Looking back to November, NDIA’s Combat Survivability Division was unable to convene for the 2020 Aircraft Survivability Symposium. As a result, the Day 1 tutorials were not able to take place—until now. This Spring, the Division is ensuring the survivability community’s ability to catch up and get ahead before this year’s symposium by presenting the two previously planned tutorials as well as two entirely new ones. These webinars will offer both new and long-time members of the survivability community the chance to further learn critical information and develop the foundations of the field.

This opportunity will be unclassified, enabling greater and more widespread participation in the four tutorials, each with a different and distinct focus:

  • Fundamentals of Aircraft Combat Survivability, led by Chris Adams, Mark Couch, PhD, and Rich Huffman, PhD: This tutorial will provide an introduction to the aircraft combat survivability discipline.
  • Fundamentals of Aircraft Cyber Combat Survivability, led by William Bryant, PhD: This tutorial will provide an introduction to Aircraft Cyber Combat Survivability (ACCS) as presented in a series of papers published in Aircraft Survivability over the last two years.
  • Introduction to Radar and Infrared Signatures, led by Craig Baucke and Gary Wollenweber: This tutorial will provide an introduction to Radar Cross Section (RCS) and Infrared Radiation Signature (IRS) from the Aircraft Survivability point-of-view with a focus on propulsion systems.
  • Introduction to Hypersonics, led by Danny Millman, PhD: This tutorial will provide a brief historical perspective of hypersonic flight and an examination of the fluid flow features that categorize a flow as hypersonic.
