Senators Richard Burr and Thom Tillis, the North Carolina Military Business Center (NCMBC), North Carolina Military Foundation, University of North Carolina and the Institute for Defense and Business will host the 2015 North Carolina Federal Advanced Technologies Review at the McKimmon Conference & Training Center at North Carolina State University in Raleigh on June 2-3, 2015.
The Review will focus on the future advanced technology needs of the Department of Defense (DoD) and other federal agencies. The objective of this Review is to establish dialogue between industry, academia and government and to form partnerships to address the future needs of the federal government to meet technology challenges ahead.
“This Review is an unprecedented opportunity for NC companies to showcase their technologies to at least 17 federal agencies, including Senior Executives from the key R&D agencies of the Department of Defense,” said Scott Dorney, executive director, NCMBC. “Any North Carolina business that is developing or currently selling a technology that has potential defense applications should definitely exhibit at and/or attend this event.”
Although all technologies are subject to discussion during the review, the seven “Industry and Military Forums” will focus on the following technology sectors:
- Advanced Materials & Manufacturing
- Soldier Systems & Operational Energy
- Ground Vehicles, Unmanned Systems & Robotics
- Biotechnologies and Biodefense
- Medical Technologies
- Cyber Security, Software and Advanced IT Systems
- C4ISR Hardware Systems
Additionally, the review’s challenges and needs and meet and greet sessions for the US Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) will offer North Carolina companies the opportunity to learn first-hand about the agencies’ future technology requirements and to meet one-on-one with senior agency officials.
