Today's Star Wars 
Missile Defense System
Guest Presenter:
Jim Nolton  
President, Nolton Enterprises
CEO, Novocryo 


Do you remember the reference to STAR WARS missile defense in the Reagan era?  Do you know what STAR WARS missile defense really entails?  Wouldn't you like to know what the US Government and the Aero Space contractors have been working on to keep us safe from unfriendly nations?  With all the unrest in the world today (especially now), wouldn't you like to know what is protecting you and your family and how it works?  Well, this presentation will tell you about the US layered missile defense system as it pertains to unfriendly offensive Inter Continental Ballistic Missiles (ICBMs) and how the system works.
This presentation will give you an inside look at the weapon system like you've never seen before.  It will focus on and show actual footage on the Ground-Based Midcourse Defense (GMD) Rocket, the Exo-Kinetic Kill vehicle payload, and what happens the instant it impacts an unfriendly rocket in space.  


Multiple A&D companies contribute directly or indirectly to the systems, sensors, radar and weapons that comprise the GMD. Join us in Phoenix on Thursday September 14, 2017 and find out where and how your company fits into the big picture.
