The Texas A&M University System’s RELLIS Campus is the site of the comprehensive George H.W. Bush Combat Development Complex (BCDC) – a comprehensive ecosystem unlike any other in the nation. The U.S. Army Futures Command will use the RELLIS Campus in Bryan, Texas, as its central hub where the newest and most innovative ideas for modernizing the Army are tested and evaluated. The aim is to shorten the time it takes to get emerging technologies from the lab to the field and maximize technology capabilities through soldier and stakeholder feedback.
Conduct research, development, test and evaluation of critical national security technologies with world-class researchers and partners using relevant state-of-the-art laboratory and testing facilities.
Accelerate the development, integration, and transfer of technology to advance United States defense and security capabilities in critical technology areas. We will operate with an agile mindset to help our partners deliver new capabilities for the nation.
The BCDC is a living laboratory to address some of the Army’s most pressing challenges. Through its partnership, the Texas A&M University System and Army Futures Command will be able to quickly evaluate prototypes that can be tested by soldiers in a real-world environment at this unique campus.
