The Modernization Quandary An NDIA ETI Online Workshop
6/7/2021 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
Event Type : Webinar
Event Code : 1R04
Join NDIA’s Emerging Technologies Institute as we host our first virtual workshop, "The Modernization Quandary."
Over the next decade, a large investment spike will be required to cover the costs of the platforms and capabilities that have long been ignored as the Department of Defense has been fighting the war on terrorism while simultaneously dealing with funding pressure caused by events like the Budget Control Act. At the same time, the Services are examining their planned procurements and find that the existing programs must shift to new capabilities, many of which are either unfunded or nascent, to meet the current and future threat.
We invite you to participate in this workshop and discuss which technologies and processes can ease the coming modernization crunch. This event marks the beginning of a serious conversation between the government, industry, and Congress as to what needs to be done first and what can be deferred. The workshop will have three panels to target distinct recommendations: technology options, process options, and legislative options. Don’t miss your chance to be a part of this important conversation that will inform the modernization decisions of the future.
Please check back soon for additional details on speakers and registration!

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.
