VICENZA, Italy – As worldwide technologies are constantly changing and updating, the U.S. Army does its part to keep up with these changes. What some may not know is the Army has a tool that gives commands access to these new technologies or helps them create something entirely new.
Hassan Azzam, science and technology advisor for U.S. Army Africa (USARAF), has served as an Army civilian for the past 15 years with the Research, Development and Engineering Command (RDECOM).
Azzam’s key role is to provide commanders immediate access to labs and centers in RDECOM; cover capabilities and material gaps; help different combatant commands demonstrate rapid solutions to improve performance, readiness, safety, training and cost savings; and serve as a communications link on technology issues between Soldiers and the materiel development community.
