A marksmanship approach to scouting the best technology and products at WEE 2018

With so many things to do and see at Warrior Expo East this year, it's imperative to plan ahead in order to spend your time wisely!

Set Your Sights

“Remember, you can only shoot as fast as you can see.” (Sajnog 2013)

Whether you’re a Program Manager, Procurement Specialist or end user, the key to staying ahead of the curve is through continuous training. Training never stops at Warrior Expo. We provide a custom-tailored learning environment geared towards DoD, military, first responders and law enforcement. Make the most of your experience by planning your itinerary ahead of time!


  • Check out ADS’ blog for more information about trending products at Warrior Expo this year.
  • Sign up for anyone of our seven training classes available with topics ranging from domestic terrorism to leadership, streamlined procurement, and hand-to-hand combat training.
  • Plan to attend the Warrior Expo East keynote speaker, General James Conway, U.S. Marine Corps, Retired. During his speech, Gen. Conway is expected to address leadership, team building, crisis management, military energy sources, and challenges the United States likely will face over the next five to 10 years.
  • Register online and then attend for a chance to win a free UAV Pilot Training Course by Performance Drone Works. The curriculum informs participants on all things required for the safe and effective usage of FPV quadcopter drones for in-field use.
