Cloud-Forward Approach: Delivering IT Readiness to the Fleet

April 6 @ 2:00 pm

Potomac AB

We see a greater dependence on cloud infrastructure, but naval forces will operate in environments where the connectivity to the cloud will be disrupted, disconnected, intermittent or low bandwidth (D-DIL). Although the services have ventured into partnerships with commercial industry to address their challenges, there still remains government responsibility to be technically proficient in this emerging and very dynamic environment. The panel will discuss the challenges the community will face in D-DIL, not just from an operator’s perspective, but also from the technical perspective.

Future Challenges for Navy and Marine Corps Installations

April 6 @ 3:00 pm

Potomac CD

Historically, the Department of the Navy has assumed risk in shore infrastructure investments to increase readiness, future force structure and other priorities. Given the imperative of contested domains in future operations outlined in the 2018 “National Defense Strategy,” today’s enterprise of installations and ranges serving as platforms for a new generation of weapon systems need to be configured and resilient to enable current and future missions. The panel will address initiatives and challenges to sustain U.S. shore capabilities, while enhancing installation resilience to meet mission assurance requirements for the warfighter.

Jones Act and the American Maritime Shipping Industry

As the Jones Act enters its second century, much is still misunderstood about the law and its impact on the U.S. economy and national security. This forum will provide a fact-based discussion on the practical effects of the reservation of coastwise cargoes for American vessels and will provide insight into the practices of U.S. global competitors in supporting their maritime industries and preventing foreign domination of their coastwise and inland trades.
