The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) National Forum on Weapon System Effectiveness is a biennial event dedicated to promoting and sharing knowledge about the complex nature of modern weapon systems. It provides a SECRET/U.S. ONLY forum for discussing entire weapon systems, design considerations, and the engineering decisions that must be made to produce effective and successful weapon systems.
The 6th AIAA Biennial National Forum for Weapon System Effectiveness is supported by the AIAA Weapon System Effectiveness Technical Committee and hosted by Raytheon Corporation. The forum will address the themes of major weapons, test and evaluation, performance analysis, and future systems. This event will provide a SECRET/U.S. ONLY venue for the discussion of weapon system effectiveness, including the technology, design, development, engineering, and operational considerations important to the successful employment of modern ground, sea, air, and space weapon systems and platforms. The forum is directed toward engineers, scientists, technical managers, program managers, and policymakers. There will be special opportunities for policymakers to discuss the role of weapon system effectiveness assessments and weapon acquisition and force structure. The program is being developed around a distinguished group of keynote speakers, government and industry panels, and classified and unclassified technical paper presentations.
This year’s forum will be held at Raytheon Missile Systems, in the beautiful city of Tucson, Arizona. Tucson is home to many national parks, including the famous Saguaro National Park, and the Pima Air and Space Museum, one of the largest aviation bone yard in the world.
AIAA would like to thank Raytheon Corporation for its dedication and support of the 6th AIAA Biennial National Forum on Weapon System Effectiveness.
