“Emerging Armaments: Kinetic to Electromagnetic and Other Defeat Mechanisms on Target”

The Unconventional Emerging Technology Armament Systems Committee technology focus areas include (but not limited to) electromagnetics, lasers, high-power microwave, nonlethal counter-personnel and counter-material, hypersonic, sensor defeat (including spectrum denial), and other emerging armament technologies. This committee addresses matters of enabling technologies, integration, analysis and simulation, training, mission application, operational considerations and safety across the technology focus areas. Unconventional Emerging Technology Armament Systems Committee scope shall include technologies, systems, capabilities, and applications that encompass a wide range of alternative combat effects and target defeat technologies across the full spectrum from non-lethal to full lethality and scalable effects against personnel, structures and equipment.
