Join the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) 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.
