MARINE CORPS BASE QUANTICO, Va. -- Marine Corps Systems Command will support the Modern Day Marine Military Exposition Sept. 25-27, aboard Marine Corps Base Quantico.

The annual event showcases the latest innovations in military equipment and systems, designed specifically to address the evolving, expeditionary needs of the Marine Corps. During the three-day event, members of industry, military leaders and Marines will have the opportunity to interact with MCSC, and experience some of the systems and technology used by Marines in the fleet.

Sponsored by the Marine Corps League, the event is intended to nurture the intellectual energy and creativity that will enable the Corps to lead tactical and operational innovation. This year’s theme, “Modern Day Warfighter: Ready, Lethal, Adaptable,” stresses the importance of giving commanders more integrated Navy-Marine Corps capabilities, while providing Marines at the tactical edge with modern equipment on the battlefield.

“Every year, Modern Day Marine provides the unique opportunity for Marines and military decision makers to enhance our relationships with industry,” said Brig. Gen. A.J. Pasagian, MCSC commander. “It is all about forming connections to ensure we place the most capable weapons, ground and information technology systems into the hands of our warfighters to increase lethality.”

On Sept. 25, MCSC will host a Planning Brief to Industry, and MCSC’s Office of Small Business Programs will conduct a small business training session. There will also be opportunities for exhibitors to meet with key personnel from the command Sept. 26-27.

MCSC will provide interactive displays at the expo to boost visibility for the command and its system capabilities to key decision makers and industry leaders.

The event will also give attendees an interactive experience with vehicles, weapons systems and other technologies used by Marines. Some of these items include:

Additive Manufacturing
Identity Dominance System-Marine Corps
Ground Radios
Indoor Simulated Marksmanship Trainer III
