The 29th Annual TechNet Asia-Pacific (TNAP) Conference and Exposition, the largest of its kind in the region, was held December 9 through 11, 2014, at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Waikiki in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Themed this year as “Assured Interoperability,” keynote speakers, panel moderators and panelists discussed defense policies and challenges in the Asia-Pacific region and their relevance to both Industry and Government. 150 industry exhibitors demonstrated products and solutions to meet the Services’ requirements and needs. Student exhibitors from around the state displayed their robotics and cyber projects.
