Strengthening Air Force Warfighter
Capabilities Through Military/Industry Partnerships
Air Force IT Day is an annual one-day conference focused on issues and challenges facing the future Air Force. Senior leaders will describe the Air Force vision, current and evolving requirements, acquisition strategies and potential opportunities for industry.
This program will offer you an outstanding opportunity to learn firsthand about the diverse challenges facing our Air Force and how IT/Cyber capabilities can play a major role in meeting those challenges. We have lined up a power packed program of speakers who will tell you about current events in Air Force IT/Cyber today and the Air Force vision with requirements for the future. This year’s theme is: Strengthening War Fighter Capabilities Through Military/Industry Partnerships.
This is a rare opportunity for you to hear first hand from distinguished Air Force leaders about their vision for the future, the shortfalls of their current capabilities, cyberspace warfare directions and requirements, their plans for executing the cyberspace mission, emerging technologies they need, their acquisition strategies, and specific programs of direct interest to IT/Cyber professionals.
The program also will include a panel of distinguished requirements experts from across the Air Force including Air Force Space Command, Air Force Material Command, Pr5ogram Executive Officers (PEOs), and senior the Air Staff policy officials. There will also be a special USAF Small Business strategy session to provide insight into the role small businesses can play to increase overall operational effectiveness.
There are many important policy and program activities underway that will have a profound influence on the direction of future Air Force war fighter capabilities leading to greater efficiencies and effectiveness. Our distinguished speakers will give you important insights into:
