Integrated Air & Missile Defense Conference

Washington, DC, United States

Multi-Domain Solutions for IAMD: Detection, Communication and Interception

Feelings of uncertainty remain in place as former, current and future threats against the United States, from North Korea, Russia and China, come to surface. It is crucial that the advancements, acquisitions and new developments of integrated air and missile defense systems become one of the top priorities of the US Armed Forces in order to protect our homeland.

With the government to increase integrated air and missile defense spending in FY19, it is with great expectancy that the procurement process, for new defense system technologies, hastens. The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) is requesting $9.9 billion in which the D.o.D is allocating $9.39 billion to unmanned systems - which is approximately $2 million more than what the government spent on them last year ($7.5 billion).

Join us this year to collaborate with industry experts and hear about recent trends, innovations and modernizations within the realm of integrated air and missile defense systems!
