*Please note: This event is classified, SECRET/U.S. ONLY. A security clearance is required to attend.

The goal of this three-day, classified Forum is to foster technical dialogue and exchange of information on current and emerging threats, and the aircraft technologies being developed and tested for surviving these threats. Given the current fiscal challenges facing the U.S. Government and Department of Defense budgets, the goal of this year’s Forum is to capture the critical ‘Pull’ of advanced and/or asymmetric threat technologies and tactics, and the counter-balancing ‘Push’ of budget realities on the development, integration, procurement and sustainment of the technologies and force structure required to project air power in the future highly contested air space.

In Cooperation with:




The Aircraft Survivability Planning Committee is currently seeking commercial and government table-top displays to enhance this year’s event. The objective of the displays is to provide a venue for showcasing unclassified capabilities on survivability enhancements, equipment, testing facilities and analysis tools as they apply to military and commercial aircraft and UAS. Displays and poster papers will be collocated in the unclassified space in the Kossiakoff Center.

While poster papers traditionally present details on specific project and technology accomplishments, commercial and government displays present general capabilities of an organization or system. Space will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. The purchase of a display space will include one event registration, a 6’ display table and chair.

For more information, please contact Mrs. Meredith Hawley, CMP, Associate Director, Operations, at or (703) 247-9476.
