It is with sincere regret that NDIA must postpone the Disruptive Technologies Conference originally scheduled to take place on November 13, 2013 at the Federal Gateway, Navy Yard, Washington, DC, due to limited Government Speaker participation.

It is our hope that the event will be rescheduled within this fiscal year. We sincerely thank you for your interest in this event and hope you will participate in the rescheduled conference.

Introduction

The NDIA C4ISR Division will convene the 10th Annual Disruptive Technologies
Conference as a forum of discussion and opportunity for government and industry
senior technologists, product engineers and strategists to advance the application of
prototyping (concept-development-operations) as a means to disrupt the traditional
acquisition process and deliver timely and effective new capability to address emerging
U.S. national security threats.

Conference Introduction
The Department of Defense is now entering a new strategic period summarized
by President Obama in the forward to the Defense Strategy, “Sustaining Global
Leadership: Priorities for 21st Century Defense ” as enunciated on January 3, 2012:

“As we end today’s wars and reshape our Armed Forces, we will ensure that
our military is agile, flexible and ready for the full range of contingencies. In particular, we will continue to invest in the capabilities critical to future success, including intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance; counterterrorism; countering weapons of mass destruction; operating in antiaccess environments; and prevailing in all domains, including cyber.”

As delineated in the current Department’s Better Buying Power 2.0 Initiative, the
future plan is to focus on efficiency and productivity to make the most of a shrinking
RDT&E and Procurement investment portfolio that is challenged by fiscal realities;
pressure for acquisition process improvement; basic affordability of system lifecycle
upgrades; expanded interoperability between existing platforms; and evolving
complex, irregular adversary threats.

Conference Goal
The 10th Annual Disruptive Technologies Conference will examine the approach,
rationale and investment strategy associated with the Department’s plan to improve
design capabilities and make the transition of technologies to acquisition programs
more effective and timely through rapid conceptual, development and operational
prototyping to:
- Mitigate vulnerability
- Foster innovation
- Provide a hedge against technical uncertainty
- Preserve industrial base capabilities
- Generate new application of existing technology
- Develop technology that changes force structure, tactics, techniques or procedures
(TTPs)
- Attract/inspire a new generation of scientists and engineers
