The Brillance of Ingenuity

2019 Hypersonic Technology & Systems Conference

8/26/2019 to 8/29/2019

Event Description

Sustained hypersonic flight within dense atmosphere has substantial utility. Advances in underlying technologies and integration into weapon systems offer the DOD significant enhancements in its ability to penetrate heavily defended areas and prosecute time-critical targets. Other nations are also actively pursuing these technologies; as such, defense against such systems is also of increased interest. The technologies required to enable the reliable use of hypersonic vehicles are multi-disciplinary. This conference will bring together the best and brightest involved in the development of hypersonic technologies in a unique, limitedā€attendance forum which will facilitate knowledge sharing and collaboration opportunities. This conference will highlight the nation’s investments in systems integrated hypersonic technologies for both research and development and weapon platform integration for offense and defense. This event will be held at a restricted-access level. Attendance is limited to U.S. citizens with a final SECRET clearance.
