A showcase of military technology highlighting the work researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have accomplished with local technology companies recently brought a delegation of U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff members and other top Texas officials to campus.
The showcase featured about 20 displays of new, next-generation technology and innovation, most with dual-use military and civilian applications, including a car-sized drone developed by a Texas company that could someday be flown into combat zones or natural disaster areas.
UT Austin is a world class partner and destination for our military, veterans and their families. This includes active partnership with the U.S. military, academia and the private sector to identify and prioritize research in fields such as cybersecurity, artificial intelligence and robotics. The delegation is comprised of members of the Joint Requirements Oversight Council, a part of the Joint Chiefs of Staff – the body of the most senior uniformed leaders in the U.S. Department of Defense.
