Counter Hypersonic Summit 2020
July 23 - July 25
The global proliferation of hypersonic weaponry, missile threats can travel across the atmosphere five times faster than the speed of sound, presents an entirely new defense paradigm that upends traditional missile defense notions entirely. Effectively tracking and defeating these threats is critical to our national defense strategy, one that will only grow in importance as the race to hypersonic capabilities wages on.
Near-peer capability development of offensive hypersonic weapons has expanded on a rapid scale, prompting a massive uptake in proposed counter hypersonic funding from the Fiscal Year 2021 Defense Budget Request. Reaching an operational hypersonic missile capability is without a doubt one of the top priorities across DoD, but it is only half of the equation.
Building off of the success of our Hypersonic Weapons Summit joined by the likes of General Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, The Honorable Thomas Modly, Acting Secretary of the Navy, and many more esteemed representative, IDGA’s Counter-Hypersonic Summit aims to enable a thorough understanding of the direction and efforts necessary to enable critical defensive hypersonic capabilities.
IDGA’s inaugural Counter-Hypersonics Summit will provide a senior-level review of ongoing defensive hypersonic efforts that bolster the United States’ ability to conduct homeland defense. Detecting, tracking and defeating hypersonic weapons will be a critical capability enabler for Military operations across multiple domains as these threats continue to evolve in complexity.
