As part of its new slate of forums, AIAA is organizing a classified and unclassified U.S.-only event for technical, programmatic, and policy issues pertaining to aerospace in U.S. national security. The objective of the AIAA Defense and Security Forum (AIAA DEFENSE) is to create a non-biased, non-partisan forum for defense officials to interact with industry partners, aerospace R&D community, and government decision- and policy-makers.
The AIAA DEFENSE Forum will bring together government officials, the contractor community, and the acquisition and R&D communities to address critical topics from a policy, program, and technology perspective.
Three AIAA long-standing classified conferences—AIAA Strategic and Tactical Missile Systems Conference, the AIAA Missile Sciences Conference, and the AIAA National Forum on Weapon System Effectiveness—will combine to lay the foundation of the new AIAA DEFENSE Forum.
What to Expect
More than 400 participants from government, industry, academia involved in policy, acquisition, disciplinary research, product development, system operation, and maintenance.
More than 300 papers focused on missile and weapons systems, testing, and defense.
The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) is the largest aerospace professional society in the world, serving a diverse range of more than 35,000 individual members from 80 countries, and 100 corporate members.
