Tank Automotive Research, Development
& Engineering Center (TARDEC)
Who We Are
Headquartered in the heart of the automotive industry at the Detroit Arsenal in
Warren, Michigan, the Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering
Center (TARDEC) is the nation's laboratory for advanced military automotive
technology. TARDEC's mission is to research, develop, engineer, leverage and
provide advanced systems integration of technology into both ground systems and
their support equipment throughout the life cycle.
What We Do
* Using state-of-the-art technology including one of the Department of Defense's
(DoD) largest high performance computing centers, virtual battlefield simulators,
customer driven virtual prototyping and motion based simulators, TARDEC is at the
forefront of the Army's transformation creating solutions to challenges in water
purification, alternative fuel technology, hybrid power systems, mobility engineering
and logistical science while working with industry to engineer the Army's future
* While TARDEC is committed to sustaining the Legacy and Interim Forces, we are
spearheading Future Combat System vehicle development. Using technology such
as advanced collaborative environments and computer based modeling and
simulation tools TARDEC researchers are designing the Army's next generation of
tactical trucks, reducing vehicle crew size, integrating unmanned ground vehicles
into combat systems and enhancing vehicle survivability features.
* TARDEC has a strong relationship with the private sector, especially the
automobile industry. To act as a conduit between the Army, industry, academia and
other federal agencies, in 1992 DOD founded TARDEC's National Automotive
Center (NAC). Currently, the NAC collaborates to develop technologies that are
beneficial to all parties-ensuring that soldiers quickly receive the best possible
* TARDEC puts the best equipment in our warfighters' hands, while leading the
Army's transformation goal for a lighter, more lethal and more survivable force. As
the Army prepares to confront the future, TARDEC will be there-developing,
upgrading and maintaining war material-just as it has for more than half a
