PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The current government climate can pose a change to the defense acquisition system. It is important to understand ways to improve communications and leverage existing investments made by both DoD and commercial firms to preserve U.S. technological superiority. How will the current military budget, new administration, and the defense industry adjust in a time of risk and change?  Is your organization ready?

We encourage you to help us explore these ideas and others related to “T&E in a Time of Risk and Change” as part of our 34th Annual International Symposium.
