Main Conference Day 2

8:00 am - 8:50 am Registration & Morning Networking

8:50 am - 9:00 am Chairperson’s Opening Remarks

As our platforms become more inter-connected and capable, their threat vector inevitably will grow, elevating their ability to be attacked by adversaries for their gain. This session will highlight ongoing efforts to engineering cyber resilient platforms for GCVs.

- Engineering and technology challenges to be met to enable cyber resilient systems
- Challenges associated with A2/AD
- Partnership efforts to bolster UF capability and utilization
