Roger Krone, CEO at Leidos

TYSONS CORNER, VA, July 31, 2019 — Roger Krone, CEO at Leidos (NYSE: LDOS) and six-time Wash100 winner, joined government personnel, small business representatives and other industry leaders earlier this month to discuss current and future technology for the U.S. Air Force at the 14th annual Dayton Defense Wright Dialogue With Industry event, ExecutiveBiz reported Thursday.

In line with the event’s “Science and Technology for 2030 and Beyond” theme, discussion topics included aviation technology, the Air Force Research Laboratory’s science and technology strategies and the U.S. Air Force’s Autonomy Research Collaboration Network, among other subjects, the service branch said July 23.

Krone, who was one of the keynote speakers on the first day of the nearly three-day WDI gathering, highlighted the need to continue to advance the work that the Air Force and its industry partners have already accomplished.

“We have to get back to work and start thinking about everything that still needs to be done, and that will require a great deal of out-of-the-box thinking from each and every one of us,” he noted.

WDI, hosted by local industry organization Dayton Defense, took place in Dayton, Ohio, from July 16 to 18 and was attended by over 600 people.
