Leveraging Cutting-Edge Commercial Technology For Defense

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

Research and development (R&D) has always been a key aspect of advancing U.S. military power. Yet, in a quickly evolving technological world, can military R&D keep up? Are there more effective ways for tapping into available commercial technologies and adapting them for defense purposes? What mechanisms need to be put in place?

Please join us for a discussion by a distinguished panel that will assess the Department of Defense's ability to leverage cutting-edge commercial technologies.
