All > Air Force

Every year, the Potomac Officers Club organizes government contracting events where U.S. Air Force leaders talk about modernization programs and how the domestic industry can help advance priorities at the service branch.

Looking back: Notable POC Air Force Events

  • During the “Multi-Domain Battle Forum” in November 2018, leaders from the Air Force discussed the challenges and strategic opportunities facing multi-domain operations. The in-person event in Tysons, Virginia, also featured a panel discussion on how the military and the defense industry could work together to accelerate MDC2 adoption.
  • The virtual “2021 JADO Forum” convened experts from the Department of Defense and industry to talk about the warfighting concept known as Joint All Domain Operations, which the DOD envisions as a convergence of all warfare domains with integrated technologies for the military.
  • The “2021 Air Force Acquisition Forum” facilitated a virtual discussion among top USAF officials and commercial leaders on the technological and material requirements of the service branch’s planned transition to a digitally enabled fast acquisition process.
