ETC 2023 Joint Geospatial Engineering Seminar
This unique pre-JETC seminar brings together geospatial leaders from DoD, USG, Industry, and Academia discussing topics impacting geospatial engineers ability to enable location data as a weapon system supporting warfighting, contingency, and installation requirements. The aim is to expand Joint engagement and awareness of geospatial engineer processes and digital capabilities providing common operating data facilitating exceptional context, insight, and actionable information for operations around the globe. The capstone of this Industry-Government Engagement (IGE) event will be an out brief to the Warfighting Seminar participants, including but not limited to DoD’s Service Engineer Chiefs, Combatant Command Engineers, Service’s Installation Management Engineer leaders, and industry partners.
Location: Room 007CD

Contingency Operations Panel
Contingency Operations: Contingency operations often occur with limited or no-notice. These diverse types of operations include but are not limited to response to natural or man-made disasters, providing regional & local stability, or preparing for kinetic operating environments. The ability to effectively respond requires proactive Joint Information Preparation of the Operating Environment delivering advanced knowledge of the area of operation. This session will focus on ENGINEER digital preparation, capabilities and processes enabling timely reduction of challenges related to the vast pool of disparate data sources and tools, dramatically improving mission execution no matter the location, event, or mission partner.
Moderator: Col. Bill Haight, PE, F.SAME, USA (Ret.), Senior Vice President, WSP USA

Electric Vehicles: 3 Keys to Meet Federal Goals
In December 2021, the Biden Administration issued an executive order focused on reestablishing the federal government as a leader in sustainability and set a 2027 deadline to make all light-duty government fleets zero emissions. This means leaders need to act now to plan, design, and construct facilities that will support electric vehicle operations on military bases and government installations worldwide. This session will present insights from experiences planning and designing federal charging facilities.
Location: Room 217B | Presenters: Margaret Burcham, Army Programs Lead, WSP USA. Dana Lowell, Director, Center for Clean Transportation, WSP USA
