Calling all innovators!

Does your organization have a cutting-edge solution for current issues facing the DoD community? If so, this is your opportunity to get visibility for your ideas!

In an era of increasing requirements and constrained resources, the Department of Defense (DoD) must continue to embrace commercial innovation and the efficiencies it can provide. The Innovation Showcase is an opportunity for companies of all sizes to demonstrate groundbreaking solutions of interest to government and potential industry partners.

We have received problem statements from our DoD partners on the following topics:

Additional topics may be added as we receive them. Full problem statements are available below.

Submit your abstract on one of the above topics for a presentation on the exhibit floor and gain the broadest exposure for your solution among government, military, and industry attendees.

Problem Statement #1

Generative AI

Problem Statement: Recent improvements in generative AI models have very quickly resulted in an explosion of use cases for apps like ChatGPT and Dall-E. It is becoming clear that the ability to create original content using AI is going to change the way business is conducted in every industry. DISA is investigating how we can train a model like GPT-3 using DoD data to deploy a number of uses such as creating and validating code, identifying threats and vulnerabilities, and improving user and customer experiences in getting answers to everyday questions and basic troubleshooting queries.

Problem Statement #2

IoT Security

Problem Statement: On DoD networks, and on the Internet at large, there are an increasing number of non-traditional endpoints that require the ability to phone home for purposes like cloud storage of data and centralized management. DISA is investigating how to improve security of these IoT devices by better classifying IoT network traffic so that new security policies can be developed, and how to secure these devices against attack, both at the network level and on the device itself.

Problem Statement #3

Composable Security Architecture/Extended Detection and Response

Problem Statement: The goal of both Composable Security Architecture and Extended Detection and Response technologies is to better integrate with and offer native support for digital security approaches that involve a higher degree of integration and aid in enabling automation, orchestration to improve detection and remediation capabilities. This technology space will be driven by security vendors, product leaders and product managers looking to integrate security functionalities into their products in a more modular and open approach. This will allow centralized security policy to be deployed across a diverse set of vendor products via APIs. DISA is looking to determine the state of vendor maturity in these areas.

Problem Statement #4

Cybersecurity Compliance

Problem Statement: The protection of Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) resident in nonfederal systems and organizations is of paramount importance to federal agencies and can directly impact the ability of the federal government to successfully conduct its essential missions and functions. DoD is looking for inputs on tools and techniques that support industry in implementing and complying with NIST 800-171 standards in addition to feedback on barriers to adoption.

Why this is important: Answers to this problem inform DoD's prioritization of cybersecurity efforts.
