SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- The 50th Space Communications Squadron hosted the 2016 Tech Expo March 14, at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado.

"This is an opportunity for Team Schriever to come out and see the latest and greatest in emerging technologies that are Schriever centric," said Master Sgt. Miranda Gomez, 50 SCS section chief of cyber transport and one of the event organizers. 

The 50 SCS doubled the participation to 25 vendors this year. Featured technology fields included information security, cyber security, access control, secure storage solutions, data transfer solutions, security devices, mobile communication devices, video teleconferencing and supply chain management.

"The vendors were really anxious to come out and visit Schriever," Gomez said. "We worked closely with National Conferences Services Inc. as far as the coordinating the event and engaging with the vendors."

Lauren Peck, Tech Expo event manager, said the event brings together the industry community with the military community right here on base.

"It's a really awesome chance for information sharing to take place to see new technologies coming down the pipeline. We are always looking to stay relevant with Schriever needs," she said.

Senior Airman Austin Cooperrider, 50 SCS, was one of the attendees during the event.

"I thought it was interesting to see how vendors answer the questions related to problems they're trying to solve as well as how their tools can be applicable to us," he said. "Obviously, they're trying to sell their products, but picking through that, I can definitely see some positive."

Gomez said the Tech Expo is beneficial to the wing's mission of space and cyberspace. 

She said, "It's key if we are looking at being the cyber squadron of the future and how we will be setup in way ahead for cyber. We have to be up to speed in these technologies and ahead of our adversaries."
