NORAD, NORTHCOM to host STRDI HD Symposium

On August 25, NORAD and USNORTHCOM announced an industry day. In January 2022, NORAD and USNORTHCOM (N&NC) hosted the first of a recurring Science & Technology (S&T), Research & Development (R&D), and Innovation (STRDI) Homeland Defense (HD) Symposium aimed at addressing the Combatant Commander’s highest operational priorities. Building on the January 2022 event, N&NC will host a second STRDI HD Symposium 17-21 October 2022. A significant addition to the upcoming event, however, is a dedicated three-day United States (US) and Canadian (CAN) Industry engagement.
