Why you should attend this year’s Summit:

The 2019 Military Aviation Systems Summit provides members within the Military Aviation community, International Partners, Acquisitions Authorities, DoD Labs, academia, industry, and other critical partners a ‘town-hall’ style discussion to advance the strategic initiatives and operational capabilities required across the various military commands to ensure global air dominance, as well as assist the U.S. Military and Allied partners in performing and maintaining specific and joint aviation platforms for mission success.
The goal of this year’s Summit is to advance US and partner aviation capability and capacity. This year’s event will focus on critical acquisition priorities, cutting edge R&D, and the development of new technologies and programs to ensure aviation dominance. The Summit will feature sessions on cutting edge technologies to increase the capabilities of sensors, avionics, engines, and countermeasures for critical aviation platforms. Discussions will also focus on life cycle management efforts to improve the availability of aviation assets to meet the demands of operational commanders.
DSI’s team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Summits' content and focus areas, and we will assemble the most respected minds in the Military Aviation community, as well as key policy-makers across military, allied nations, and civilian offices. Our non-partisan approach allows us to reach across all services and organizations to bring together a truly holistic group of decision makers and solution providers.
