Contested Logistics Industry Week

Come see representatives from SparkCognition Government Systems

Event Summary

The objective of the Contested Logistics Industry Week is to help industry partners understand the Army’s priorities for delivering modernized Army 2030 and 2040 sustainment and logistics-related capabilities. Achieving this goal will allow a more precise focus on independent research and development investments that best address the Army’s sustainment warfighting function needs.

The event will conduct four panel sessions between industry and government subject matter experts, during which industry participants can ask questions about the Army modernization priorities as they pertain to contested logistics. Discussion topics will include:

  • Data/AI/ML education to enable decision advantage
  • Maritime capabilities
  • Power generation (demand reduction)
  • Advanced manufacturing

The event will also feature non-proprietary technological briefs, displays, and demonstrations. Industry partners will have an opportunity to present their capabilities to the government. For follow-on discussions that include “Industry Proprietary Information,” attending industry representatives can arrange for a one-on-one meeting with the government to discuss technology solutions that could not be addressed in an unclassified forum. Overall, the meeting will be at the unclassified level.


Angel Mesa and Art Sellers will represent SparkCognition Government Systems at the event. Get a technology briefing of our offerings, and learn more about our AI-powered Digital Maintenance Advisor.
