Exclusive opportunity for STC membership to engage with US Army tech chiefs

Silverstone Technology Cluster

30th November 2022

The US Army’s technology lead, DEVCOM, has called on STC business members to pitch their tech capabilities and potentially become part of its supply chain.

In an exclusive showcase capability event with the Cluster in January 2023, members will be asked to make presentations to US DEVCOM representatives, its Global Technology Advisor for the UK, Dr Patrick Fowler, announced at the STC’s Annual Conference.

US DEVCOM is the US Army’s combat capabilities development command and both its technology leader and largest technology developer.

Dr Fowler enthused: “We strongly encourage the Silverstone Technology Cluster’s business members to take part in this showcase capability event.

“Our event in January is in effect a ‘speed dating’ activity where, through five-minute pitches, businesses and our US Department of Defense (DoD) representatives get to find out about each other.”

More details about the showcase capability and location to meet with US DEVCOM figures will be confirmed in due course.

Note: this event is separate (and exclusive to the STC) to US DEVCOM’s own Xtech International programme which Dr Fowler also announced during the Conference.

STC CEO Pim van Baarsen said: “This is a really exciting opportunity for our members to engage in a new marketplace with a new partner.

“It is precisely one of the reasons that the STC exists – to create those openings and, in this instance in particular, to put members on the map with an organisation that is a huge player globally.”
