AUSA North Texas – Audie Murphy Chapter attends Emerging Technologies and Grass Roots National Security Symposium

Keynote Dr. Mark Lewis, Executive Director of NDIA’s Emerging Technologies Institute spoke at the National Defense Industrial Association’s symposium in which the chapter was a Bronze sponsor. The discussions centered on the United States need of a whole industry cultural shift, enabling more contributors to take part in innovation, finding more funding methods, and non-traditional contractual relationships, working with allies, enabling a powerhouse US supply chain that retains its IP, and ensuring the country understand the mission needs of the warfighter on a more complex level than before.
