DoD Hypersonic Capabilities Symposium 2020

  • April 22-23, 2020
  • Alexandria, VA, United States

Our 2nd DoD Hypersonic Capabilities Symposium will emphasize the continued need to develop American hypersonic technologies and leverage these technologies to achieve U.S. National Security goals. Hypersonic Missiles and Glide Vehicles have the potential to be game-changing weapons that could cause the US to rethink its posture and strategy across the globe. The 2020 Hypersonics Symposium will facilitate discussions to accelerate the acquisition of hypersonic platforms that will provide the United States the capabilities to maintain the balance of global power.

Why You Should Attend This Year's Symposium

This educational symposium will bring together senior DoD officials, military leaders, academia, and solution providers to explore emerging concepts and capabilities in hypersonic weapons and systems in both offensive and defensive measures. The hypersonic market is predicted to be have sales of over $5 billon by the mid 2020's and is the main priority of development for the Pentagon according to Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering Michael Griffin. hypersonic technology has the potential to be a ground-breaking technology that changes the way future wars are fought and the balance of global power.

Our 2020 DoD Hypersonic Capabilities Symposium will emphasize the pressing need to develop offensive and defensive hypersonic technologies to counter and gain a lead on Russian and Chinese technological advances in this field. Hypersonic Missiles and Glide Vehicles can bypass conventional missile defense systems and pose a threat to US Forces across ground, air, and sea. Developing counter measures, as well as missiles of our own will provide the United States with the deterrence needed to prevent an attack against its forces and help maintain its place as the dominant global force.

This symposium will feature senior level discussions that emphasize the critical need for the rapid acquisition and development of hypersonic capabilities across all services. This program will allow for open and honest dialogue to solve the nation's most difficult technical and strategic challenges.
