Join us Thursday, Sept. 29th, as Gen James Cartwright, USMC (ret), shares his perspective on national security in light of current events and security threats to our nation, in a program titled, “The Third Offset, Integrated Fires and Re-Platforming Weapon Systems.” The program begins at 5:30 p.m. after a networking reception, beginning at 5:00 p.m. at the new building of the Patuxent River Naval Air Museum.
Cartwright served as commander, U.S. Strategic Command, before being nominated and appointed as the eighth vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the nation’s second-highest military officer. During his four-year tenure as vice chairman, across two presidential administrations and constant military operations against diverse and evolving enemies.
Cartwright became widely recognized for his technical acumen, vision of future national security concepts, and keen ability to integrate systems, organizations, and people in ways that encourage creativity and spark innovation in the areas of strategic deterrence, nuclear proliferation, missile defense, cyber security, and adaptive acquisition processes.
Cartwright will discuss the concept of the Third Offset and the increasing threats in the Far East and Russia, and will provide insights on Distributed Lethality, Integrated Fires and re-platforming existing weapons systems in a “kill web” to counter the threat and extend range.
