The Cross Domain Technical Forum (CDTF) scheduled for July 21-23, 2022 is postponed until June 27-29, 2023 because of the increased CDC COVID-19 Community Level in certain areas of Maryland.

All registrations for the 2022 event apply to the 2023 event.

Because much of the information shared at the CDTF is For Official Use Only or Controlled Unclassified Information, virtual options accessible to all attendees are limited.

After two postponements, the NCDSMO was very much looking forward to collaborating with the cross domain community in-person this year. The NCDSMO continues to maintain and explore other channels for collaboration with the community. Please contact the NCDSMO at for questions or comments about CDTF or community engagement.

The NCDSMO is presenting a three-day forum that will focus on delivering information to attendees who work with cross domain technologies, services and solutions. Presentations will discuss cross domain solutions, services and technologies, and what new challenges are arising in today’s rapidly changing environment. Attendees will collaborate, build partnerships and advance their knowledge of cross domain technology.

For the past 11 years, the CDTF has successfully connected leading representatives from both Government and Industry to build partnerships and collaborate on the advancement of technical knowledge and opportunities specific to the Cross Domain community. We are committed to this effort and look forward to your participation.
