Military, defense tech has become one of Orlando’s top industries

The defense industry has a cluster in Orlando.

Every year, Orlando hosts one of the largest military tech trade shows in the world.

The weeklong celebration often sees the debut of innovations that eventually make their way to the warfighter.

I/ITSEC’s decision long ago to come to Orlando helped form a robust defense industry cluster.

Each of the military branches’ tech research teams have a presence here.

Some of the largest companies, including Lockheed Martin and Cubic Corporation, have a workforce here.

Those companies’ presence here also has created an ecosystem that includes hundreds of contractors, as well.

They wanted to be close to the action to bid on high-value contracts.
