The Army’s next meeting to discuss network modernization efforts with industry will be held Dec. 7 and 9 in Nashville, TN, and will focus on technologies to be fielded in 2025 and 2027, it announced Wednesday.

The December event will be the Army’s ninth such meeting under its network modernization effort. The event is hosted by the Army’s Network Cross-Functional Team and the program executive office for command, control and communications-tactical.

The meeting will inform industry’s research and development efforts for Capability Sets 25 and 27, suites of network modernization technologies the service plans to field in 2025 and 2027.

It will focus on “both Pacific and European theater of operations, including warfighter perspectives, lessons learned and lessons applied for unified network and data centric modernization priorities and experimentation,” according to the announcement.

It will feature sessions on specific technology efforts, including Family of Terminals, Unified Network Operations, data/cloud, waveform development/integration, modern security architecture approaches and more, according to the announcement.

At this time, the Army plans to host the event in-person without an option for virtual attendance.
