MILITARY FORUM DESCRIPTIONS.
Carolina is home to several of our nation’s largest military
installations and over 116,000 of our finest warriors, who serve their
country in some of our military’s most famous and storied commands.
Members of these commands will serve as panelists in our two military
Forums: the Special Operations Forces Technology Forum and the
Conventional Forces and Installations Technology Forum. They will
speak about what they consider to be the most significant problems and
unmet needs of our warfighters and combat commands that may have
technology solutions, and that would reduce casualties and improve
operational efficiency and mission accomplishment in future operations.
The Special Operations Forces Forum will feature members of US Army, US Marine Corps and Joint special
operations units, who will highlight the current and future challenges
and technology needs in these units and will address questions in a
dialogue with the attendees.
The Conventional Forces and Installations Technology Forum is led by members of all the services and key agencies within North
Carolina: US Army, US Marine Corps, US Air Force, US Coast Guard,
National Guard, Corps of Engineers and research elements of the
National Institute of Health and the Army Research Office. The
