About Us

Knowing Soldier's Challenges. Delivering Solutions.


Commanded by Brig. Gen. Christopher Schneider, PEO Soldier delivers 130 programs of record and 253 products and non-programs of record, such as essential capabilities from body armor, helmets, sensors and lasers to legacy weapons systems. PEO Soldier has four Project Manager (PM) Offices and one Project Director. They are: Project Manager Soldier Lethality, Project Manager Soldier Survivability, Program Manager Soldier Warrior, and Assistant Program Executive Officer.

PEO Soldier is committed to delivering capabilities that enhance combat overmatch against near peer threats. To do this, PEO Soldier has launched the Adaptive Squad Architecture (ASA) to create a squad architecture that enables the rapid but deliberate delivery of integrated capabilities to the force, initially focused on the close combat formations, to ensure a lethal overmatch against current and future threats. It will also provide a single, authoritative technical database of all squad equipment and assist in analyzing, defining and maintaining interfaces, which will make it possible to manage the squad as an integrated platform. By taking a systems approach to Soldier load, PEO Soldier will be able to allocate size, weight and power across the subcomponents to further optimize mobility, effectiveness and ultimately, lethality.
