Maintaining our edge requires evolution. The Aircraft Survivability Symposium brings together researchers, warfighters, industry and government to discuss the latest survivability technology breakthroughs and challenges in a classified environment (SECRET/NOFORN).

Beginning with an optional day of tutorials going in depth on specific topics, the symposium features two days of keynotes, technical briefs and poster presentations discussing survivability technologies, sustainment and operations, threats, and counter measures. Extended breaks, lunches and other networking opportunities provide a forum for relaxed dialogue among senior level government and industry representatives, the armed services, and academia. NDIA's Combat Survivability Division will present awards in recognition of superior contributions to combat survivability in the areas of leadership, technical achievement, and the contributions of young professionals.

The call for abstracts, poster presentations and award nominations will open in early spring 2019. Conference registration will open later in 2019.

Sponsorship opportunities are available - contact Kimberly Williams, kwilliams@ndia.org, for further information.

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.
