WASHINGTON — The Army said it’s considering 15 cities, including Denver, for the headquarters of its planned Futures Command, which will keep track of emerging technology and innovations that could be used in warfighting.
The Army notified the cities this week and asked for detailed information.
The other contenders are Atlanta; Austin, Texas; Boston; Chicago; Dallas; Houston; Los Angeles; Minneapolis; New York; Philadelphia; Raleigh, North Carolina; San Diego; San Francisco; and Seattle.
The Army said the headquarters should be near universities and technology companies.
It said the host city should have workforce expertise in biomedicine, chemistry, computer hardware and software, electronics, materials and mechanical systems.
The Army hasn’t said when it would choose a city.
