The Joint Theater Air & Missile Defense Organization (JTAMDO), in support of the interagency homeland air security community and in cooperation with the National Defense Industrial Association, is pleased to announce an “Interagency Homeland Air Security (IHAS) National Capital Region (NRC) Demonstration” Industry Day. The purpose of the IHAS NCR Industry Day is to describe desired interagency capabilities and characteristics critical to the deterrence, prevention, or interdiction of aerial threats to the United States and to solicit industry for concepts and technologies to defeat terrorists from using air vehicles as a weapon to perpetrate attacks on the United States. JTAMDO has been funded through FY06 to conduct a series of demonstrations in the NCR where selected programs from Industry Day will be evaluated as solutions to capability needs.

The day’s main objective is to bring together developers of concepts and technologies in the areas of Air Surveillance and Sensors, Correlators and Trackers, Data Distribution, Communications, Decision Aids, and Data Fusion with field operators looking for ways to find cost-effective air security solutions. Representatives from all federal agencies working in air security plan to be in attendance.

The event will consist of a number of briefings, panel discussions, and poster sessions focused on conveying the government’s desired capabilities and characteristics for Homeland Air Security. Industry will be offered the opportunity after the conference to submit “White Papers” describing their concepts and technologies, as candidates for funding for demonstration and evaluation in the NCR . This conference will be held at the SECRET, US-only level.
