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 across the joint force. With China and Russia continuing to increase their funding and development of hypersonic capabilities the U.S. must continue to improve its own competencies and regain the spot it once held at the forefront of hypersonic technology.  

DSI’s 2021 DoD Hypersonic Capabilities Symposium will discuss the pressing for the need to progress hypersonic advancements throughout the DoD. As America’s competitors across the globe continue to expand their regional and global aspirations. 

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.
