Defense Innovation Days brings together companies who are developing cutting edge innovations that can be deployed to deter war and protect the security of our country with policymakers who are helping steer the nation’s defense strategy.  We give policymakers an opportunity to speak to those companies, big and small, and give the companies insight into future acquisition opportunities. 

The event facilitates a forum where policymakers and business leaders within the defense arena can engage with and learn from one another.
