The 2017 Technology Innovation Breakfast series is an opportunity to bridge the gap between how Marine Technology Society (MTS) and Federal Government Agencies work and communicate. This member-exclusive event brings together industry thought-leaders and MTS members to facilitate the discovery of innovative and practical solutions to policy challenges surrounding marine technology. 
The next event will be held on October 31, in Pentagon City, Arlington, Va., from 7-9 a.m. and will feature a robust professional development program on the topic of The Future of Autonomous Surface Vehicles. John Waterston, program manager at DARPA STO will moderate a panel that includes:

  • Tom Perrine, AUSTAL USA 
  • Davis Sanford, Rolls Royce Marine North America
The breakfast is free of charge for members, and will delve into shipping, military, exploration, scientific data collection and the endless tasks associated with the next generation of autonomous surface vehicles.
The November Technology Innovation Breakfast is scheduled for November 15, and will focus on the topic of the future of maritime cyber security requirements. Registration is open for both events, as well as for the breakfast scheduled for December 6.
