A discussion with military leadership after the Virtual Space & Missile Defense Symposium
The U.S. space and missile defense community’s challenge is simple: stay ahead of the threat from nations such as China, North Korea and Russia. Across the Department of Defense, leaders are adapting existing systems to better counter the current threat, moving forward on major programs of record that improve nearly every element of the kill chain, and investing in next-generation technologies, such as radars, hypersonics and counter technologies. Defense News and C4ISRNET will host a virtual event on Wednesday, August 5 immediately following, and in partnership with, the Virtual Space & Missile Defense Symposium. In this special session they will explore the major lessons learned from SMD and hear from military leadership about their procurement and technology priorities to modernize missile defense.
