29Oct Artificial Intelligence for Maneuver

Artificial Intelligence for Maneuver

Future near-peer adversaries will attempt to contest all domains and utilize complex and congested terrain to mitigate current joint force capabilities and reduce effectiveness of U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) tactical maneuver elements.  To help deter or defeat peer threats in contested multi-domain environments, the DoD should leverage advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms in support of robotic autonomous systems, miniaturized sensors, computing power and storage, and secure autonomous communication networks to create human-machine teams bringing greater precision, certainty, speed and mass to the battlefield.

05Nov Ensuring PNT Superiority on the Future Battlefield

Ensuring PNT Superiority on the Future Battlefield

The United States military has long led the world in the development and employment of positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT) in its operations. Military PNT capabilities have become vital to the military’s ability to shape the global environment, deter aggression, and fight and win wars, now and in the future. This reliance on PNT, and particularly the U.S. Global Positioning System (GPS), has created an attractive point of attack which adversaries will increasingly target. U.S. and allied forces will be challenged to maintain mission effectiveness in environments in which PNT information is denied, degraded, or spoofed across nearly every phase of military operations. To strengthen national defense, the Department of Defense and the private sector must work together to create resiliency within the military’s existing GPS enterprise, create sources of PNT that enable robustness and resilience, and find ways to disrupt adversaries’ use of PNT information.

17Nov Fall 2020 CMMC Forum

Fall 2020 CMMC Forum

As the first Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) RFPs quickly approach, it is essential that organizations and companies shift gears to CMMC preparation. CMMC is not just about fixing a gap or implementing a control, it's about an organizational behavior, such as Practice Maturity and Process Maturity, which is essential for Level 3 and higher. 

Potomac Officers Club’s Fall CMMC Forum will feature Katie Arrington, Chief Information Security Officer at the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and a 2020 Wash100 Award recipient, as a keynote speaker. She will analyze the meaning of “process maturity” and the concept of “evidence” of maturity.

During the forum, you will hear from additional federal and industry leaders who will discuss the requirements and priorities of implementing the certification, including scoping of CMMC assessments, supply chain impacts and C3PAOs. 

“I think that five years from now, it's part of a national standard, it's part of how we do business,” said Arrington in regards to CMMC integration.

19Nov Future Battlefield Series: Soldier Performance

Future Battlefield Series: Soldier Performance

Soldiers need physical fitness and mental fortitude to keep them one step ahead of the adversary. The proliferation of wearable technology and the biofeedback and neurofeedback data it generates have created new opportunities to quantify and evaluate tactical athletes’ performance and leverage quantitative data to design the highest performing squads. Now, it’s time for a strategy that leverages human performance expertise from the military, industry, and academia and puts warfighters in control of optimizing their cognitive and physical wellbeing throughout the entire mission lifecycle – from training to mission execution and after action.

10Dec The Future of Data Management = The Death of Data Silos

The Future of Data Management = The Death of Data Silos

The future of data management = the death of data silos
From augmented analytics to AI-driven cloud reservoirs, the future of data management may seem unclear. As agencies invest millions in data infrastructure and data scientists, focus is starting to shift to task automation, secure information sharing, and to future-proofing government systems. This talk will examine current cutting edge data methodologies and look to prepare government agencies for the future of data management.

TBD 5G Summit

5G Summit

***EVENT POSTPONED***

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 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.
