DoD Energy Resilience

This panel will explore how resilience is emerging as an important strategy for DoD to manage performance and risk, especially in its approach to energy. The Department of Defense has begun coordinating energy resilience assessments, and is considering new guidance. Meanwhile, each of the military services already has injected resilience as a foundational element within their respective energy strategies. During this session, senior military leaders and academic researchers will share their vision on what resilience means and how it will shape future decisions and initiatives. Attendees will enjoy a unique opportunity to discuss how this strategic shift might influence readiness, security, policies, and future investments.

The USSOCOM SBIR program supports the full spectrum of the SOF AT&L Science & Technology commodity areas by stimulating technology innovation in small businesses through contract awards aimed at discovering, developing, and rapidly inserting new capabilities to solve Special Operation Forces' needs. Using non-traditional acquisition methods, the USSOCOM SBIR/STTR enables advancement of the Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit (TALOS) and allows TALOS to reach innovative small businesses normally not available with traditional acquisition methods.

Cybersecurity and Protecting the Nation’s Critical Infrastructure

One of the greatest challenges facing the DOD today is securing critical energy infrastructure control systems from cyber attack on our military installations. Control systems run the base electrical infrastructure, oil and gas pipelines, water systems building management systems, weapon systems, etc. A loss of these critical systems will have a direct impact on the mission and therefore national security. This session will address the issue from a variety of perspectives with several national leaders in this space. Join in the conversation and hear representatives from a DOD engineering organization, military academic institution, combatant command, and service cyber component commands.

Advancing Medical Technologies for the DoD

Studies have shown that understanding the relationships between Academic “Pioneers”, Industry “Market Makers”, and Government “Funders/Regulators” are at the heart of efficiently accelerating the translation of biomedical innovation from “Lab to Market”. This session will invite a panel of thought leading experts to discuss how Academia, Industry and Government can work together to bring new medical technology thru from discovery to market ready product scale-up.

Energy-System Testing and Evaluation to Support DOD Applications

This panel will discuss testing platforms at the Department of Energy National Laboratories that support performance testing and risk reduction for pre-commercial energy technologies and systems prior to deployment to DOD and other end-users. This will include discussions on how "non-traditional" DOD contractors, small businesses and start-ups can access and leverage these capabilities to obtain relevant, credible performance data and increase visibility to funders and key decision-makers. Specific, relevant examples of technology evaluations at these test-beds will be presented and discussed.

Energy as a Service

The Air Force recognizes the critical importance of electric power at installations to support the mission spanning Air, Space and Cyber domains. Meanwhile, rapid changes in the electric power industry present the Air Force and other large energy users not only with new opportunities but also additional complexity and increasing threats. The Air Force seeks to partner with industry by working with a single entity to provide the full array of fence-to-fence installation energy needs, from electricity supply arrangements and onsite generation to energy conservation measures and distribution infrastructure management. Learn what industry partners from utility and energy service companies will need in order to offer Energy-as-a-Service, the constraints facing the Air Force in procurement of such service, and how other large energy users outside the Department of Defense are looking to leverage this business model.
