About the Conference

The Greater Hampton Roads Chapter of the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) and Christopher Newport University’s Center for American Studies jointly present the Joint Warfighting Forum, at Christopher Newport University, on July 15, 2019.

Multi-Domain Operations (MDO) have received increasing attention as the U.S. military considers future armed conflict. Emerging technologies like artificial intelligence, hypersonic weapons, nanotechnology, and robotics are driving a fundamental change in the character of international conflict. As multi-domain operations increase the complexity of the battlespace, it will require a highly adaptable and resilient U.S. and Allied response through the development of Doctrine, Systems and Tactics to ensure successful mission execution. This forum will address those efforts, including the role of industry and academia.
