Delivering adaptable capability at speed and scale to the warfighter

Apex is here to champion innovation and the rapid evolution of the US and allied defense industrial base.

Innovation requires evolution in the way our ecosystem interacts -  it requires a platform where emerging technology companies and SMEs are the bedrock, and supporting industry collaboration year-round is part of the deal, not just a moment in time. 

We are delivering a high-level, purpose built engagement and community fixed on the overarching objective delivering adaptable capability at speed and scale to the warfighter.

Apex isn't your typical conference or tradeshow.

Past Engagements

Brought to you ahead of Apex, January 28-29, 2025, to bring pressing topics to industry to spark conversation and provoke creative thinking to enable the ecosystem to come to the table with solutions.

  • Challenges posed by the likes of China, Russia, and Iran are too immediate to rely solely on long-term solutions. Today’s available military and commercial technologies are more than sufficient to counter threats and exploit asymmetric opportunities. Engagements like Apex will help speed up the process in a way that’s long overdue.

    Senior Fellow and Director, Center for Defense Concepts and Technology, Hudson Institute
  • Defence acquisition doesn’t need to be as transactional as I think its felt in the past: us against them. It takes people to be more transparent, to communicate more effectively and more frequently. Be in the room together. Find out what industry is building, how they're building it, and what their incentives are. No company can do it all; it's going to take an ecosystem of vendors to solve those problems. This is why Rowden is supporting Apex: we want to help set a new benchmark for technology provision to government and frontline operators.

    Founder & CEO, Rowden Technologies
  • We need solutions now. We can’t wait for a cycle of Defense R&D that we’ve traditionally relied upon to deliver those solutions… What is going to get a PM to move faster to decide to look at a requirement more critically and differently to accelerate delivery to the Warfighter.
