Why should you attend the Symposium?

DSI’s Military Vehicle Systems Summit will provide the latest updates from key organizations involved in vehicle procurement and fleet modernization. The symposium will focus on Future Capabilities for Fleet Modernization and include sessions in understanding where opportunities will and will not occur in the coming years.

You can expect to hear from OSD and policy makers, life cycle leadership, Vehicle Suppliers and Components, as well as futures and planning directorates involved in vehicle platform acquisition and support.

The symposium will provide valuable information on efforts from the policy, systems engineering, and life cycle communities on how future vehicles will be designed and the capabilities necessary to meet the evolving threats.
