"The opportunity to have your team interface with the US Army weapon systems at the Live Fire Demo with the products they create and mate with is invaluable. Many teams design in a vacuum. At FFC’s Live Fire Demo they have the chance to see how these systems work in real world scenarios and see how the competitors accomplish similar objectives."
