Army looks to replace the Squad Automatic Weapon| ArmyTimes

The Army is looking for a replacement for its Squad Automatic Weapon.
Army officials posted the special notice on the Federal Business Opportunities website on May 31, seeking contractor submissions for a classified industry days event on July 25-27 at the Maneuver Center of Excellence at Fort Benning, Georgia.
Dubbed the “Next Generation Squad Automatic Rifle,” the new rifle would replace the M249 SAW in brigade combat teams, according to the website.
“It will combine the firepower and range of a machine gun with the precision and ergonomics of a carbine, yielding capability improvements in accuracy, range and lethality,” according to the website.
