DoD S&T has provided unquestioned war fighting advantages over 40 years through its unique combination of technology, innovation, creativity, ingenuity, and personnel training. One lesser-known benefit of DoD S&T is its contributions to humanitarian assistance and disaster relief (HA/DR), and Small Business Innovation Research program (SBIR).
This year’s conference will bring Industry together with the Department of Defense Research, Engineering, Acquisition, and Sustainment communities to examine the investment priorities and challenges across the OSD, Components, Agencies and Combatant Commands, including top-level strategy updates from Component and COCOM S&T leadership. It will also provide a platform for communities of interest to brief and discuss their issues. There will be a focus on how the department is aligning its investment in technology to the National Defense Strategy and operational need – from technology discovery (BA 6.1 to 6.4) to capability delivery (BA 6.3 to 6.8). Special featured topics for this year will include the S&T needs of the HA/DR mission as well as success stories from the SBIR program.
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.
