05 Aug 21. Hypersonic Weapons Summit.
- September 28-29, 2021- Online
Guiding Hypersonic Development to Operationalize Capabilities for US National Security Goals
Since the early 2000s, the United States has supported the ongoing development of hypersonic missiles to capitalize on what has been recently coined as an, Advanced Capability Enabler. These high priority assets can fly at speeds of at least Mach 5, and present a unique opportunity for the United States Military to expand its global reach even more so than typical operations.
The proliferation of efforts, funding, and initiatives across the Military, Federal Government, academia and industry to enable this capability is nothing short of rapid and all encompassing; there is a wide understanding that this capability is one that must be capitalized by the United States as promptly as possible.
Both the Pentagon and Congress have displayed a growing interest in pursuing the development and near-term operationalization of hypersonic weapons and systems. Near-pear hypersonic technology, programs of record, and capability development are at an all-time high, with some claims that United States adversaries are expected to field an operational hypersonic glide vehicle as early as 2022. With the Pentagon’s recent successful test of a hypersonic glide body in 2020, the path to hypersonic deployment seems closer than ever for the United States. However, there are many technological and operational decisions to be made before fielding an operational weapon. Meeting the pace at which the Services wants to test and field a hypersonic offensive capability will be a challenge, but doing so is critical to the National Defense Strategy of the United States Military.
Join our Hypersonic Weapons Summit for the unique opportunity to understand US Military senior leadership approach to the ongoing global proliferation of hypersonic weapons and capabilities for FY2021 and beyond!
Please Note: Due to the critical nature of the development of hypersonic weapons, we must state that only U.S. Government, Contractors and Academia can attend this event.

05 Aug 21. DOD and ROK Conduct First Bilateral Communication Technology Cooperation Committee Forum. Leaders from the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) Chief Information Office (CIO) and the Office of Planning and Coordination Republic of Korea (ROK) Ministry of Defense (MOD) met August 4 for the first time for a bilateral Information and Communication Technology Cooperation Committee (ICTCC) Forum.
John Sherman, acting DOD CIO, virtually joined his counterpart Deputy Minister of the Office of Planning and Coordination Hyun Su Han of the ROK MOD for the forum. Building on the success of prior ICT Forum series, this was the first ICTCC meeting between the two countries. The forum was conducted virtually, and represents the two nations’ commitment to maintain the strongest dialogue and cooperation. The leaders discussed areas of mutual interest including cybersecurity; defense information technology; command, control and communications and data. The forum is a part of the ROK-U.S. security partnership in this critical region of the world.
At the start of the meeting, Sherman and Han signed a governing ICTCC Terms of Reference (TOR). The TOR emphasizes the importance of the relationship to the Department in support of the alliance as well as the U.S. commitment to broaden our ability to coordinate military technology development with Allies to enable more effective combined operations. The ICTCC provides both nations with a key mechanism for senior consultations and a forum to exchange information and share best practices to facilitate interoperability.
The forum is expected to become an annual event with the next meeting in 2022. (Source: US DoD)

Why You Should Attend this Year’s Summit
The global Artificial Intelligence market for the military industry is expected to reach $11.6bn by 2025. such increases in RDT&E funding & the integration of emerging technologies is increasingly being requested to bolster current and future DoD efforts to achieve mission impact at scale. The 2021 Autonomous Capabilities for DoD Summit will provide a ‘town-hall’ style forum to discuss the advanced capabilities that AI-enabled autonomous systems and machine learning provide to the Warfighter in the battlespace. At this event, various initiatives across the DoD to implement AI to transform U.S. joint warfighting processes will be detailed.
This Summit will also offer perspectives from Senior level leaders across the DoD and Military Services on how leveraging AI & other autonomous technologies will be key to their future modernization efforts and keeping pace in the Great Power Competition. Effectively identifying these capabilities and integrating them across the Joint Force is vital to helping the Warfighter to be more adaptive, lethal, & competitive in the future high-end fight. The application of these capabilities & the increase of human-machine teaming across the military services can help minimize the number of Warfighters in harm’s way and enable critical new mission sets that would have never been possible. Attendees at this event will have the opportunity to hear about how the DoD is pushing for the rapid application and insertion of autonomous capabilities across DoD systems and platforms. The DoD continues to push for increased strategic partnerships with industry as well as the educating of young Warfighters on AI software systems; ultimately, to help the joint force leverage such innovations in future all-domain operations.
Our team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Summits’ content and focus areas, and we will assemble the most respected minds in Autonomy, AI, and machine learning, to include key policymakers across military and civilian offices.

29 Jul 21. Radar to come under the spotlight at Radar Interest Group conference. The South African Radar Interest Group (SARIG) will be hosting its biennial Radar Conference on 20 October and in anticipation has issued a call for papers.
The virtual conference, to be held via Microsoft Teams, has as its theme ‘Radar for Society’, which invites presentations of radar applications from all spheres of society. This theme was chosen based on the fact that Radar is now ubiquitous and everyone is benefiting from it, the organisers said.
The closing date for the call for papers is 6 August.
Those interested in presenting on the theme should make sure it is relevant, beneficial to the radar community and cover about 25 minutes.
Submissions (title and abstract plus a short CV) can be sent to:
Jean Swart at
Ernest Mngomezulu at
Molahlegi Molope at
The last SARIG conference was held in 2019 with the theme of ‘Radar in the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR)’.
SARIG held its first radar conference in October 2015 and its second in November 2017. SARIG is a not-for-profit organisation established to further the cause of radar in South Africa. Since its inception in 2008, SARIG organized the 75th anniversary of Radar in South Africa conference in 2014 whereby 150 people attended, and in 2015 SARIG organized an international Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Radar conference which saw more than 220 people attending from all over the world.
SARIG believes that both developing and developed nations have growing interest in the use of radar to monitor large areas for diverse civilian and military applications. Globally, new and current threats such as piracy, poaching, warfare and acts of terrorism require improved radar technology to allow border protection, prevention of human trafficking, wildlife preservation, facility protection, and more. Radar systems must deliver new and specialised levels of information and it is therefore important to continue sharing the most recent research and state of the art developments. (Source: DefenceWeb)
