WIC Workshop 2019
The CRUSER sponsored Warfare Innovation Continuum (WIC) Workshop 2019 is scheduled for September 23-26 as a Naval Postgraduate School Thesis & Research Week activity to apply emerging technologies to shape the way we fight.
Background: Starting in 2009, the NPS warfare innovation workshops have addressed self-propelled semi-submersibles, maritime irregular challenges, undersea weapons concepts and unmanned systems concepts generation. Participants in these workshops are junior officers from NPS, the fleet, and other DoD commands; and early career engineers from Navy laboratories, academia and industry.
Workshop: Given the design challenge “How might emerging technologies support logistics in contested environments?” small teams of junior officers from NPS and the fleet, and early career engineers from Navy labs, academia and industry will propose technologies and employment concepts in scenario based discussions. Teams will brief their best concepts to sponsors, industry executives, and senior officers on the final morning of the workshop, and these results will be disseminated to fleet commands.
REGISTER to participate as a Mentor, Observer, or to apply for a spot on a Concept Generation Team
