Hypersonic Online Event Guide

Enabling Hypersonic Overmatch for US Multi-Domain Superiority

The age of Hypersonic Weapons is upon us. In light of ongoing efforts to rapidly enable next-generation hypersonic capabilities, IDGA‘s Hypersonic Weapons events series has been established to comprehensively analyze and enable the realization of next generation hypersonic technology and weaponry. Building on the success of our inaugural Summit, the  Hypersonic Weapons Online Event will provide a continuation of ongoing hypersonic capability development in order to capitalize on Military advancements and initiatives.

A hypersonic weapon fired from Washington D.C could reach Micronesia in just thirty minutes, which emphasizes the need to rapidly secure this capability as fast as possible. We are seeing swift developments across multiple hypersonic technologies that endanger current levels of battlefield overmatch for US multi-domain superiority. Of these challenges, the ones we cannot see, detect, or track provide the greatest level of threat, and that is why the development of hypersonic weapons is imperative.

As this capability and community continues to evolve from R&D, to the Labs and to the Battlefield, it will require constant discussion and ongoing reviews to assure development of hypersonic weaponry continues at the speed of sound!

Join IDGA’s Hypersonic Weapons Online Event for the unique opportunity to understand US Military senior leadership approach to the ongoing global proliferation of hypersonic weapons and capabilities.

Online Event Topics Covered Include:

  • Strategic Overview of DoD Acquisition and Sustainment Efforts for Future Hypersonic Dominance
  • Rapidly Fielding Hypersonic Capabilities to Deter and Defeat Rapidly Modernizing Adversaries
  • Hypersonic Defense: The Offense-Defense Mix
  • Advancing Challenging Aerothermodynamic and Propulsion System Phenomena Via Hypersonic Vehicle Simulation
  • and more
