The theme of the plenary is industry and governments working together to implement interoperability. Dr. Paul Kaminski, Chairman of the US Department of Defense Science Board, and Gen(ret) Harald Kujat, former Chairman of NATO’s Military Committee are just a few the featured speakers along with senior industry executives.
Topics that will be explored in depth include market conditions providing the demand for interoperability, the transition of the NCOIC business case responding to the market, and a discussion by senior customers and industry executives of the need for interoperability for coalition and joint operations. The plenary session will provide an excellent opportunity to hear from those in a position to influence either RFPs or the responding proposals.
Additionally there will be a series of business and technical discussions that will tie business objectives with technical capabilities to allow industry understanding of customer views and customers of industry concerns.
