VERTEX | Human Performance is an exclusive 2-day workshop to explore next-gen human performance technologies. Hosted by Army Futures Command (AFC), this market intelligence event brings together commercial innovators and US Army experts for a technical exchange on new and novel solutions.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Ultimately, the intent of this event series is to capture market intelligence for the Army that can be used to inform everything from concepts to requirements. That said, we thought it was possible to add value back into the ecosystem by allowing others to benefit from that market intelligence as well. The idea is to facilitate a meaningful exchange of technical information among peers across the public and private sectors.

This event is limited to 150 industry attendees, who will be selected to ensure alignment with the use cases AFC seeks to address through this event. To be considered for attendence, simply request an invite.

If your area of expertise is a good fit, we'll let you know within approximately three (3) weeks whether you are selected to participate. Please do not book your travel arrangements until you have received an invitation to attend.

Absolutely! VERTEX | Human Performance is designed for companies that don't typically work with the US federal goverment but may have a capability useful to the DoD, or companies that have done some work for the US federal government but have not reached a critical mass of sales for sustained engagements. Frequently, these companies might be considered "nontraditional" defense vendors, and we would love to see you there.

VERTEX | Human Performance will focus on two core areas that are important to both the public and private sectors:
