Counter-Hypersonics Weapons Summit

July 23, 2020 @ 8:00 am - July 24, 2020 @ 5:00 pm

Detect, Track, Defeat:
Advancing Counter Hypersonic Capabilities

The global Military build of hypersonic enabled capabilities and missile threats presents an entirely new defense paradigm that upends traditional missile defense notions entirely. Effectively tracking and defeating these threats is critical to our national defense strategy and protecting the Homeland. one that will only grow in importance as the race to hypersonic capabilities wages on.
Near-peer capability development of offensive hypersonic weapons has expanded on a rapid scale, prompting a massive uptake in proposed counter hypersonic funding from the Fiscal Year 2021 Defense Budget Request. Reaching an operational hypersonic missile capability is without a doubt one of the top priorities across DoD, but it is only half of the equation.
Building off of the success of our Hypersonic Weapons Summit series, IDGA’s Counter-Hypersonic Summit aims to enable a thorough understanding of the direction and efforts necessary to enable critical defensive hypersonic capabilities.
IDGA’s inaugural Counter-Hypersonics Summit will provide a senior-level review of ongoing defensive hypersonic efforts that bolster the United States’ ability to conduct homeland defense. Detecting, tracking and defeating hypersonic weapons will be a critical capability enabler for Military operations across multiple domains as these threats continue to evolve in complexity.

Due to the critical nature of the development of hypersonic weapons, IDGA must state that only U.S. Government, Contractors and Academia can attend this event
