Opening Remarks

United States Pacific Command (USPACOM) is one of six geographic combatant commands defined by the Department of Defense's Unified Command Plan (UCP). As a geographic combatant command, USPACOM is in charge of using and integrating United States Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps forces within the USPACOM area of responsibility (AOR) to achieve U.S. national security objectives while protecting national interests. The USPACOM AOR covers more of the globe of any of the other geographic combatant commands and shares borders with all of the other five geographic combatant commands. The commander of US Pacific Command reports to the President of the United States through the Secretary of Defense and is supported by multiple component and sub-unified commands including: U.S. Forces Korea, US Forces Japan, U.S. Special Operations Command Pacific, U.S. Pacific Fleet, U.S. Marine Forces Pacific, U.S. Pacific Air Forces and U.S. Army Pacific. PACAF is responsible for Air Force activities spread over half the globe in a command that supports more than 46,000 Airmen serving principally in Japan, Korea, Hawaii, Alaska and Guam.

For over 60 years the Department's investment mechanism for staying at the forefront of defense‐essential manufacturing capabilities has been the DoD Manufacturing Technology program (ManTech). The program reduces acquisition and total ownership costs by developing, maturing, and transitioning key manufacturing technologies. The DoD ManTech program is comprised of individual component ManTech programs in the Departments of Army, Navy, Air Force, the Missile Defense Agency, the Defense Logistics Agency, and the Defense-wide Manufacturing Science & Technology Program managed by the Secretary of Defense. ManTech touches all aspects of military technology and, with the new Manufacturing USA Innovation Institutes, is pioneering manufacturing technology in defense critical technology sectors. A brief overview of the DoD ManTech program including the DoD Manufacturing USA Institutes will be presented.

Breaking Through with your Breakthrough - How communication can help accelerate innovation and speed decisive advantages to the warfighter

Communication plays a vital role in advancing science and technology from concept to capability. Conveying the warfighting value of research builds the advocacy essential for new ideas. Conventional wisdom about communication, however, overlooks the adverse effects of stress that innovation can place upon the status quo. This presentation will help innovators understand how principles of risk communication can help gain informed support to "break through with their breakthrough."

Operational Energy

Fifteen years ago USMC Lieutenant General James Mattis famously asked the SECDEF to "unleash us from the tether of fuel." Now SECDEF Mattis faces many of the same challenges today, especially in the Indo-Asia-Pacific area of responsibility where the tyranny of distance and the presence of near peer competitors put a premium on intelligent and efficient operational energy processes. Learn about these challenges firsthand from national leaders on the subject.

Technology: Can We Get the Global Network of Navies to Work?

Naval coalitions have been important in ensuring the peace and stability of the oceans for well over two millennia. Today, the Global Network of Navies, supported by a wide array of nations who have sent delegations to this conference, continues this tradition. But as the navies of individual nations insert new technologies to ensure their ships can communicate better within their own navies, they may be impeding the ability to communicate between navies in the same coalition. The USPACOM S&T community can lead the effort to find an effective solution.

New Command Programs and Research in Control System Cybersecurity

Critical Infrastructure that keeps military missions operational could be vulnerable to deliberate disruption. Recent international actions, such as the shutdown of the Ukrainian Power Grid via cyber-attack, have validated that our DOD energy infrastructure is vulnerable. There are numerous programs both underway and recently completed to improve resiliency and cyber protection of military installations. This session will provide an overview of several programs, to include a status and results to date.
