Defense Innovation Days was once again an enormous success attracting a sold-out crowd of over 250 attendees representing more than 100 defense and national security related organizations from around the country.
The event included keynote addresses by Frank Kendall, Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics, and Dennis McGinn, Assistant Secretary of the Navy, Energy, Installations and Environment. Other prominent speakers included Governor Gina Raimondo (RI); Senator Jack Reed (RI), Senator Christopher Murphy (CT), and Congressman Jim Langevin (RI), as well as an impressive lineup of senior military and civilian leaders from the Departments of Defense and Homeland Security.
Over the course of the three-day event, national leaders from the Department of Defense, industry, and Congress engaged in discussions delving into innovation from the technology, cybersecurity, and unmanned systems perspectives.
