This is NDIA’s 10th Annual IAMD event on a critical national defense topic, and the subject of an increasingly important and continuously growing new body of military art: The State of Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD).  This annual symposium event, since its beginning, is a team effort of the NDIA Strike, Land Attack and Air Defense Division along with the NDIA Missile Defense Division.

Our theme this year, “Defense Against Emerging Threats,” highlights what you’ll learn about critical IAMD systems and initiatives and what you’ll gain from our high-level speakers.

This classified (SECRET NOFORN), no-media-allowed, not-for-attribution Symposium will give you the latest unfiltered, unvarnished straight talk and discussion about the priorities and challenges from the Missile Defense Agency, the Services, the Joint Staff, and other IAMD Stakeholders regarding the current state of Integrated Air and Missile Defense, and shared visions for the future.

When you join us for our annual “high-data-rate,” one-day “State of IAMD” event, you will get valuable, “off the record” insights and information from key decision makers within the IAMD community.

As in the first nine of our “State of IAMD” symposia, our tenth IAMD event is being held at the Kossiakoff Conference Center of the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, conveniently located in nearby Laurel, MD, on Thursday, the 11th of July 2019.

Don’t miss this once-a-year chance to get an inside take on the latest on IAMD --- especially if you are a government, military, or industry technical and engineering professional.  Take advantage of this exclusive opportunity to connect with the people you need to meet and learn what you need to know from the people in-the-know from current IAMD systems, to those now in development and those planned for the future.

 *Please note: This event is closed to the press.
