STAR-TIDES* Field Demonstration: 5 - 8 Oct

The National Defense University is delighted to announce the 4th annual STAR-TIDES* Field Demonstration held at Fort Lesley J. McNair, Washington D.C. from Tuesday, October 5 to Friday, October 8.

During this four day event, a wide range of capabilities that could be useful in post-war, post-disaster, or impoverished situations will be demonstrated in an open field environment along with examples from recent support to real-world contingencies. The event will take place
during regular business hours, so please join us at your convenience for an hour or two, or even all day.

Attendance is free and open to the general public. For more information, and to register for the event, please visit this link.

The focus is on active demonstrations of integrated infrastructures. All activities will be independent of the power grid, and communications will be live. We will feature four sections that each include a mix of shelter, water, power, integrated cooking, heating/cooling, lighting,
sanitation, and information and communications technologies, provided by a mix of USG, NGOs, and companies:

1) Stabilization and Reconstruction in Afghanistan
2) Disaster Relief in the US
3) Building Partnership Capacity in Refugee Camp Environment
4) Disaster Relief in Tropical Regions (Central America and Western Pacific).
