22July Future Virtual Battlefield

Future Virtual Battlefield

The Department of Defense’s business practices and approaches were not traditionally designed to quickly field emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, virtual reality, cloud computing, advanced data analytics; however, these technologies have shifted the world around us. 

As the federal government and defense agencies continue to integrate more emerging technologies, the public and private sectors must present a united front to transform legacy mindsets by widening skills gaps in a process-driven culture risk to enhance DoD’s agility and battlefield edge.

At Potomac Officers Club’s Future Virtual Battlefield Event, on July 22nd, featuring Maria Gervais, director, Synthetic Training Environment Cross-Functional Team, Army Futures Command, notable federal and industry leaders will discuss the priorities and challenges of modern warfare. 

“It’s a digital age. Virtual reality is not uncommon. Rapid change is the norm right now. VR and augmented reality technologies are of huge importance in the way we innovate moving on, because that’s what this generation is used to...Technology is catching up. We cannot slow down.” -- Dr. Alethea Duhon, technical director at the Air Force Agency for Modeling Simulation.

11Aug The Future Battlefield: Weaponizing Data Across the Digital Battlefield

The Future Battlefield: Weaponizing Data Across the Digital Battlefield

The Army is constantly trying to keep pace with an evolving adversary, which creates challenges in the combat environment with the readiness of our forces and their ability to regain readiness against an enemy that can challenge us across the board. The key to innovating is the speed of integrating and exploiting innovative technology into the digital battlefield through investments such an open architecture, DevSecOps, next generation governance, and converged data platforms. Success is defined by iterative solutions delivered at the speed of war. The Army is saving time and money by not being locked into proprietary systems; instead, they own the access or APIs needed to leverage and integrate the latest emerging technologies. As a result, intel and operation mission capabilities are delivered faster and more securely, operate with enhanced reliability, and meet stakeholder needs at less cost.

TBD 5G Summit

5G Summit

In March, the White House released its National Strategy to Secure 5G of the United States to frame how the nation will safeguard 5G wireless infrastructure at home and across the globe. The new law directs the president to produce a strategy “to ensure security of next generation wireless communications systems and infrastructure,” within 180 days of its enactment. 

5G wireless technology is anticipated to unleash unprecedented levels of connectivity between millions of new internet of things devices and there are already a range of deployments making their way across the U.S. and in a few federal agencies. 

At Potomac Officers Club’s 5G Summit, notable federal and industry leaders will discuss emerging programs, priorities and challenges within the integration process of the new 5G framework. As emerging technologies continue to become an integral part of business and innovation, leaders across all divisions must stay ahead of the curve to tackle national and global issues. 

Join Potomac Officers Club for its 5G Summit 2020 on October 27th to learn about the impact that innovative technologies and 5G integration have on the private and public sectors, the steps the federal agencies have taken to remain up to speed with the rapid advancement of technology, and the future programs, plans and priorities as the nation aligns with emerging technology.
