PRECISION STRIKE ANNUAL REVIEW (PSAR-13)

Date: March 19 - March 20, 2013

Location: Waterford at Springfield, VA

Theme: Precision Engagement - New Strategic Environment

Precision Engagement-New Strategic Environment is the theme for the 2013 Precision Strike Annual Review (PSAR-13) scheduled for 19-20 March 2013 at the Waterford at Springfield. This Review will address strike warfare requirements and capability decisions critical to national security.

PSA perseveres in the growing importance of precision strike systems in shaping our national defense posture and in influencing events around the world. PSAR-13 is structured to be a powerful and informative program that will concentrate on global presence in the Asia-Pacific Region and will describe both the new strategic environment, as well as the needed characteristics of future strike weapons and systems. Further, PSAR-13 will provide insights into "hot-spot" activities and evolving threats to strike warfare in the Middle East.

PSA is honored to present Representative Mac Thornberry (R-TX, 13th District)-Vice Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee-to kick off the Review on opening day. Further, we are delighted that keynote speakers Honorable Frank Kendall-Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics-and Rear Admiral Rick Snyder, USN-Deputy Director for Joint Strategic Planning, the Joint Staff (J-5)-will address the precision strike community. Additionally, Major General Harry Greene, USA-Deputy for Acquisition and Systems Management-has been invited, but he is not yet confirmed.

Representative Thornberry will present the congressional perspective on the new strategic environment related to the pivot to the Asia-Pacific Region. Mr. Kendall will highlight acquisition opportunities in meeting precision strike challenges in the new strategic environment, and Rear Admiral Snyder will respond to the security environment in which the United States military forces remain actively engaged, and he will focus on the rebalance for the new strategic environment. If confirmed, Major General Greene will address mid- and far-term challenges for precision engagement. They are four of a host of numerous top visionaries and strategy experts who will talk about the Administration's priorities, policies and strategies that impact precision engagement to help us better define the future of precision strike. Other speakers will address wide-ranging challenges and activities of paramount interest to the precision strike community.

A special feature of PSAR-13 will be the presentation of the William J. Perry Award to a very deserving individual or team of experts who have made significant contributions to the development and support of precision strike systems that have led to the strengthening of our vital national security interests. Dr. Paul Kaminski-Director, Defense Science Board-will present this year's award on behalf of Dr. Bill Perry.

Please join our distinguished leadership speakers as they showcase critical challenges facing our great nation related to the new strategic environment. Review page 15 of this Digest for a snapshot of major topics to be addressed during PSAR-13.

WHY ATTEND PSAR-13?

As we end today's wars and focus on a broader range of challenges and opportunities, including the security and prosperity of the Asia-Pacific Region, the precision strike community will need to invest in technologically advanced precision engagement capabilities critical to future success-including intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance; operating in anti-access environments; and prevailing in all domains, including cyber. In concentrating on global presence that will emphasize the Asia-Pacific Region, we need to continue to keep close tabs on the Middle East "hot spots" to ensure that we can meet any future threats and be able to retain freedom of maneuver globally.

The Precision Strike Association has planned a riveting agenda of critical topics for discussion by national leaders describing the new strategic environment and needed characteristics of future strike weapons and systems. Leadership speakers scheduled to address PSAR-13 hail from Congress, OSD, the Joint Staff, COCOMs, Military Departments, PEO Organizations, Field Activities, Industry, and Academia. They will help us to showcase and gain insight into requirements and programs reflected below that will be addressed during this two-day review.

PSAR-13 will showcase:

  • Rebalance to the Asia-Pacific Region
  • "Hot Spots" in the Middle East
  • Critical Perspectives-National Security, Defense Policy, and the Budget
  • Future Force Development
  • Mid- and Far-Term Challenges for Precision Engagement
  • 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review
  • Precision Weapons & Munitions for Tomorrow's Strategic Environment
  • International & Services Precision Weapons Sessions-including Air-Sea Battle
  • S&T & Laboratory Initiatives for the Asia-Pacific Region
  • C4ISR Integration
  • Acquisition Opportunities in Meeting Precision Strike Challenges
  • USSOCOM's Perspective on Delivering Precision Strike Capabilities
  • Joint Strike Fighter-Precision Engagement in the New Strategic Environment

A highlight of PSAR-13 will be the presentation of the 17TH William J. Perry Award during the Luncheon on Opening Day to a recipient who has made significant contributions to the development, introduction, or support of precision strike systems. Please bring your associates to share in this very important and timely review.
