VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WVEC) -- The 10th annual ADS Warrior Expo East is back at the Virginia Beach Convention Center.

The expo showcases the latest and most innovative equipment and technology for military personnel and first responders, including night vision goggles, protective gear, and field robots.

Atlantic Dive Supply CEO Jason Wallace said this event creates a partnership between the people making the equipment, and those who use it out in the field.

"It gets them together to really share experiences, and help create not only the products for today, but the products for the future," Wallace said.

The expo is being held on Thursday and Friday, and is only open to active duty military, government, law enforcement and first responders.
