The 2015 Global Force Symposium and Exposition, formally known as the AUSA Winter Symposium, and the 2015 Army Aviation Mission Solutions Summit are taking place in two weeks. The Global Force Symposium, occurring March 31-April 2nd, is located at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, AL while the Army Aviation Mission Solutions Summit goes from March 29-April 1st at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, TN. Even with the overlapping dates, RF System Lab’s VP of Government Programs, Joel Riling, will be exhibiting at both events.
A bit of background on both of these events, which RF System Lab has attended for a few years in a row now and are shows we do not want to miss:
- Army Aviation Mission Solutions Summit: The entire Army Community – Active Duty, National Guard, Army Reserve, Department of Army Civilians, and other industry reps — gather in an exhibit hall to find solutions for the challenges aviation warfighters face around the world. The symposium also features numerous networking opportunities, 16 hours of professional development, and over 300,000 square feet of exhibits.
- Global Force Symposium: This three-day event, hosted by the Association of the United States Army’s Institute of Land Warfare (AUSA ILW), features presentations from the United States Army Training and Doctrine Command, the United States Army Materiel Command and the Office and the Assistant Secretary of the Army. The goal of the symposium is to explore the capabilities outlined in the Army Operating Concept and how the force transforms from being adaptive to driving innovation for Force 2024 and beyond. It also includes a large exhibit hall and offers exclusive exhibit-hall-only hours.
Joel Riling is looking forward to providing more information at these events about the articulating VJ-Advance video borescope, a tool that is currently being used by every branch of the military. Attendees interested in improving their quality control and learning more about remote visual inspection can stop by RF System Lab’s booth at either of these events.

RF System Lab is proud to be a part of many different industry memberships. Industry memberships and associations allow us to stay up to date on upcoming annual meetings and conferences offered to members, as well as stay connected with the many industries we serve.
Because of this, we decided to feature memberships that we are a part of on the RF System Lab Inside Scope blog. Last month we gave you the top reasons to be a part of NBAA. This month, we’d like to discuss the benefits of joining the Army Aviation Association of America (better known as “Quad-A” or AAAA).
AAAA’s mission is simple: “Supporting the Army Aviation Soldier and Family.” The association provides many opportunities to show support and fulfill that mission through their membership benefits. RF System Lab falls under their “Industry Membership” category, so this blog will focus on the benefits offered from that specific type of membership.
According to the AAAA website, “The Industry Membership Program is designed to foster approved and meaningful interchange between government and industry. Corporate representatives have the opportunity to keep up to date with the changing Army Aviation community, participate in local and national meetings and to develop professional contacts critical to the corporation’s current and future programs and plans.”
Industry members also have the opportunity to participate in the many programs AAAA offers. The first of these opportunities include a subscription to Army Aviation Magazine, the official AAAA publication and the Industry Partners Directory, which gives an insight into the “who’s who” of the Army Aviation industry.
Another benefit of membership is that industry members are able to give back to those who served. AAAA provides industry members with two different ways to do this: The AAAA Scholarship Program and the AAAA Post-Career Employment Program (PCEP). The Scholarship programs give members a chance to make corporate contributions, recognized through the Corporate Matching Fund Scholarship Program that go towards scholarships and interest free loans to members of the AAAA and their family members. The PCEP offers industry members the opportunity to hire enlisted soldiers who are retiring or leaving active service to enhance their workforce. Through this program, the AAAA gives industry members access to many qualified, highly-skilled and disciplined personnel.
One of the exclusive membership benefits that we at RF System Lab find most rewarding is the AAAA Annual Forum. The Forum exclusively gives industry members the chance to exhibit and is also a great forum for networking with fellow professionals. In addition, AAAA sponsors several conferences and forums annually with more specific subject areas (Avionics, Electronics, etc.) that industry members are invited to attend.
RF System Lab is proud to be a member of AAAA and show continuous support for Soldiers and their families through AAAA activities. To read more about the industry membership benefits or to sign up for a membership yourself, you can visit the AAAA Membership benefits page.
