An Air Force forum to interact with the defense industry will address emerging air and space threats, weapons cyber security and acquisition issues, among other topics, Wright-Patterson officials say.

The Air Force Life Cycle Management Industry Days will conduct the annual forum at the University of Dayton River Campus on Sept. 13-15.

Attendees will be able to see presentations from leaders with Air Combat Command, the Air Force Research Laboratory, Air Force Sustainment Center, and the National Air and Space Intelligence Center, among other units.

“This event showcases the Air Force’s future requirements to industry, allowing them to strategically forecast their future capability investment,” Tim Frey, an AFLCMC representative and forum organizer said in a statement. “A by-product of LCID is networking opportunities that might not be available elsewhere.”
