2023 Hypersonic Technology & Systems Conference

2023 Hypersonic Technology & Systems Conference


October 16-19, 2023
Space Dynamics Laboratory
North Logan, Utah


Sustained hypersonic flight within atmosphere has substantial utility. Advances in underlying technologies and integration into weapon systems offer the DoD significant enhancements in its ability to penetrate heavily defended areas and prosecute time-critical targets. Other nations are also actively pursuing these technologies; as such, defense against these systems is also of increased interest. The technologies required to enable the reliable use of hypersonic vehicles are multi-disciplinary. Some of the technologies that HTSC focuses on include:

  • Thermal Protection & Management Systems
  • Propulsion
  • Aerodynamics & Aerothermodynamics
  • Navigation, Guidance & Control and Electrical Systems
  • Programmatic Review
  • Defense Against Hypersonic Systems
  • Detecting & Tracking Hypersonic Objects
  • Sensing in a Hypersonic Environment
  • Ground Test Campaigns & Facilities
  • Systems Engineering
  • Flight Experimentation & Testing
  • Kill Chain, Mission Planning & C4ISR
  • Weapon Effects & Lethality
  • Modeling & Simulation, Analysis, and Design

HTSC’s emphasis is on systems and applied technology. This conference highlights the nation’s investments in systems integrated hypersonic technologies for both research and development and weapon platform integration for offense and defense. It brings together the best and brightest involved in the development and use of hypersonic technologies in a unique, limited-attendance forum which will facilitate knowledge sharing and collaboration opportunities. This event is held at a restricted access level.
