There are plenty of hints that interesting tech is being developed at Aberdeen Proving Ground. The Army facility to the northeast of Baltimore was one of the assets highlighted in an autonomous vehicle proposal, and emerges with the occasional hoverbike test.

But more times than not, it’s cloaked in an aura of secrecy.

In the near future, however, there’s a chance to hear more about what’s happening inside the walls. The Northeast Maryland Tech Council is holding a half-day event to provide more info about the technology, and hopefully introduce ideas for collaboration.

The event is set to be held on the afternoon of April 28 at the Bel Air campus of Towson University, and will include breakout sessions and networking along with talks.

The speakers who will present aren’t all from Aberdeen Proving Ground, reflecting the goal to put folks from business and government in the same room.

Gary Markovits of Innovation Business Partners will give the keynote. Tech topics include:

  • Autonomous vehicles, presented by Dr. Rajneesh Singh, Acting Division Chief of the Vehicle Applied Research Division at APG.
  • Portable Power and Storage, presented by Edward J. Plichta, a power and energy scientist.
  • Digital Agriculture, Joshua E. Arnold, Director of Business Development in Agribusiness at Battelle, will present on the use of sensors and big data in farming.
  • Augmented Cognitive Decision Making, presented by Aaron Warren, who works with IBM Watson in healthcare and government.

After the talks, participants can get together in breakout sessions and brainstorm how the technology can be used.
