Event description

Description

JOIN US FOR A FASCINATING AFTERNOON OF CUTTING-EDGE PNT TECHNOLOGIES AVAILABLE FOR LICENSING!

The PNT Technology Showcase is a collaborative production of C-TRAC (Center for Technology, Research and Commercialization), the Technology Marketplace (www.TechnologyMarketplace.org), and the Air Force CyberWorx program.

What is PNT?

Positioning, Navigation and Timing, or PNT, are the three necessary elements that, when combined with map data, constitute GPS.

A directive from Congress asks that PNT alternatives to standard GPS be developed due to concerns that the US is over-reliant on vulnerable GPS technology. The Air Force is addressing this problem via a CyberWorx Design Sprint beginning February 27th.

To kick-off the Design Sprint, the PNT Technology Showcase on February 26th will bring the most promising positioning, navigation and timing technologies from AF labs, industry, and academia together for presentations before an audience of members of the military and federal employees, industry, entrepreneurs, academia and venture capitalists.

A FREE Happy Hour will conclude the festivities shortly after 4:00 PM, allowing audience members and presenters to network with industry partners and stakeholders in a casual setting.

What is a Technology Showcase?

Technology Showcases are opportunities for inventors and innovators across all sectors – federal labs, university labs, and industry – to present promising technologies to audiences consisting of a wide array of interested parties, from military acquisition officers to venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, and anyone who enjoys learning about the latest cutting-edge technologies.

Each innovator will conduct a 10-minute PowerPoint presentation or other demonstration, followed by a 10-minute Q&A from the audience. After the series of presentations, the participating innovators will be available for smaller breakout sessions prior to the start of the Happy Hour.

Event Agenda:

1:00 Introductions and guest speakers
