USPAE Member Meeting: July 18-19, 2023

We are excited to announce that the annual USPAE member meeting will be held the afternoon of July 18 and morning of July 19 in Crystal City, Virginia, just a few minutes from Reagan National Airport. Please save the date for the opportunity to talk directly with U.S. government and network with our member organizations. All members are invited to join us in Arlington, VA on July 18 and 19 for this event that brings together government, industry and academia to help advance the country’s electronics capabilities and capacity. Register today as space will be limited.

A lot has been going on this year, with new government business opportunities and emerging defense needs. We also have many new members that extend our industry reach to semiconductors, secure technologies, metrology & analysis, display screens and more.

Defense Electronics Consortium

USPAE was awarded a U.S. Department of Defense contract to establish and manage the new Defense Electronics Consortium (DEC), which will work to bolster the security and resiliency of the defense electronics supply chain. The DEC provides a vehicle for DoD to work with trusted partners in industry and academia, including small- and medium-sized innovators that don’t typically do business with the DoD. Members of USPAE that meet the DEC requirements are entitled to become consortium members at no additional cost.
