Program Executive Office (PEO) Soldier was created by the Army with one primary purpose: to develop the best equipment and field it as quickly as possible so that our Soldiers remain second to none in missions that span the full spectrum of military operations.
As recent operations in Iraq and Afghanistan have vividly demonstrated, getting the right equipment to our military men and women in an expeditious manner is absolutely critical.
This video depicts Soldiers of the 75th Ranger Regiment jumping the T-11 Advanced Tactical Parachute System at Fort Benning, Ga. Slated to replace the 50-year-old T-10 system, the T-11 addresses new environmental realities for Soldiers. With a canopy that is 28 percent larger that the T-10’s, the T-11 has a 49 percent slower rate of descent and increases the safety level for Soldiers, who are on average heavier and carry more equipment than their predecessors of 50 years ago.
By viewing the Soldier as part of an integrated system, PEO Soldier ensures that the Soldier and everything he or she wears or carries works together as an integrated system. The result is an overall systematic design that benefits Soldiers by enhancing their ability to accomplish individual and collective tasks, improving quality of life, building confidence, and saving lives. In this respect, PEO Soldier is at the vanguard of Army transformation.
Headquartered at Fort Belvoir, Virginia, PEO Soldier designs, develops, procures, fields, and sustains virtually everything the Soldier wears or carries. By employing innovative concepts and technologies, PEO Soldier has made great strides in quickly getting improved equipment into the hands of Soldiers when and where they need it.
