Join NCOIC senior leaders and member-companies for an interoperability event that will focus on discussions about how to acquire a secure environment for collaboration using the consortium’s Interoperability Verification. It builds on the successful “Art of the Possible” demo held in December 2016 as part of the fourth-quarter NCOIC Board of Directors and Advisory Council meeting.

Our May 9 event begins with a meeting of the NCOIC Advisory Council; its members are senior government leaders and strategists with expertise in global interoperability. This will be followed by presentations, demonstrations and discussions on implementing interoperability. The event will end with a networking reception and a continuing exchange of information and ideas by attendees from both public and private sectors.

Speakers will provide detail on enabling collaboration across federated groups, ensuring the secure exchange of information, and achieving interoperability verification. NCOIC members will present capability demonstrations related to these topics and there will be a panel discussion on the key actions needed to establish the secure unclassified environments needed for cross-domain communication. Presenters include:

  • Richard Baily, Vice President and General Manager, Boeing Test & Evaluation
  • Mark Bowler, Chair, NCOIC Technical Council
  • Dr. Thomas Cellucci, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Cellucci Associates, Inc.
  • Kenneth Cureton, NCOIC, Director, Interoperability Verification Initiative
  • Maj. Gen. (Ret.) Koen Gijsbers, General Manager, NATO Communications and Information Agency
  • Scott Goessling Vice President - Cloud Services and Solutions, Burstorm
  • Didem Gurdur, Doctoral Student, KTH Royal Institute of Technology / Sweden
