The new administration brings with it a renewed priority for missile defense. Over the past decade, the threat has become more ominous and widespread with the proliferation of missile expertise, technology, and complete weapon systems that could target not only our national security, but also that of our closest allies. There is a growing realization that our technology base is in disrepair and is in need of an infusion of funding and fresh ideas. The opportunity window is wide open for technologists to help lead us into the next generation of missile defense technologies.
The intent of this conference is to promote the free exchange of classified information between engineers and scientists who work in the missile defense arena. This annual event was initiated in 1992 and has become the only one of its kind that addresses all missile defense technologies together in a classified forum. This will be our second year of hosting the conference entirely at the conference hotel. It is our hope that with the collocation of the exhibits and technical sessions, there will be more time for participants to interact.
The conference will begin with a plenary session on the first afternoon, at which attendees will hear from the BMDO leadership on the status and direction of the organization and the implications for technology. The plenary session will be followed by three days of classified technical sessions covering recent developments in surveillance technologies, discrimination and kill assessment, weapon technologies, lethality, and testing. The conference is aimed at scientists, design and test engineers, technical managers, and program managers from government, sensor and weapon manufacturers, suppliers, developers of subsystems and piece-part components, and academia.
