Army to brief industry on computing, power, EW, and intelligence technology goals
ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md., 12 Jan. 2016. U.S. Army researchers will brief industry in late March on potential contracting opportunities at the Army Communications-Electronics Research, Development, and Engineering Center. Technology briefings will be 31 March to 1 April 2016 at the Mallette Training Facility, 6008 Combat Drive, at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md.
Briefings will focus on enabling technologies for command, power, and integration; intelligence and information warfare; night vision; space and terrestrial applications; and other special topics.
Morning sessions of the first day will provide strategic perspectives, and insights into CERDEC's current science and technology roadmaps in:
-- advanced computing platforms, software architectures, and visualization systems;
-- generation, storage, management, and distribution of soldier and mobile power and energy;
-- capabilities that protect the network and deny or manipulate information for intelligence protection;
-- electronic warfare (EW) to sense, protect, and control the electromagnetic spectrum dynamically and deny its use by adversaries;
-- intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, and targeting information collection that adapts to changes and narrows focus on signatures of interest;
-- intelligence analysis, exploitation and dissemination;
-- technologies to enable infantry, ground vehicles, and aircraft to detect, identify and defeat improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and other explosives; and
-- networking technologies to transport and analyze data from numerous Army, joint, and coalition intelligence and information sources.
These briefings represent an attempt by Army researchers to capitalize on industry creativity and innovation by working closely with industry in the earliest stages of the product life cycle, before requirements are firm and before design concepts are determined.
This event will serve as the kick-off meeting to help industry in identifying and aligning efforts with CERDEC's ; articulate high-level capabilities and their derived technical requirements; and present technology roadmaps and CERDEC's strategies.
Registration will open on about 1 Feb. 2016 and close on 28 Feb. 2016. Email questions or concerns to the Army's John Lambert at email@example.com, or James Greer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
