Aircraft Survivability Symposium 2019 is a SECRET/U.S. ONLY event that will include Survivability Tutorials and presentations by Senior Keynotes from government and Industry, the armed services, industry and academia.  These presenters will discuss survivability technologies, survivability sustainment and operations, threats and counter measures and warfighter lessons learned from recent combat experiences.  Government and industry keynotes will present talks on survivability related areas that will set the overall tone for the symposium content.  Additionally, the symposium will include warfighter’s to provide firsthand information on survivability effectiveness in today’s fight which will inform solutions for tomorrow’s challenges.

The Symposium will begin on Tuesday, November 5, 2019 and run through Thursday, November 7, 2019. The first day will offer Survivability Tutorials from a wide range of topics.  The Symposium presentations will start on the second day, with an opening Keynote address from a Government leader, followed by presentation sessions on key topic areas.  The third day will open with an Industry leader Keynote address, followed by technical sessions on survivability related subjects.  Technical presentation sessions will include design, operational experience, threats current and future, reliability and maintenance, and testing of aircraft survivability technologies.  During both days of presentations, the Symposium will have a technical poster papers area where additional content can be viewed and discussed outside of the formal session presentations. The event will feature displays and extended breaks, and is specifically structured to facilitate relaxed dialogue and continuous networking opportunities among Attendees. Finally, NDIA’s Combat Survivability Division (CSD) will recognize individual technical and leadership achievements in a formal awards ceremony during lunch on the third day. 

The NDIA has a policy of strict compliance with federal and state antitrust laws. The antitrust laws prohibit competitors from engaging in actions that could result in an unreasonable restraint of trade. Consequently, NDIA members must avoid discussing certain topics when they are together – both at formal association membership, board, committee, and other meetings and in informal contacts with other industry members: prices, fees, rates, profit margins, or other terms or conditions of sale (including allowances, credit terms, and warranties); allocation of markets or customers or division of territories; or refusals to deal with or boycotts of suppliers, customers or other third parties, or topics that may lead participants not to deal with a particular supplier, customer or third party.
