USINDOPACOM Coalition Interoperability Forum
04/16/2019 - 04/17/2019
Hale Ikena, Fort Shafter, HI
Future conflicts involving the United States will require regional coalitions of like-minded, capable and interoperable partners. Efforts to achieve this in a coalition environment have stagnated in the past 14 years. The U.S. needs to energize the community of interest, including organizations in industry, academia, government and military, to accelerate these efforts. USINDOPACOM is hosting this event to discuss major challenges impacting coalition interoperability to rapidly field warfighting capabilities.
Homeland Security Conference
04/22/2019 - 04/24/2019
Ronald Reagan Building, Washington, DC
More than any other operations, homeland security missions call for coordinated and end-to-end collaboration. Success depends on preparing for the unknowable, preventing the unthinkable and planning recovery from the unimaginable. To assist in the process, AFCEA International brings together the people in charge of ensuring success--from subject matter experts to frontline responders--for three days of open discussion about the various aspects of homeland security.
