This SECRET/U.S. ONLY event includes presentations by senior level government and industry representatives, the armed services, and academia.

Government and industry keynotes will present talks on survivability related areas that will set the overall tone for the symposium content.
The symposium begins with an optional day of tutorials (separate fee required) that go in-depth on specific topics.
In addition to presentations on the second and third days of the symposium, technical poster papers will be displayed. With extended breaks, lunches and a networking reception, the symposium is specifically structured to facilitate relaxed dialogue and continuous networking opportunities among attendees.
Finally, NDIA’s Combat Survivability Division (CSD) will recognize individual technical and leadership achievements in a formal awards ceremony on the third day.
Using the Naval Postgraduate School as our venue and co-sponsor provides attendees with the unique experience of interacting with researchers, industry and government decision makers, and warfighters on a classified campus to discuss what is needed for the fight today and plan for the survivability challenges of tomorrow.
