The Directed Energy (DE) Systems Symposium focuses on systems aspects of DE in a limited-attendance environment. This tenth annual DE Systems Symposium consisted of co-located technical sessions organized by seven separate conferences, with joint technical and plenary sessions to encourage discussion outside narrow technical limits. The objective
Portions of the Systems Symposium are conducted at the Secret level, and attendance at all sessions is limited to U.S. citizens with security clearances, who are employees of the U.S. Government or its contractors.
The detailed agenda, including presentations within sessions, is available here in PDF format. Changes to the program did occur.
Technical sessions of the Systems Symposium were held at the Renaissance Portsmouth-Norfolk Waterfront Hotel and at off-site locations.
Companions are always a welcome addition to any DEPS meeting. To encourage them, we offer companion meal options at an additional cost. Our full meal option includes all meals that are provided for regular attendees including any evening and specialty functions that may be planned. For those companions who do not want to be tied to scheduled meal functions, we also offer a reception only option.
The conferences of the DE Systems Symposium will publish all presentations (and papers) that have been properly marked and released by a sponsoring government agency. To allow for the maximum distribution of the technical data, the Systems Symposium will generate five sets of proceedings covering the various combinations of Classification and Distributions (A, C, and D).
