About the Workshop: Sponsored and Hosted by Lockheed Martin

Join us at Lockheed Martin’s Global Vision Center in Arlington, VA! This two-day workshop, focused on FHE for Defense Applications, will explore opportunities in new and emerging areas that can be improved with the benefits of flexible hybrid electronics – flexible, thin, conformable devices and systems – and will examine future applications now in development. The workshop includes a networking reception at the Lockheed Martin Space Experience Center and will conclude with technology-focused breakout sessions for NextFlex members and government partners.
