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, Project Manager Soldier Maneuver and Precision Targeting, Program Manager Integrated Visual Augmentation System (IVAS), and Project Director Soldier and Squad Integration.
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.
Rapidly deliver agile/adaptive, leading edge Soldier capabilities in order to provide combat overmatch today and be more lethal tomorrow.
Be the world's premier capability provider for the Integrated Soldier and Squad weapons platform.
PEO Soldier's success in understanding and influencing business and government is largely due to the combinded experience and achievements of our leadership team. The quality of the systems we develop and the continual technological advancement of the products we deliver uphold the integrity of PEO Soldier's mission.
