To maintain persuasive deterrence, military systems must be secure, mission-ready, reliable, and trusted. Additionally, the military must achieve lower costs and faster-to-field capabilities, while still achieving better performance. The 2013 Southern Indiana ASNE Symposium, themed “Global Deterrence and Defense: Secure, Effective, and Affordable,” will provide a forum for Defense leadership and technical experts representing Military, Government, Industry, and Academia to exchange ideas and information on science and technology approaches that will enable system security, effectiveness, and affordability.

  • Understanding End User Needs
  • Assuring Quality, Security, and Availability for Hardware and Software throughout a System Lifecycle
  • Improving Operational Readiness and Effectiveness of Military Systems
  • Creating Greater Efficiency and Productivity
  • Rapid Deployment of Emerging Missions

The above broad areas of interest as they pertain to the following technology areas will be of particular interest for this symposium’s technical sessions:

  • Trusted Electronics
  • High Reliability Microelectronics
  • Artificial Environments
  • Power and Energy
  • Electromagnetic Spectrum Control (Radar, Electronic Warfare, and EO/IR)
