The 2012 Joint Armaments Conference for Small Arms, Gun and Missile, and Unconventional and Emerging Armament (U&EA) Systems, presented by National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) was held at the Washington State Convention Center on Seattle, Washington from May 14-17, 2012.
The 2012 conference was the first to highlight the Unconventional and Emerging Armament sessions. The Unconventional and Emerging Armaments (U&EA) Committee is an important addition to the Armaments Division. This committee is focused on emerging systems, technologies and supporting related capability presentations that utilize target defeat mechanisms or are enabled by capabilities to defeat, disable, or disrupt the threat.
General Dynamics unveiled the next-generation Lightweight Medium Machine Gun (LWMMG) at the conference, too!
