The White House, The Department of Defense, and Special Operations are addressing the emerging threats and technologies of the future. The recent “Technologies for American Innovation and National Security and Technology Vision for an Era of Competition” DoD strategy along with SOCOM Science and Technology initiatives identify novel, SOF-specific, scalable non-kinetic effects provide industry with a window into the future of SOF operations in an era of Great Power competition. Future operational concepts of non-kinetic effects will include directed energy, cyber, and information operations. The ability to inflict temporary and permanent effects will be required to solve mission scenarios beyond 2030 against near-peer adversaries.
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.
