Hello from the 2022 Atlantic Future Forum in New York! 

We’re excited to have partnered with the 2022 Atlantic Future Forum in New York and contribute to the next phase of national defence innovation as part of a focus to support critical mission outcomes with technology, which we believe will preserve our socioeconomic prosperity.

During the two-day event that runs 28-29 September, we’ll see government, military and business gather to discuss the emerging dimensions of international security and the role of innovation in shaping future protection.

Innovation through science and technology is a constantly evolving beast. And this advancement within areas including cyber, space, defence and mobility is necessary to protect against online and offline attacks. That’s why Plexal is committed to supporting and collaborating with government, big tech and startups – like the 36 companies who have joined our latest Cyber Runway accelerator.

Fundamentally, the remit of national security has expanded and cyber is just one technical component of defence. With more of the right emerging technologies in place, we can better defend the country’s critical national infrastructure, supply chains and mission outcomes. This presents an opportunity for more collaboration between government departments and longstanding prime suppliers, with the addition of startups and innovators.

As we board the HMS Queen Elizabeth, our head of innovation and CCO Saj Huq has shared fresh thoughts with Open Access Government on how the government can deal with tomorrow’s threats and strengthen national security through better technology, ideas and innovation.
