Past event: Hypersonic Defense 2022 Conference

A new era of ballistic missiles is imminent with a rapid race to develop the latest hypersonic weapons systems. There is also a pivotal issue to develop hypersonic defence systems to protect against the potential threat.

NATO members are working to make sure the right capabilities are in place to defend from a hypersonic weapon. There is an importance to ramp up testing of a hypersonic flight vehicle and understand the capabilities which will in turn assist with helping understand the best areas to intercept a hypersonic weapon during its glide path.

During the 2-day Hypersonic Defense conference and exhibition we will look at the current ballistic missile defence capabilities of leading nations and the importance to fast track modernisation of the current systems. The event will also review the testing requirements, simulation and research of hypersonic warheads, international cooperation and public-private collaborations.
