The US Army's Rapid Capabilities and Critical Technologies Office (RCCTO) is on the hunt for an array of emerging technologies, including surveillance drones and systems that can down them, and is calling on industry to pitch their ideas for an upcoming innovation day.

In a late-July notice posted on the Federal Business Opportunities website, the service announced it would hold its first RCCTO 'innovation day' on 17 September to "quickly target and acquire promising new technology".

"We face an ever more lethal and disruptive battlefield, combined across all domains, and conducted at increasing speed and reach-from close combat, throughout overseas theaters, and reaching to our homeland, which requires us to quickly acquire innovative capabilities to prototype and to deliver to the warfighter," the army wrote.
