VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- The Vandenberg chapter of the Armed Forces Communications Electronics Association sponsored a technology exposition to show Vandenberg a variety of electronic resources at the Pacific Coast Club here May 2.

The tech expo, which ran from 10am to 2pm, offered a venue for 25 companies to present Vandenberg with state-of-the-art technology that could potentially make the space mission more efficient, said Capt. Chad Leisenring. The 14th Air Force communication plans and resources officer worked in conjunction with AFCEA to set up the expo.

The companies came from as far as Hawaii to display their products at Vandenberg, Captain Leisenring said.

The products displayed during the annual event range from electronic copying devices to security and surveillance, said Preston Campbell, the Vandenberg AFCEA president.

This year's expo was unusual because of its attendees.

"The majority of people who come to see the companies at the expo are commanders," Captain Leisenring said "However, at this expo we have companies sending representatives from as far as Colorado just to see what the expo is like."

AFSCEA, which acts as a liaison between the new trends in the electronic world and the military, is set to hold a chapter luncheon from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. June 4 at the PCC. Those interested in becoming AFSCEA members may attend or click here.
