The U.S. and U.K. governments have agreed to support each other's ground forces through the development of technologies that address common challenges.

The partnership will focus on efforts to develop digital infrastructure, long-range precision fire, soldier lethality, future vertical lift and positioning, navigation and timing technologies, the U.K. said Tuesday.

Ryan McCarthy, U.S. Army secretary and 2020 Wash100 Award recipient, and James Heappey, U.K. armed forces minister, signed the agreement.

"This partnership allows costly and complex problems to be distributed and helps protect the industrial base through enabling faster innovation and cost-sharing towards achieving our modernization priorities," McCarthy said.
