Upcoming IPW Events

Precision Strike Technology Symposium (PSTS-21)

Date: October 19 - 21, 2021


  The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory Kossiakoff Conference Center

  11100 Johns Hopkins Road

  Laurel, MD 20723


The Integrated Precision Warfare (IPW) Division of the NDIA is excited to announce the return of our highly sought-after Precision Strike Technical Symposium (PSTS) in its classified, in-person format for the first time since 2019!

As the world shifts to multi-lateral Great Power competition, PSTS is a prime opportunity for us to come together as the U.S. Defense community to share our novel technical enablers, modern strategies, and insightful tactics to address the fast-paced cross-domain threat landscape.

The battlefield is changing: the proliferation of high-performance microelectronics enables affordable, autonomous, and asymmetric precision strike capabilities, both for us and our potential adversaries.  Further, the blurred borders of the space, cyber, and electromagnetic spectrum domains create a vast array of interconnected and interdependent battlefields, all of which we must control if we are to maintain our precision warfare edge.

PSTS is a must-attend event with intel-based threat briefings on China and Russia, classified advanced technological breakthroughs by DARPA and the National Labs, and the vision of the Services on the joint force of the future.
