Space has gone through a myriad of consequential changes since mankind entered the domain, and today, it is not a benign environment. The commercialization and democratization of space has created a highly-competitive landscape that simultaneously drives innovation and poses significant risks to countries that cannot keep up.
The U.S. must develop and deploy innovative solutions at the speed of relevance to keep pace with adversaries, ensure the country’s space superiority, protect critical systems and maintain national security.
Join the Potomac Officers Club’s 3rd Annual Industrial Space Defense Summit to hear government and industry space leaders discuss advancements in space defense technologies, the importance of building a viable industrial base in space and the critical role of public-private partnerships in the nation’s defenses across a volatile domain.
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.
The Department of the Air Force, Chief Modeling and Simulation Officer (CMSO) , Mr. Richard Tempalski, and the Chief Technology and Innovation Officer (CTIO) of the U.S. Space Force, Dr. Lisa Costa, will be hosting the 2nd annual Department of the Air Force Modeling and Simulation Summit on Tuesday, May 9th – Thursday, May 11th 2023 at The Clyde Hotel in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
During the week of 15-19 May 2023, the Department of Defense (DoD) Communities of Interest (CoIs) for Human Systems and Biomedical are joining together for an Independent Research and Development (IR&D) Technology Interchange Meeting (TIM) with interested Industry parties. This invitation is open to all industry IR&D, including large corporations, medium-sized, and small businesses, as well as, academia, National Labs and FFRDCs. The event is planned to occur at the Strategic Analysis Executive Conference Center, 4075 Wilson Blvd, Suite 200, Arlington VA.
This engagement has broad goals to increase awareness, stimulate collaboration, and seek alignment between industry’s IR&D innovation investments and DoD’s high-priority science and technology needs and corresponding acquisition sustainment roadmaps. Leading Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) from the DoD’s Human Systems and Biomedical CoIs are expected to participate.

The Ohio Space Forum brings together federal, military, industry, and academic leaders in the dynamic fields of space research, operations, intelligence, exploration and defense. Speakers address Ohio’s space history, and how the state continues to lead.
The Forum provides every attendee the chance to gather among nationally recognized leaders in space intelligence, exploration, and defense to benefit from their expertise. It is an annual event to learn more about growth opportunities for businesses in Ohio as we continue to support our nation’s vital space missions. This is your premier opportunity to connect with state and national leaders to learn how Ohio continues building on our unparalleled space heritage, innovation, and tech workforce to pave the way in fortifying America’s National and Economic Security, as well as Space Exploration objectives.
DoD S&T has provided unquestioned war fighting advantages over 40 years through its unique combination of technology, innovation, creativity, ingenuity, and personnel training. One lesser-known benefit of DoD S&T is its contributions to humanitarian assistance and disaster relief (HA/DR), and Small Business Innovation Research program (SBIR).
This year’s conference will bring Industry together with the Department of Defense Research, Engineering, Acquisition, and Sustainment communities to examine the investment priorities and challenges across the OSD, Components, Agencies and Combatant Commands, including top-level strategy updates from Component and COCOM S&T leadership. It will also provide a platform for communities of interest to brief and discuss their issues. There will be a focus on how the department is aligning its investment in technology to the National Defense Strategy and operational need – from technology discovery (BA 6.1 to 6.4) to capability delivery (BA 6.3 to 6.8). Special featured topics for this year will include the S&T needs of the HA/DR mission as well as success stories from the SBIR program.
The IDGA Disruptive Technology for Defense Transformation Summit (DTDT) will bring together a diverse and rich ecosystem of Military, Government, SES, Political, Tactical and Commercial personnel including innovators, federal and military leaders, systems integrators, start-ups, VC investors, and industry with the purpose of discussing how to best integrate next generation tech into military capabilities.
DTDT enables the robust effort between leaders and authority to make significant changes to exploit technology across defense and transform the way we think and operate.
In line with the critical priorities outlined by the current Undersecretary of Defense for Research & Engineering to maintain a technical advantage over our adversaries, we will be taking a deep dive into these areas:
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.
