The Emerging & Disruptive Technologies (EDT) for Defense Conference is the inaugural event for military decision-makers, leading industry, academia, and non-traditional defense companies, who are transforming joint capabilities and facilitating the integration of disruptive technologies in the defense enterprise. The conference will focus on modernization priorities and cutting-edge technologies, which will enable JADC2 architecture, expanded maneuver, and information advantage.

Over the course of the two conference days, the forum will explore the integration of data-driven capabilities, transformation of intelligence PED, institution of cloud architecture, the power of AI/ML-enabled technologies, unmanned and autonomous systems, robotics, and cyber resilience across all networks and platforms.
