Past event: Joint Fires Summit 2024

Modernizing the Strike Force for Sustained All-Domain Dominance

The 3rd Annual Joint Fires Summit will bring together the DoD, Military Services, Industry, & Academia to discuss how they are currently working toward delivering cutting-edge surface-to-surface fires systems that will significantly increase range and effects over currently fielded US and adversary systems.

Topics to be covered at the 2024 Summit:

  • Driving Army Modernization Efforts through Advanced Air & Missile Defense Capabilities
  • Providing Strategic Deterrence, Global Strike, and Combat Support to increase Fires Capabilities
  • Expediting Delivery of Critical Capabilities to Advance Fires Modernization Priorities
  • Delivering Integrated Air Warfighting Capability to Meet the Needs of Modern and Future Operation Environments
  • Modernizing Multidomain Fires Capabilities to Achieve Cross-Domain, Cross-Warfighting Strategic Advantage
  • Enhancing Pacific Fires Capabilities for Strategic, All-Domain Advantage
  • Increasing Resiliency and Agility of U.S. Army Field Artillery Systems to Deliver More Precise Effects on Future Battlefields

Why You Should Attend This Summit:

The 2024 Joint Fires Summit will focus on the technologies and policies necessary to modernize weapons systems and processes across the joint force as well as to develop and field cutting edge fires and strike capabilities to meet the growing challenges of strategic competition across the globe. These efforts are part of a growing priority as potential enemies continue to invest in their defense capabilities while also developing hypersonic and other standoff weapons systems.

At one point in time, the U.S. military boasted the best, most lethal, most sophisticated artillery and rocket systems in the world. But over several decades, it has allowed this advantage to erode. The ability to gain and retain air superiority led to increased reliance on fires from aerial platforms, both fixed and rotary wing. The U.S. Military is now pushing an anti-access/area denial (A2/AD) strategy. The need to have reliable and lethal systems capable of penetrating enemy area denial systems is a growing priority as potential enemies continue to invest in their defense capabilities while also developing hypersonic and other standoff weapons systems.
