Future of Defense Summit



Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has shifted the national security landscape both at home and abroad. Defending America and our allies will require a multi-level, comprehensive approach.   

What are the Pentagon’s top priorities today and how are they planning to meet future needs? And what emerging technologies and innovations are most vital to securing our strategic priorities, both physical and digital?

The Hill will convene leading defense officials, policymakers, and experts for a focused discussion on America’s new baseline for its defense needs.
