Aside from seeing lots of cool new gear and running into old friends, one of the greatest things about Warrior Expo is the breakout sessions. Not only is Stanley McChrystal going to give the keynote address, there are multiple opportunities to learn more about key technologies.
After learning of the theme of his address, “Plywood Leadership: Lessons on Leadership from a Warrior, Statesman, and Scholar”, I am particular looking forward to GEN McChrystal’s talk. But there are plenty of other chances to pick up something new.
But GEN McChrsytal won’t be the only flag officer on hand to lend his expertise. In the session, “Logistics: The Big Picture”, Gen Carrol H. “Howie” Chandler, USAF (Ret), LTG Robert T. Dail, USA (Ret), BG Steve Seay, USA (Ret), and Capt Donald M. Ervine, USN (Ret) will relate their experience with historical procurement trends, upcoming issues, and potential solutions to these continued challenges.
We are also particularly fortunate that Guy Cramer, President & CEO of HyperStealth Biotechnology Corp will be addressing “Camouflage – The New Science of Stealth” right on the heels of the closure of the US Army Camouflage Improvement Effort solicitation. At Warrior Expo – West Guy mentioned the existence of a new technology and has said he will disclose more information on it at Warrior Expo – East. What’s more, maybe we can persuade him to reveal his approach to the Army requirement.
Additionally, iRobot will demonstrate their robotics technologies in their booth during a presentation entitled, “Government & Industrial Robots: Robots that make a Difference.” DuPontâ„¢ will utilize their mobile THERMO-MANÂ® demonstrator to show how important FR clothing is for the service member.
Other session topics include “Navigating DOD Contracting Vehicles” as well as “Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC)”. Overall, a pretty good opportunity to learn more about industry.
