This year, the 63rd Annual NDIA Fuze Conference has its sights set on the future of the development, production, and performance of fuzes as they relate to defense and national security. While warfare is becoming increasingly complex, the continued and enhanced exploration of fuzing is critical. Through its facilitation of effective and productive collaboration between industry, government, and academia during classified and unclassified sessions, the Fuze Conference advances the field and art of fuzing for the benefit of our current and future warfighters.

Registration is scheduled to open soon.

*Please note: This event is open to the press except for closed sessions. More information will be provided as the event approaches.

NDIA has a policy of strict compliance with federal and state antitrust laws. The antitrust laws prohibit competitors from engaging in actions that could result in an unreasonable restraint of trade. Consequently, NDIA members must avoid discussing certain topics when they are together – both at formal association membership, board, committee, and other meetings and in informal contacts with other industry members: prices, fees, rates, profit margins, or other terms or conditions of sale (including allowances, credit terms, and warranties); allocation of markets or customers or division of territories; or refusals to deal with or boycotts of suppliers, customers or other third parties, or topics that may lead participants not to deal with a particular supplier, customer or third party.
