The NATO Communications and Information (NCI) Agency is touching down in Austin, Texas, United States in March.
The NCI Agency will be presenting at South by Southwest (SXSW) on 18 March 2020 on how NATO is evolving to keep its technological edge. The Agency's presentation will highlight NATO's ongoing work in space, data science and cyber security, and will allow time for questions.
Kevin J. Scheid, NCI Agency General Manager, said:
“We look forward to introducing the Agency – NATO's technology lead – to the Austin tech community. Join us to learn about how we are maintaining NATO's edge in critical areas such as space, data science and cyber security."
Hear how the NCI Agency is driving NATO's digital transformation, and how your innovative ideas can support the NATO Alliance.
In December, NATO Heads of States declared space an operational domain for NATO. The Agency has been involved in space since the 1970s, but is now taking steps to create a NATO Space Technology Centre.
Laryssa Patten, Space Portfolio Manager at the Agency, said:
“The strength of the space industry in NATO countries, which produce cutting-edge technologies, contributes significantly to the space superiority of NATO. NATO is capitalizing on innovations from all businesses, academia and non-profits in this area to maintain our edge."
Learn more about the Agency's initiative to help the Alliance maintain its space superiority, and similar efforts it is driving in data science, and cyber security.
