We will do everything we can to fulfill that mission.”
