April 25, 2024

DRS CEO, Bill Lynn participated in a panel discussion at the Center for Strategic and International Studies’ 2024 Global Security Forum in Washington D.C. on April 24th.

The topic of the panel focused on how the defense industry can ramp up to prepare and sustain the U.S. military during a time of war.  The question of preparedness by the industry is being asked from the halls of Congress to offices across the Pentagon and beyond.

Bill was joined by top leaders at the DoD and industry, including the Pentagon’s acquisition chief, Dr. William LaPlante, and Heidi Shyu, the DoD’s head of the office of Research and Engineering, and Anduril’s head of strategy, Chris Brose. 

The Global Security Forum is CSIS’s flagship annual security conference and one of the world’s leading conferences on global security and defense issues.  The Forum convenes leaders from the defense and national security communities to discuss the top security challenges facing the country and the world.  Each year the Forum features conversations with a range of senior leaders from the government, military, private sector, and think tank community to discuss the most pressing global issues facing the U.S. and its allies around the world.

As a leading defense company, Leonardo DRS has been the primary sponsor of the Global Security forum since the Forum began in 2009.  DRS remains the sponsor because the company believes in the importance of independent and open discussions that lead to our safety and security.

CSIS is a leading think tank based in Washington, D.C.  It is a bipartisan, nonprofit policy research organization dedicated to advancing practical ideas to address the world’s greatest challenges.
