Alexandria, VA, August 05, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- The US military is moving into a complex international environment that requires it to further develop its equipment and prepare its personnel, force structure, decision-making capabilities, and concepts of operation for a more interoperable and expeditionary approach, one with greater asset visibility and a decreased logistical footprint. Key technological advances will help foster an informative discussion that is focused on overcoming critical challenges related to the coordination and execution of military logistics in deployed environments.
In response to these initiatives, Defense Strategies Institute has designed the Defense Logistics Technology Summit. This summit will focus on optimizing the supply chain in order to support a leaner, more agile military force. Some of the broader topics that will be discussed in this forum will include: near-term prospective uses for additive manufacturing and 3D printing, opportunities to further utilize the IoT in support of military logistics, the increased need for asset visibility and resource management technology, strategies to further reduce the military logistics footprint and efforts to improve the mobility and sustainment of resources as they pass through the military logistics supply chain.
DSI’s Defense Logistics Technology Summit, occurring on September 13-14, 2016, will assemble US military commands, academia, and technology providers in a collaborative, open forum to discuss emerging technology and best practices for the optimization and transformation of the US Military logistics supply chain. Their non-partisan approach allows us to reach across all services and organizations to bring together a truly holistic group of decision makers and solution providers.
