Actasys will participate to the 2016 Defense & Smart Cities Challenge Program.

Actasys will participate to the program in June 13-15 in Austin, TX.

Mega Cities and Smart Cities represent global vanguard communities addressing civilization’s resiliency pressures on a daily basis. These dynamic ecosystems are ideal innovation proving-grounds, generating private-sector technology solutions that may be applied towards military/city equivalents such as MOBs, FOBs, Air/Naval Bases, Fleets, and Vessels. Operational security and understanding of megacities is a priority for global security (disaster relief, nation building, coalition support). The Defense Resilience Program & Challenge features innovations and session topics focused on defense resilience and/or support future operational understanding within a megacity environment.
