FORT HUACHUCA, Ariz. – U.S. Army Information Systems Engineering Command (USAISEC) hosted a Technical Summit on Feb. 14 at Thunder Mountain Activity Center featuring approximately 25 companies displaying capabilities of advanced technologies for the Department of Defense.
Capt. Laramie Miller, a network systems engineer for USAISEC, said he walked through the conference to collect data points and fact sheets from the businesses represented.
“[USAISEC is] the government’s trusted integrator when it comes to deploying new systems,” Miller explained. “One of the functions of my group is to provide to the command at large future and emerging technologies, so they are aware of it and adjudicate if the technology is right for our customers.”
Representatives from the various businesses at the summit were available to provide overviews of the technical and customer service features their companies offered.
“We enhance the DoD workforce, and we make an easy job of it for military commands,” said Michael Franklin from New Horizons out of Tucson, Arizona.
“We help cyber security specialists comply with DoD regulations,” he said.
Franklin went on to explain that most technical businesses are, at times, multi-faceted with what they have to offer the DoD.
“I am from the consumer side of New Horizons,” said Jonathan Struebing, also from New Horizons.
“We are effective when Soldiers are transitioning from active duty and looking for further IT training, and we help them understand the military benefits that get them through school,” he explained.
Struebing also helps familiarize students with state grants available.
While perusing the technical services and businesses available, it helps to understand your individual or company needs, Miller said.
Companies at the Tech Summit offered a range of technical solutions, including security provisions, search engines, computing data, networking and programming, workforce development, training simulations and artificial intelligence platforms.
