ComDef returns to Washington, DC to provide insight, discussions and networking for government, military, academia and industry with an industrial base emphasis. ComDef will address the following questions:
How will the US Defense Budget shape the industrial base; What are the implications for each Service?
Will there be another round of mergers and acquisitions? Who will take the lead?
If commercial technology R&D now outspends defense R&D, how will defense procurement barriers to entry be addressed?
Will export control reform help or hinder the industrial base?
What/who are the key industry partners and personalities?
