MDA to host Industry Innovation Summit

On April 10, the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) issued a notice about the FY 2024 MDA Industry Innovation Summit.

This special notice is to announce the Missile Defense Agency’s Industry Innovation Summit on 10-11 July 2024. This year’s summit will be hosted at the Von Braun Complex III on Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama. The summit will provide industry partners a foundational understanding of the pacing challenges posed by our adversaries; educate industry on the various processes and challenges within the MDA; provide panels for key industry and service leaders to discuss their responses to these challenges; and encourage dialogue about how MDA, together with industry, can accelerate the development of new technologies to address the pacing challenges.

The summit’s multi-mission focus poses the question “What do we need to change to work smarter, so we can support the warfighter with speed, agility, collaboration, and innovation?” To answer this question, the summit is anchored with national keynote speakers who know and understand the evolving, complex landscape of digital trends and how they impact the work, markets, and business over time. Topics include acquisition and engineering reform, implications of artificial intelligence, the art of the possible (digital transformation, frontier technologies, and acquisition forum), and leadership, industry, and service panels.

Opportunities for one-on-one meetings will be available to participants at a later date. Note: The Industry Innovation Summit will host a number of SECRET/NOFORN sessions.
