Defense Programs Conference

We are at a critical‐juncture. The new Administration promises many changes. Policy towards the Middle East, with a renewed focus on defeating ISIL and radical Islamic terrorism. Emerging near‐peer competitors, and the “4+1” construct, will force our Military Services to take a hard look at current Readiness, Force Structure, and Modernization requirements.

The bow‐wave of Nuclear Triad Recap is approaching. The 2017 DoD Budget Amendment is imminent, and the fight for repeal of 2018 Sequester/2018 DoD Budget Request, and robust 2019‐2023 Force Structure sizing, is on. The discussion at this year’s Conference could not be more‐timely.


The conference is structured for committed Defense Investors, Sr. Industry Management, DoD Officials, and Congressional Staff.


Space is limited. Pre-Registion required. Email
