During the week of 2-6 May 2022, the Air Force’s Cyberspace Superiority Mission Area together with the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center’s (AFLCMC’s) Crypto/Cyber Systems Division plan to co-sponsor the 2022 Cyberspace and Crypto Independent Research & Development (IR&D) Technology Interchange Meeting (TIM). This will be a classified event and will likely be held at Kelly Field, Joint Base San Antonio (JBSA), TX.
This invitation is open to all industry IR&D participants, including large corporations, medium-sized, and small businesses, as well as, academia, National Labs and FFRDCs.
This engagement has broad goals to increase awareness, stimulate collaboration, and seek alignment between industry’s IR&D innovation investments and the Air Force’s high-priority science and technology needs and corresponding acquisition and sustainment roadmaps. Leading Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) from Air Combat Command (ACC), AFLCMC, the 16th Air Force at JBSA, the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), Air Force Futures (formerly AF Warfighting Integrating Capability Office) and the Cyberspace Research Center at the AF Institute of Technology (AFIT) are expected to participate. This year we could also see SMEs from the National Security Agency and other non-DoD agencies, partnering to meet national cyberspace strategies in unison.
The Cyberspace and Crypto taxonomies are high priority areas of interest being looked at to enrich our S&T and acquisition roadmaps, as well as to expand our lenses in the related focus areas of your IR&D portfolios and corporate investments.

The cyberspace battlefield has changed. No longer an arena where adversaries launch a single distributed denial of service attack, lob a virus or infiltrate a network, it is now a state of persistent barrages and simultaneous campaigns. Attacks against high-value targets still occur, but they are accompanied by a torrent of continuous assaults on political, economic and security interests.
Both offense and defense in this landscape requires a united front where no frontlines exist. A powerful cyber force built on a strong bond between government agencies and allied nations will be the only way to combat adversaries bent on not only destroying one country but also dominating all of cyberspace.
TechNet Cyber 2023 will be a forum for military, industry and academia to discuss and plan how to achieve persistent engagement, presence and innovation. It is the opportunity to devise a new strategy to build resilience and defend networks.
AFCEA International’s TechNet Cyber is one of the pillars of the association’s TechNet brand and encompasses the Defense Department as well as civilian agencies across a broad spectrum of mission sets.
AFA's Air, Space & Cyber Conference is the leading professional development event for Air Force and Space Force officers, enlisted members, civilians, veterans, and defense industry leaders and representatives.
Hear what top Air Force and Space Force leadership, industry experts, and government officials had to say about the challenges facing the aerospace and cyber communities today and in the future.
