8th Annual Night Vision Systems
Adapting Technologies to Own the Night in Next Generation Threat Environments
The demands of the 21st century battlefield present some of the most challenging threat environments known to man. Protecting and equipping the warfighter has never been more complex as they combat terrorist threats, weapons of mass destruction, and rogue nations in harsh, multifaceted conditions for longer periods of time. It is the advancements in both sensor and imaging technology that enable the warfighter to see, acquire, and target hostile forces, day or night, in these next generation threat environments.
"The Army is using its advanced Night Vision sensors in Iraq and Afghanistan 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The capabilities of these critical combat tactical sensors are vital in the asymmetrical fight against terrorism." -COL Curtis McCoy, U.S. Army G8 Office
This event will focus on the latest technological advancements in military night vision systems and sensors to maintain a competitive edge on the battlefield. It will look at investments in new solutions meant to enhance warfighter ability to “own the night.”
In addition, discover how the night vision world is adapting in the current fiscal environment, what the future outlook is, and how industry is evolving to meet commercial needs.
IDGA’s 8th Annual Night Vision Systems will bring together all relevant stakeholders to discuss the most pressing issues facing the night vision community. Analyze future trends, identify immediate and long-term needs, and uncover up-and-coming technologies for use in changing environments. Policy makers, uniformed service leaders, law enforcement and industry partners will gather in Washington to network, share best practices and explore potential paths to illuminate the future of night vision.
This year's event will look at:
- Emerging night vision needs and requirements within the Department of Defense
- New capabilities and technologies for night operations on the ground, in the air, and by sea
- Partnership opportunities between government, industry, and academia
- Adapting night vision technology to complement existing/up-and-coming commercial applications
- Providing enhanced vision systems to federal and local law enforcement agencies
Build important relationships with decision-makers of the Night Vision industry. For more information contact Marc Zamarin at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-877-886-0722
