USD R&E Enterprise 5 May 2020 1600 - 1730

In 2018 and 2019, DEFENSE Forum attendees heard Dr. Mike Griffin, Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering, describe his top modernization priorities. In the past two years, he has built and staffed his department to address each of these critical technologies, with the goal of fostering technological dominance across the Department of Defense. The DoD R&E Assistant Directors will provide an update on their respective technology development and the critical roles government, industry, and academia play in getting these technologies to the warfighter.
