DaytonDefense is providing even greater opportunities this year for industry-government collaboration. We will offer the opportunity for industry to meet one-on-one with representatives of the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) to have more detailed discussions on pending solicitations or industry suggestions for meeting technology gaps. Representatives will be available from the Technology Directorate portfolios. These one-on-one sessions provide the chance to help shape future solicitations or offer innovative solutions to close technology gaps. A limited number of appointments will be available so register early.

There is no registration fee for invited Air Force personnel who will be giving formal presentations at the conference, however, all speakers MUST register for the conference.
