Step Inside A Submarine or Train Like A Pilot With The Military At Otronicon

Discover How The Military Relies On Cutting Edge Technology and People in STEM Careers

The military has driven some of the most recognizable technological advances in the world. The Internet, radar tracking, and EpiPens would not exist today without their military origins. From cutting-edge flight simulators to engineering practices, Otronicon is pleased to offer unprecedented access to innovative technology from the military, produced right in Central Florida. This is a thrilling opportunity to see and use technology that is far beyond the everyday consumer market.

Here’s what you can expect from some of the presenters during Otronicon, January 18 – 21, 2019!

Please note that some of these exhibitors may only be present on select days.

Military Exhibitors
