DTAR 2009

February 17-18, 2010
Marriott Washington Metro Center
Washington, DC

Learn how the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps are defining defense requirements given the reality of conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq and current National Security imperatives.

Defense leaders are continually assessing the military strategies required for the future — where the needs will be, how to defend and secure and what technologies and equipment will be required. This event will present a first-look analysis of the 2011 DoD program tradeoffs on:

  • Immediate and Near Term Defense Requirements
  • Technology Innovation that will Re-Define Capabilities and Requirements
  • Funding imperatives
  • Capitol Hill Perspectives

A must-attend event for defense companies working to secure military contracts!
