Aircraft Survivability 2003 "Reclaiming the Low-Altitude Battlespace"

Event #4940

Monterey, Calif.

POC: Ann Saliski @ (703) 247-2577

Combat flight operations at low altitude pose special survivability challenges for aircraft, both manned and unmanned. While many combat missions may be executed from outside the range of anti-aircraft artillery and man-portable air-defense systems, rotorcraft, fixed-wing transports and tactical unmanned air vehicles, by the very nature of their missions, must operate in the hazardous low-altitude flight regime. Tactical fighters may be required, on occasion, to operate in this space, as well.

Aircraft Survivability 2003 has two principal goals. The first is to acquaint the manned and unmanned aircraft communities with the special challenges of low-altitude operations. The second is to increase awareness of survivability techniques and technologies. Attendees will be cleared at the "Secret U.S. Only" level.
