DOD to Host Static Display of Gunslinger Package for Advanced Convoy Security (GunPACS) Vehicle

                The Department of Defense will host a display of a Gunslinger Package for Advanced Convoy Security (GunPACS) outfitted vehicle on April 1. The GunPACS display will be held in the North Parking area of the Pentagon Reservation, adjacent to the Pentagon Conference Center, at 11:30 a.m. EDT.
 
                GunPACS is an integrated package of hardware and software which, when installed on a vehicle, provides enhanced situational awareness, immediate threat detection, and cooperative engagement capabilities for group and combat logistics elements. Utilizing networked data fusion, such cooperative engagement enables more accurate and effective fire to protect convoy elements. This security package highlights the department’s capacity to rapidly develop, demonstrate, and deliver capabilities to the warfighter for the current fight.
 
                GunPACS capabilities will be on display and available for photographs. Subject matter experts from the program office and its partners will be available to take queries.
 
                Media should arrive at the Pentagon North Parking Security Entrance, near the Pentagon Conference Center, no later than 11:15 a.m. with proof of affiliation and two forms of photo identification. After checking in with the Pentagon Force Protection Officers at the North Parking Entrance, please procede to the display based on their specific instructions.
