The AIAA Defense and Security Forum (AIAA DEFENSE Forum), AIAA’s only classified event, is focused on
strategic, programmatic, technical topics and policy issues pertaining to
aerospace, defense, and weapons systems.
The objective of the AIAA DEFENSE Forum is to create a
secure forum for leaders from U.S. government, military, industry, and academia
to explore complex defense challenges and to discuss solutions to these
challenges and other national defense issues. The intersection between defense
policy and technical advancements will be examined during interactive and
lively programmatic and technical discussions. Experts will present the
technological breakthroughs and innovations that are likely to affect the approach
to and the designs of next-generation defense systems.
This forum brings together on the same stage the best of long-standing AIAA
technical conferences as well as discipline subject-matter experts and an
insightful high-level plenary program where matters of strategy and policy are
discussed. In addition to technical and plenary sessions, there are numerous
networking opportunities for attendees throughout the forum.
