NITEC17 highlights NATO’s $4.2-B defence tech wish list

NITEC17 highlights NATO’s $4.2-B defence tech wish list 

The theme of this year’s event is Sharpening NATO’s Technological Edge: Adaptive Partnerships and the Innovative Power of Alliance Industry.

“NITEC17 will be of interest to the Canadian security and defence industry because it will inform them on what are the future contracting opportunities in the pipeline over the next one to three years within NATO,” according to Peter Scaruppe, director of acquisition for NCI. “The conference will help Canadian industry understand the NATO system better – how we do acquisition, which technologies are in demand with NATO, and how to successfully take part in the procurement process.”

Vanguard Radio recently spoke with Scaruppe and during our brief interview outlined some of NATOs procurement needs and its current focus on building its cyber capabilities.
