Military Service's Intelligence: Plans and Priorities Forum

Military Service's Intelligence: Plans and Priorities Forum

July 13th, 2022 2:00pm EST   ON24

The National Defense Authorization Act, signed in December, 2021, authorized more than $768 billion in defense spending for fiscal year 2022 – a jump of five percent that reflects the Pentagon’s significantly increased focus on artificial intelligence, machine learning, data sharing and cybersecurity, among other critical initiatives.

With increased funding from the NDAA, the Department of Defense and military service branches will be able to better leverage advanced technologies from industry partners to create the Internet of Military Things, flatten the data environment, combat the growing threat of cyber attacks, accelerate progress on JADC2 initiatives and retain the nation’s competitive advantage over global adversaries.

Join GovCon Wire for the platform’s Service Intelligence: Plans and Priorities Forum to hear distinguished military service branch officials and industry experts discuss how modernization strategies, acquisition reforms and intelligence innovations will shape the future of U.S. military capabilities in alignment with the 2022 National Defense Strategy.

Vice Admiral Jeffrey Trussler, deputy chief of naval operations for information warfare, N2/N6, Office of the Chief of Naval Operations and director of naval intelligence, will keynote the event to share his invaluable insights as to what lies on the horizon for service intelligence within the U.S. Department of the Navy.
