The Annual Directed Energy Science and Technology Symposium was held from 26 February to 2 March 2018 in Oxnard, California,
Embassy Suites Mandalay Beach and at nearby off-site facilities.
The Annual DE S&T Symposium focused on sub-systems and component research and development aspects of DE in a
mixed access environment.
Portions of the Symposium were conducted at the Secret level, and others at the unclassified but limited
distribution levels. The Symposium commitee offered unclassified and open sessions so that all
attendees will have participation options at all times.
Proceedings of the Symposium are being published. See our
Online Store for proceedings of this and previous Annual Directed Energy Symposia.
