Seven aircraft have been reported missing since 2000. This begs the question, “How is it possible to lose a plane in this day and age of advanced technology?”
In this webinar thought leaders in the aviation community will share their views on the state of the aviation search and rescue industry including:
• An overview of the various aviation-related search and rescue technologies and processes used today.
• The challenges that exist to “find” the aircraft, to “predict” potential emergency situations, and to “communicate” for assistance while in the air before tragedy occurs.
• A peek into the future convergence of today’s fragmented aviation systems and technologies including an update on various initiatives currently underway to improve aviation safety going forward.
Join us as we share our ideas on how the aviation industry will evolve into a more comprehensive, connected, integrated aviation emergency “ecosystem” that will prevent emergencies, protect assets and, ultimately, save more lives.

The battle for innovation has begun.
Join Defense Secretary Ash Carter and some of the brightest minds in military and consumer technology to discuss the future of innovation and national security at the first-ever Defense One Tech Summit.
Something new is in the air. A mix of excitement and apprehension has emerged from the Defense Department’s deliberate outreach to Silicon Valley and the tech world. Stakeholders from Washington to Palo Alto are abuzz about a new era in public-private partnership. It all comes as global terrorism reaches European cities and American shores, and as Western governments navigate a re-emergence of superpower geopolitics. Carter has put the call out — for patriotism, good governance, and national security: the Pentagon wants you.
But the conversation is far deeper than hoodied hackers and high-and-tight commanders exchanging wary glances. The longtime partnership between defense and tech is entering a new era. After World War II, the U.S. government, led by the military, contributed two-thirds of every dollar that went to science and technology research, the private sector just one-third. Those numbers have flipped.
Every day, tech industry giants and charismatic entrepreneurs seize territory that used to be the sole domain of the government, from robotics and autonomy to cloud computing and space conquest. The military has taken notice, outsourcing more and more innovation to private-sector players.
Now is the time to take stock, exchange ideas, and see what comes next. Now is the time for the Defense One Tech Summit.
Maintaining a fully manned and dynamic workforce is a key component of military readiness. While much of the force readiness conversation is focused on the warfighters themselves, equally important is developing and sustaining the talent that provides the military with the infrastructure to accomplish its missions.
The future force will require expertise in technology, acquisition management, exacting test and evaluation, sustainment of weapon systems and other highly skilled applications to support wartime operations, emergency preparedness and humanitarian missions.
In a time of tightening budgets: How do DOD critical skills gaps affect mission support functions? What is shaping force readiness?
Join us as we discuss manpower and talent required to support the warfighter and their influence on shaping force readiness.

The Nordic region is known for its natural resources, innovations in renewable energy and healthcare, proximity to the Arctic, and emphasis on transparency in government. However, these unique attributes make the region a prime target for cyber threat groups looking to capitalize on Nordic countries’ robust economies and distinct geopolitical concerns. FireEye Threat Intelligence assesses that threat actors aggressively target strategic industries and government and military organizations in search of valuable economic, political, or military intelligence.
In this webinar we will be drawing on the findings from our recent report, Cyber Threats to the Nordic Region.
Register now to learn about:
•Some of the specific threat activity we have observed against Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden
•Attacks on Critical Infrastructure in the Nordics
•The motivations and drivers of future threat activity in the Nordics

At today's rate of growth, the size of the digital universe in 2025 will be 176 zettabytes, of information. To put that into perspective, a single zettabyte is enough to hold 250 billion DVDs. All of it could have some relevance to national security. The Defense Department and Intelligence Community will be in charge of managing an exponentially growing amount of outside data, along with an exploding volume of internal data from warfighters in the field, sensors overhead, and from increasingly complex and connected pieces of military equipment. They'll have to manage it via common IT architecture (IC-ITE), do so securely, and in the face of ever more technologically advanced adversaries.
Welcome to the Defense information environment of the year 2025. This event will give stakeholders, technologists, and the public an understanding of how Department of Defense and the Intelligence Community view the future of digital information. It will touch on new technologies, from quantum encryption to optic telecommunications and even cognitive computing. But it will also look at practical steps that the Defense Department is taking today to prepare for the digital world a decade ahead.

Boeing found that many successful attacks were linked to basic security vulnerabilities in vendor-supplied software, and over 90% of the software they tested had significant, compromising flaws. These vulnerabilities introduced unnecessary risk into critical applications — yet as the world's leading aerospace company and largest manufacturer of commercial jetliners and military aircraft, Boeing needs to rely on its third-party software as a means of speeding up innovation.Read more >
