13:00 - 13:30 EST Afternoon Networking Break & Speaker Q&A

Academia and industry play an integral role in supporting one of the DoD’s top modernization priorities: hypersonics. The delivery of high-speed weapons at scale and defenses against peer competitors must be rapidly transitioned into programs of record to get them into the hands of our warfighters faster. This panel session will focus on how the collaboration of industry, DoD, and our nation’s top academic institutions will provide innovative capability to our warfighters. University led research can accelerate solutions to hard problems in hypersonics and transition these capabilities to the DoD for test and integration into operational systems. In parallel, these partnerships are creating a curricula that combines rigorous academic training with applied research to develop the future hypersonic workforce.
