Field Programs


In FY20, Alan L. Freed Associates is offering a menu of one-day field programs that can be presented at military installations around the United States. The format for each field program is identical to the programs held on Capitol Hill. Please note that each program can be modified to address specific areas of concern to individual agencies/organizations. These programs are also available as online video conferences.

 

Program Description


Where do cyber and artificial intelligence (AI) fit into the near-term national security framework? This is a critical question at a time when legacy systems and missions still command the bulk of budgets and manpower at the expense of innovative technologies, structures, and doctrine.

This special foreign policy seminar will offer attendees the opportunity to discuss these critical issues with a group of nationally recognized speakers in an informal and off-the-record setting.

Areas to be covered are reflected in the topics below and may be changed to address current issues at the time of the seminar.

 

Seminar Topics


  • How do we exercise deterrence with cyber and strategic information dominance in the post-nuclear age?
  • How do we achieve a balance between legacy force structures and legacy doctrines with the unscripted new warfighting methods?
  • What is the impact of changing power capabilities and aspirations of major powers such as the People’s Republic of China and emerging middle powers such as Iran and Turkey?
  • Will the West retain sufficient aerial and space dominance in the coming decades?
  • How vulnerable are assets to hostile cyber and information dominance?
  • Is our AI Ecosystem—from robotics to unmanned vehicles—sufficiently ahead, or are lagging behind our adversaries’ capabilities?
  • How will advanced kinetic weapons such as hyper-sonics and anti-satellite weapons impact the Air Force mission?
  • The Strategic Implications of Quantum Computing

The exposure to these experts and their wide and varied opinions was fascinating for me. Making sense of the world we live in and overlaying that with U.S. national security interests is the “Kobayashi Maru” of our time…loved it!!!

T.K., Air Force • National and International Secuirty Leadership Seminar March 2017

The experience and breadth of knowledge of all the speakers was spectacular. Their chosen topics for discussion were absolutely relevant to this audience and we were provided several themes that help to guide our planning assumptions.

J.C., Joint Enabling Capabilities Command • Professional Development Course February 2017

Without a doubt the best seminar/training program I have ever experienced during 40 years in federal service. I would take this course once a quarter if possible and have all my people do so also.

USCG Attendee, White House Workshop • September, 2014

Format is terrific! Lots of speakers from across government enterprise and no power points. Plenty of time for engaging dialogue. I love to hear what experts and insiders have to say about out WDC enterprise.

J. Haywood, Wright Patterson Air Force Base

The speakers were excellent & the seminar was well-organized. I would definitely attend a future Alan Freed event.
