Past event: Hypersonic Defense 2023 Conference

Hypersonic Defense is becoming a key issue for many governments around the world, especially with hypersonic weapons being threatened to be used in the battlefield. This makes the development of hypersonic defense systems pivotal.

The U.S. is leading the way amongst NATO members to develop hypersonic capabilities for offensive and defensive scenarios. The U.S. are leading the way with simulations, testing and understanding the glide path and strike opportunities.

During the 2-day Hypersonic Defence 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.
