Share Article

Defense Daily’s 10th Annual Open Architecture Summit, taking place THIS WEEK on October 19, 2017 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., will emphasize how Open Architecture (OA) is the key to maintaining legacy defense platforms and a vital foundation to implementing future defense programs.

William Bray, Keynote Speaker at 2017 Open Architecture Summit

At Open Architecture Summit, you’ll hear from industry and government program managers how OA will enable future platforms to keep up with evolving threats and emerging technologies. Open architecture requirements can help the Defense Department keep pace with commercial technology. Budget restraints demand that military services squeeze every bit possible from the service lives of legacy and combat systems, requiring retrofits of emerging technologies that resuscitate designs approaching obsolescence. Learn how the leap is made from today to truly next-generation or leap ahead platforms.
