Tech Ten Presentations Featured at AUSA Global Force Symposium

Monday, March 23, 2015

Tech Ten, a program developed by the Association of the United States Army’s Institute of Land Warfare, will be featured at the AUSA Global Force Symposium and Exposition at the Von Braun Convention Center, Huntsville, Ala., March 31 to April 2.

According to AUSA officials, Tech Tens afford industry members with the opportunity to make brief presentations at the Association’s professional development forums, and have been “a dynamic and exciting addition” to the Association’s symposia and to the newly-developed AUSA Hot Topic program that premiered in 2015.

Lt. Gen. Guy Swan, USA, Ret., AUSA’s vice president for education who oversees the programs and activities of the Institute of Land Warfare, said, “The addition of Tech Tens to our overall symposium program and Hot Topic forums has proven to be a special and informative ingredient that puts the spotlight on industry research and development of equipment, arms and, most importantly, technology that is being developed for our soldiers of today and tomorrow.”

Adding, “This program fills an important gap in our already successful symposia and Hot Topic programs, and we will continue to ask industry support for more Tech Ten participation at our future events.”            

Scheduled Tech Ten presentations at the Global Force Symposium include:

- Sara Giddens, marketing coordinator, Miltec Corporation

- Rick Battani, Altair

- David Johnson, chief executive officer, Achates Power, Inc.

- Aubrey White, program manager, Center for Agile Technology, The University of Texas -- Austin
