Defense Technology Seminar (DTS) for Military Officers 2024

MIT Lincoln Laboratory, Lexington, Massachusetts

The Defense Technology Seminar is a unique Lincoln Laboratory–hosted seminar designed for military officers. The full, one-week seminar is a "booster shot" on the latest technologies for addressing challenges associated with peer and near-peer conflicts, counterinsurgencies, and special operations. A wide variety of topics is presented in terminology understandable to those not involved daily with technology development. Demonstrations, tours of advanced laboratories and facilities, and talks on broad issues in national security by distinguished guest speakers are all part of the seminar. Attendance is by invitation only and is intended for mid-level officers (O4–O6) from all the military services and a select number of government civilians who must be U.S. citizens and hold a security clearance.
