Developing and Deploying DE Capabilities to Meet Emerging National Security Needs
IDGA’s 4th Annual Directed Energy Systems Summit will provide a means to discuss the ongoing efforts to develop and deploy directed energy systems in support of U.S. national security priorities and battlefield superiority.
Directed Energy systems and weapons offer a unique response to rapidly emerging global threats, one that has grown in popularity across the Services, DoD, and the Federal Government. As a force multiplier, DE weapons and systems offer numerous capabilities and applications across a multitude of operating environments, and at this summit, you will have the opportunity to learn more about DoD and Military Service roadmaps, the role of DE for national security, future force development, to include DE solutions for the warfighter, acquisition priorities, and more.
Join IDGA’s 4th Annual Directed Energy Systems Summit for the unique opportunity to collaborate and network with key leaders, solutions providers, and subject matter experts across the DE industry.
