Why You Should Attend This 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 have sales of over $5 billion by the mid-2020s 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.
