WBI attended the SAFE Association 57th Annual Symposium 14-16 October, 2019. Composed of Government, Military, Industrial, and Academic interests, SAFE represents aviation, space, land, and marine safety disciplines for the protection of users worldwide.

By providing an internationally attended marketplace for the exchange of technical information, product and service exhibitions, and the showcasing of industry capabilities, networking at the symposium was beneficial in identifying industry collaborators that could potentially provide solutions that address current and future project needs for AFLCMC/WN (Agile Combat Support), AFLCMC/WL (Mobility), and USSOCOM. Identifying potentially "ready to go" solution providers dramatically accelerates the process of solving the customer's needs and gets solutions to the warfighter.

Several potential industry partners were identified and introduced to the existing project needs for AFLCMC/WN and WL and have been directed to the FBO.Gov postings to propose their solutions. Additionally, subject matter experts were identified to contribute to a new project for USSOCOM.
