A one-of-a-kind defense technology and applications event with live-fire demonstrations for attendees, giving exhibitors the chance to demonstrate products and services onsite. This Expo will also feature night time live-fire filming on Tuesday evening.
The next Defense Applications Expo (DAX) will be held at the Osprey Training Facility September 21, 2022 in Council, North Carolina.
After a refreshment break the guests are broken down into groups and the round-robin begins with hands-on rotations. This takes place from 2:00 - 9:30 pm. The round-robin phase allows our guests to realize the effectiveness of our partners’ products for optimization of human performance.
The Expo is a fast-paced, intense event that requires rehearsals, F2F discussions and close coordination. Safety is paramount. A detailed Operational Schedule is being prepared to command and control the demonstration to include ground and airspace management (helos, STOL aircraft, drones), movement of assault forces, targetry, videography, live-fire actions, and administrative/logistical support.
Logistics drives the success of this Expo. New construction has been accomplished at the OTF and is still in progress to support not only this Expo but training opportunities as we move into the fall season.
