United States Military Academy (USMA)

It is an honor to participate again in the Warfighting Innovation in Science and Engineering Challenge!  We are proud of the research and projects that our Cadets undertake each year to address important issues facing the Army and the Nation. Our teams are excited and honored to represent West Point on this much larger stage in front of senior leaders from across the Department of Defense. Here at West Point, 14 teams volunteered to compete and began the journey toward the WISE Challenge finals.  The three West Point teams that you will see in the finals excelled during multiple internal competitions.  I am personally excited to see all of the projects that each Academy will present.  Thank you to Mr. Douglas Tamilio and his team at DEVCOM Soldier Center for hosting this event. And thank you to the West Point faculty and staff that educates and inspires our Cadets to seek out solutions to these significant problems. Best wishes to all of the Teams and Go Army!
