NATIONAL SUMMIT ON HYPERSONIC WEAPONS SYSTEMS 2023
April 25 @ 8:00 am - April 26 @ 5:00 pm PDT
A Comprehensive & immersive DoD/Gov and Industry experience focusing on the Hypersonic Weapons Threat, Current Capabilities and Way Ahead Strategies for U.S and Strategic Allies.
Global Advancements in the development and testing of Hypersonic Weapons has outpaced the U.S. In fact, both Russia and China have aggressively developed & fielded Hypersonic Weapons, ultimately permitting successful near-peer enemy global strike capabilities.
Because of this global threat, the FY2022 Defense budget request for hypersonic research was increased almost 20% to $3.8 billion-up from $3.2 billion from the FY2021 request, with the Missile Defense Agency additionally requested $247.9 million for hypersonic defense.
With this in mind, we have created the National Summit on Hypersonic Weapons Systems Summit to offer an engaging forum which will comprehensively analyze and assist in furthering dialogue on the ongoing global proliferation of hypersonic weapons. Our summit will take a deep dive into the necessity of hastening the procurement of hypersonic platforms as well as the testing and fielding steps that will provide the ability to maintain the balance of geopolitical stability.
Join the National Summit on Hypersonic Weapons Systems Summit to explore and understand the DoD’s approach to the ongoing global proliferation of hypersonic weapons, as well as learn from senior level discussions on emerging opportunities, and needs and challenges within Hypersonic Weapon Systems technologies.
