NDIA Returns to NPS Campus for Annual Survivability Symposium

By MC2 Michael Ehrlich

National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) Chief Executive Officer retired U.S. Air Force Gen. Herbert J. “Hawk” Carlisle welcomes attendees to the annual NDIA Aircraft Survivability Symposium, Nov. 9 in King Auditorium. NDIA once again turned to NPS as the backdrop for its annual conference, where attendees and speakers can interact with university researchers and warfighters on current and future challenges in the area of survivability.

“Our objective with the Aircraft Survivability Symposium is to provide a venue for the transfer of information on innovative technology that can directly support the military survivability community,” said Carlisle. “We offer unique educational opportunities ... And NPS is an ideal venue, we are truly grateful for their sponsorship.”

During the two-day event, subject matter experts discussed varied topics on aircraft survivability through detailed tutorial sessions, industry executive keynotes and more.

“So many people in the world of combat survivability have either attended, or taught at, or have some connection with NPS,” said NDIA Board member retired U.S. Army Brig. Gen. Stephen D. Mundt. “It is really fortunate that we have been able to develop this partnership with NPS so that we can come back each year and do this symposium. We bring together some of the greatest minds – a range of all sorts of folks in service, in industry, and in academia – that come here to talk about how we can best protect the men and women who put on the nation’s cloth and serve in the Armed Forces.”
