#KEM Team Attends AFA Air Space & Cyber Convention 2017: Breaking Barriers Heritage to Horizon

#KEM Team Attends #ASC17: Breaking Barriers Heritage to Horizon. The nation’s premier event for defense and aerospace professionals from across the globe.

The #KEM team was excited to attend the Air Force Association’s 2017 Air, Space & Cyber Convention, September 18 – 20, 2017, in the National Harbor, Maryland.

Our team had a successful week engaging with senior Air Force leadership and connecting with our strategic partners and clients in industry and government while engaging in meetings, discussions, and sessions focused on the latest strategies for technical and tactical advantage, international partnerships and alliances, and reformed business practices critical for strong U.S. defense and national security.  

We were thankful for the opportunity to connect with our friends in Air Force leadership and industry, academia & aerospace partners to work innovative solutions utilizing and growing #KEM core capabilities and domain areas to critical issues and challenges currently facing the U.S. warfighter and the aerospace market.

#KEM continues to work supporting our nation’s competitive edge through our #KEM Domain Areas in Missile Defense, Cyber, C4ISR, and Space in a continued response to Secretary of Defense James Mattis’   key note address reminder of America’s two fundamental sources of power, “inspiration and intimidation”.
