“The defense community is consistently seeking technology solutions to enhance on-mission security while also cutting spending back home,” said Major General (Ret.) Scott Custer, USAF, President and CEO of SCHOTT Defense. “At SCHOTT Defense, we place the safety and effectiveness of Soldiers first while reducing redundancy and minimizing life cycle costs for the defense community. The AUSA Exhibition is a prime opportunity for us to demonstrate the innovations and improvements we’re developing to better equip the warfighter and supply downstream contractors in the defense industry with more high-quality and high-value components, materials, and technologies.”
