This is the 22nd year that the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) has sponsored this event in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Defense. This conference will focus on improving acquisition and performance of defense programs and systems, including system-of-systems engineering, systems security, net-centric operations and data/information interoperability, and all aspects of system sustainment. This conference is sponsored by the NDIA's Systems Engineering Division, in cooperation with IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society, IEEE Systems Council and the International Council on Systems Engineering, and the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Research & Engineering (OUSD(R&E)).
This conference seeks to create an interactive forum for program managers, systems engineers, chief scientists, engineers, and managers from the requirements, design, verification, support, logistics, and test communities from government and industry. The conference will provide the opportunity to shape policy and procedures by exchanging innovative tactics and lessons learned.
NDIA’s Annual Systems and Mission Engineering Conference will explore the various roles of systems engineering from all aspects and perspectives—pragmatic, practical, and academic—and bring together key practitioners to work on effective solutions to achieve a successful and affordable warfighting force.
