The annual Operational Energy and Logistics Summit (OELS) was formed in 2019 to advance operational energy, logistics, and cyber capabilities and strengthen partnerships between military, academia, industry, federal agencies and labs to support the DoD's focus areas as outlined by the National Defense Strategy, National Security Strategy, and Department of Defense Operational Energy Strategy 2016.
Entering its 5th year, OELS is produced by TechConnect Division-ATI, in cooperation with the U.S. Navy Operational Energy Office, U.S. Indo-Pacific Command (J4 and J8), and U.S. Marine Corps Expeditionary Energy Office (E2O).
TechConnect events are known for bringing some of the newest innovations and startups into the government sector to build strong relationships and solutions for some of our Nation's most complex challenges.
In addition, we are now proudly a part of Advanced Technology International (ATI), the largest innovation funder in the nation with over $50B in prototype funding authority. This provides us with a capacity to bring industry, academia and government together, expanding opportunities to create powerful change.
