Defense Innovation Days brings together companies who are developing cutting edge innovations 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 defense policymakers and business leaders can engage with and learn from one another.
