The Directed Energy Outreach Campaign has been successfully educating Congressional decision makers and Pentagon warfighters on RF and laser directed energy weapons technologies and capabilities since January 2009. This third year of DE2DC event was again a truly historic event and is sponsored by the Directed Energy Professional Society.
The DE2DC event displayed for and educated top lawmakers and military brass in Washington DC during the first week of April 2014. Applied Companies, along with Government and Defense Primes from across the United States, exhibited mature directed energy hardware at the Rayburn House Office Building and at the Center Courtyard of the Pentagon.
Applied Companies is a Corporate Sponsor of the Directed Energy Professional Society (www.deps.org). Applied also has HVAC and Generator hardware on multiple platforms in the DE field.
This third year of DE2DC is considered a significant event. Heretofore Directed Energy Systems have not been consolidated and synergized in one location. By exposure in the Antrium of the Rayburn Building and in the courtyard of the Pentagon many mature diverse but parallel technology systems will be gathered for viewing by decision makers on Capitol Hill and across the river at the Pentagon.
Applied Companies is the nation's most senior, privately held, military HVAC and Power Generation Woman Owned small business (WOSB).
