2013 IM/EM Technology Symposium

The U.S. National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) and the NATO Munitions Safety Information Analysis Center (MSIAC) are sponsoring a joint industry/government symposium on Insensitive Munitions (IM) and Energetic Materials (EM) at the Loews Coronado Bay Hotel, San Diego, California on October 7-10, 2013. The theme is “Delivering Mission Critical, Innovative Insensitive Munitions and Energetic Materials Solutions to the Warfighter in a Challenging Budget Environment."

New IM technologies, EM and formulations are being deployed into the field.  This symposium will look at the benefits of these new solutions on the warfighter, logistics, cost and safety of operations.  The 2013 IM and EM Technology Symposium is the premier international gathering for the exchange of information on advancements in IM and EM and their benefits in theater.

This UNCLASSIFIED program will feature presentations of technical papers that provide an overview of the technology advances from multiple national government services and agencies, international government organizations, private industry and academia.
