NATO's potential adversaries are fielding hypersonic weapon systems faster than anticipated; a reality that has brought the Alliance's own progress in this field, under great scrutiny. The potential to deliver near-instantaneous effect on the battlefield has highlighted shortcomings in existing strategic air and missile defence systems, and prompted a worldwide re-examination of traditional deterrence models. Unless NATO's members and partners can bring comparable capabilities online rapidly, they will be ill-equipped to deter and defend threats to their highest value assets, in-theatre and beyond.
Hypersonic Weapon Systems is a unique 2 day online event featuring live interactive webinars by international researchers, capability development professionals and tri-service operators from international missile defence and fires communities, all focused on the urgent development of both offensive and defensive hypersonic technologies. The programme will support the development of operational concepts and doctrine, whilst also engaging with technical subject areas including aerothermodynamics, propulsion systems, and air-breathing technology.
Join us in June 2020 to delve into cutting-edge hypersonic research and development activities, and be part of an international community which is evolving faster than the speed of sound!
