In today’s defense world, the only certainty is uncertainty. Adversaries are weaponizing open source technologies to cause never before seen devastation; politics worldwide are changing, causing shifts in global alliances; the U.S. defense budget continues to fluctuate; and more young Americans are choosing to pursue non-STEM career paths. While all of these uncertainties bring challenges, they also present unique and interesting opportunities.
In this talk, Dr. Eric L. Moore, Director of the U.S. Army Research Development Engineering Command Edgewood Chemical Biological Center (RDECOM ECBC), will discuss how the chemical and biological defense, science, technology and engineering mission can thrive during times of uncertainty. Dr. Moore will discuss current event, and ECBC case studies that will spark discussions around ethics, the future, and what we can do to stay successful.

The NDIA has a policy of strict compliance with federal and state antitrust laws. The antitrust laws prohibit competitors from engaging in actions that could result in an unreasonable restraint of trade. Consequently, NDIA members must avoid discussing certain topics when they are together – both at formal association membership, board, committee, and other meetings and in informal contacts with other industry members: prices, fees, rates, profit margins, or other terms or conditions of sale (including allowances, credit terms, and warranties); allocation of markets or customers or division of territories; or refusals to deal with or boycotts of suppliers, customers or other third parties, or topics that may lead participants not to deal with a particular supplier, customer or third party.
