The 2010 Symposium brings together recognized experts from government, military and industry to showcase the latest developments in Targets, UAVs and Range Operations. As threats and weapons systems evolve and robotics become ever more prominent in warfare, training and testing for these advanced scenarios becomes increasingly critical. Questions of threat replication and fidelity versus the realities of cost and funds availability make the planners role in product selection difficult. This symposium addresses these realities through presentations on such cutting edge developments as diverse as naval targets and control systems that can deal with swarm threats in a credible way, to testing of directed energy weapons systems and the challenges of making these systems affordable for the end user. Included in this symposium are presentations from high-ranking OSD officials concerning the big picture as to way ahead, and from international experts concerning their perspectives in these areas.
