Military IoT & Sensors Summit: April 3-4, 2019 | Alexandria, VA 

The 2019 Military IoT and Sensors Summit will provide a forum on how the continued integration of internet capabilities onto modern sensors are transforming the future battlefield. Currently, connected devices in the military are already revolutionizing modern warfare by providing greater lethality and survivability for the Warfighter, while reducing cost and increasing supply chain efficiency. This event will allow for relevant stakeholders from the community to detail ways to improve sensor capabilities and provide ways in which to secure them in the cyberspace, as well as assist in the development of IoTs throughout the DoD enterprise.

2019 Confirmed Speakers:


Lt Gen Christopher P. Weggeman, USAF, Deputy Commander, Air Combat Command



BGen Dennis A. Crall, USMC, Deputy Principal Cyber Advisor, Office of the Secretary of Defense

Why You Should Attend this Year’s Summit:

The 2019 Military IoT and Sensors Summit will provide a town-hall type discussion on how the continued integration of IoT technologies onto various sensor platforms across the DoD are further evolving the future battlefield. Modern day connected devices across the military are already enhancing modern warfare by ensuring and supplying the Warfighter with greater lethality and survivability. IoTs have also allowed for reduced cost and increased supply chain efficiency. This educational forum will also present opportunities for relevant stakeholders from the community to detail ways to improve the overall capabilities of sensor devices and provide ways in which to protect them in the vast cyberspace, as well as guide the development of internet throughout the DoD enterprise.

This Summit will allow for delegates to see how military IoTs, when utilized to their full potential on sensors, can open the door for vast opportunity to increase current capabilities, whether it be to for weapons systems or to assist a commander in making real-time decisions with actionable data. IoT devices will grow to over 21 billion by the year 2020, and the DoD and the IC must be proactive and ready to protect its personnel, data, and mission. This event will also discuss the current ways the DoD is working to protect its attack surface and the vast amounts of vital information that IoTs generate daily. Senior leaders at this Summit will also give an update on the IoBT REIGN Project and the push for a modernized network in support of the Warfighter.
