The 2019 AUSA ILW Global Force Symposium & Exposition is a 3-day event that will include presentations from the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army (Acquisition, Logistics, and Technology), the United States Army Materiel Command, and the United States Army Training and Doctrine Command.
This symposium will explore the capabilities outlined in the Army Operating Concept and how the force transforms from being adaptive to driving innovation for Force 2025 and beyond. Special guest presentations, coupled with panel discussions from our senior military and industry leaders, will address critical points of acquisition, research and development, and partnering between military and industry. For the Army, this means restructuring military-industrial programs. The Army must take a hard look at its acquisition processes, with an eye towards the future, to maintain a competitive overmatch against potential adversaries.
