Past event: 2020 Human Performance & Biosystems Summit

Leveraging Innovative Technologies to Optimize Warfighter Capability

The 2nd Annual Human Performance and Biosystems Summit will provide a forum to discuss the current evolution of human capabilities due to advances in human performance research and the development of new biological technologies. This year's Summit will feature the latest updates and innovations in the areas of personalized assessment, education, and training, system interfaces and cognitive processes, and protection, sustainment, and warfighter performance.

Topics to be Covered at the Summit:

  • Enhancing Mission Effectiveness with Integrated Simulations for Mission Training
  • Developing Personalized Assessment, Training, and Education Through the Improvement of Personnel Selection, Training Design, Readiness Monitoring and Learning Techniques
  • Leveraging Biotechnologies to Improve Warfighter Performance
  • Understanding the Bioeffects of Emerging Technologies and Weapon Systems
  • Developing Human-Machine Interfaces for Enhanced Mission Success
  • Improving and Understanding Human Cognitive Processes
  • Leveraging Advancements in Human Systems and Biotechnologies to Improve Operational Medicine

Why You Should Attend this Year's Summit:

Our Human Performance and Biosystems Summit will focus on DoD initiatives to augment human systems through advanced training, biotechnology, and machine-human interfaces. Speakers from across the military will highlight their efforts to develop and deliver technologies to enable, sustain, enhance, and quantify human performance for improved mission effectiveness.  

Maintaining an asymmetric advantage in operational environments is a key priority for the DoD, particularly as the current threat landscape continues to evolve at a rapid pace. The advent of biotechnology and human systems R&D presents an opportunity for the DoD to grow and maintain this advantage through the development of optimized warfighter capabilities, training and augmented human performance.

Speakers at the 2020 Human Performance and Biosystems Summit will focus on efforts to leverage these emerging technologies to better prepare, train, and care for the warfighter. Attendees will have the unique opportunity to engage with senior policy makers, technology developers, and acquisition professionals about the capabilities most urgently needed by the military community.

Ou team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Summit's content and focus areas. We will assemble the most respected minds in the human performance community, including operational leaders, key policymakers, DoD labs, industry, and academia. Our non-partisan approach allows us to reach across all involved organizations bring together a truly holistic group of decision makers and solution providers.
