The Air Defense Artillery Association and the United States Field Artillery Association will co-host the Fires Symposium 1 - 4 May 2023 at the Apache Hotel Conference Center in Lawton, Oklahoma. The Army modernization strategy is focused on delivering a “Multi-Domain Capable Force” by 2030 in which ADA and FA forces play critical roles with capabilities to defeat targets at much longer
ranges, as well as protect forces from an increasingly complex array of air, missile, and drone threats. The Fires Symposium will support the theme of “Fighting with Fires in 2030” offering speakers and panels from a joint and combined Fires perspective and multiple breakout sessions for each branch’s intricacies. Many of today’s leaders from the Army, Army National Guard, Marine Corps and other Military personnel will give Keynote presentations and contribute to panel discussions.
The Association-hosted event also delivers a robust mix of presenters from across government, academia and industry who bring their experience to the topics on hand. This event will also serve as an opportunity for industry to interact with attendees as there are several networking events planned throughout the Symposium.
Since 1975 the ADA Association has supported soldiers, family members, retirees, and veterans. The mission is to foster a spirit of unity and esprit de corps among all members of the Air Defense Artillery community. The ADA Breakouts are designed by Air Defense Artillery branch professionals and industry experts.
With over 100 years of protecting the traditions of the FA branch and promoting professional growth, content and dialogue among field artillerymen, USFAA is co-hosting this symposium. The FA Breakouts are designed by Field Artillery branch professionals and industry experts.
