AIAA DEFENSE Forum is a Secret/NOFORN event focused on aerospace technologies and their application to complex national security challenges. The forum is widely attended by hundreds of Chief Technology Officers as well as other personnel from government, military, and industry.


By sponsoring the forum, you can elevate your visibility, expand your network, and showcase the unique value your organization brings to the defense community. As an event that’s smaller than other Institute forums, AIAA DEFENSE Forum offers significant opportunity to network with other attendees in a more intimate setting.
