The Army is hosting a "network-related technical exchange meeting" this month in Philadelphia for industry, according to a government notice.

The meeting, scheduled for May 24 and 25, will focus on the Army’s Network Capability Portfolio Review, artificial intelligence capabilities and command, control, computers, communications, cyber, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, according to the announcement.

The meeting will also feature discussion on the Army’s shift to division formation as the “unit of action” and how that impacts the capability set network design. It will include discussions of priority efforts for Capability Set 27 -- a capability set focused on multidomain capabilities such as higher bandwidth, anti-jamming capabilities, AI and machine learning capabilities, hardened 5G, dispersed mission command computing and convergence.

The event will also include prototype capability opportunities for industry as well as updates on other science and technology programs of record, the notice states.
