March 30th – April 3rd, 2020
The Deployable Communications Technology Forum, now in its sixth year, provides an intimate educational and training space where government delegates collaborate with one another and industry to develop solutions that address mission-critical communications needs.
With an emphasis on distilling approaches to operational flexibility, security concerns, and enhanced networking capabilities across the full spectrum of deployment platforms and operational environments – including “denied” communication situations, the forum is a unique conduit for top communications organizations within the DoD and partner nations to directly engage with similar teams outside of their respective offices and leading industry technology professionals to have meaningful dialogue on the evolving challenges in the defense arena and generate solutions that directly impact mission success.
This forum directly supports the office of the Deputy SecDef’s policy on engaging with industry, encouraging in-depth technical discussions at all levels. Senior military members from the US and NATO partners gather in a central location to meet face to face with top executives from engineering companies around the world; in parallel, industry engineers and government operators participate in valuable working groups, allowing industry engineers to acquire a greater understanding of communication needs and capability gaps; facilitating industry to assess what it can provide today to fulfill those needs and what it needs to develop to address the capability gaps.
