Institute for Defense and Government Advancement’s (IDGA’s) Directed Energy (DE) Systems 2020 Summit will focus on the latest deployment, experimentation, and operationalization assessments of the technology to benefit the U.S Armed Services. Meeting the unique engineering challenges to deliver operational functionality will be very important to move this technology into operations, one that will be discussed at a senior-level viewpoint at IDGA’s DE Summit.

There will be U.S. Department of Department (DoD) and U.S. government speakers participating in the DE Systems Summit to include leaders from the U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, Under Secretary of Defense for Research & Engineering, Advanced Capabilities, Missile Defense Agency, DoD Non-Lethal Weapons Program, U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command, and more.
