The Office of Rapid Response Technologies of the US Department of Defense intends to hold a “Virtual Meeting to Find Solutions” with developers of new technologies in the fall of 2021.
Based on its results, a number of innovative companies may be asked to make pilot samples or conduct experimental research. In the published document, which RT got acquainted with, it is noted that the department is looking for projects to provide “breakthrough opportunities” for the Pentagon.
“The Office of Rapid Response Technologies is in search of ultra-innovative technologies that can potentially provide breakthrough capabilities to confront virtually equal opponents by 2028 and fill the gaps in important joint missions,” the US Department of Defense said in a document.
As noted, during the event scheduled for the fall, developers will be able to speak to government representatives with presentations about their technologies.
The main attention is planned to be paid to ideas related to the areas of modernization of the Pentagon. Among them are artificial intelligence, 5G technologies, as well as space, quantum, hypersonic and cyber technologies.
