Prepare to experience something that feels very different. There will be no models, no booths—this will be a dynamic environment focused on real, near-term challenges and opportunities, where months or even years of waiting in line to get noticed can be eliminated. Apex is the fusion of timely requirements with available, primed technology.

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.
