DOD to host meets with companies for innovation outreach program

The Defense Department will host meetings with companies this summer in support of its Rapid Reaction Technology Innovation Outreach Program.

  • Cyber situational awareness
  • Wireless, embedded and industrial control systems
  • Next generation malware detection, adaptive defense and response
  • Cyber modeling and simulation
  • Insider threat detection and mitigation
  • Cyber forensics and analytics

  • Big data for cyber
  • Artificial intelligence and autonomy for cyber

Interested business must send applications for the meetings by April 19.
