On February 14, the Virginia Contracting Activity, on behalf of the Defense Intelligence Agency, announced the Defense Intelligence Agency’s plans to hold the Director’s 2nd Industry Outreach Day on April 12-13, 2017.
The Defense Intelligence Agency’s (DIA) Innovation Office (INO) is pleased to announce the Director’s 2nd Quarterly Industry Outreach Day will be held on April 12-13, 2017 in the agency’s Innovation Hub (iHUB).
The object of the Industry Day is to find new capabilities and business processes in a collaborative environment that will advance our decision making and serve to enhance our mission.

The two day April Outreach event will have a mission-wide focus on needs from across the enterprise that span a wide range of categories to include machine translation, document sorting and tagging, secure communications and remote sensing, and artificial intelligence.
