2019 Directed Energy Summit


DE Summit

Event Date: 
March 20, 2019 to March 21, 2019
Booz Allen Hamilton
Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center, Washington D.C.

The fifth annual 2019 Directed Energy Summit is co-sponsored by Booz Allen and the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments (CSBA). Discussion will focus on the urgent need to acquire directed energy weapons to help counter significant existing and emerging threats.

Lessons learned from rapid acquisition and prototyping in the development of directed energy weapons demonstrate the maturity of the technology and the need to accelerate its military transition.

Delivering on the promise of directed energy weapons means placing them in the hands of warfighters to support our national security. Join in the conversation with representatives from the Office of the Secretary of Defense, Joint Staff, Air Force, Army, Navy, and Marine Corps, legislators, and the U.S. defense industry.
