The National Fire Control Symposium (NFCS) is a triservice-supported event with technical program lead advisory rotating among the Services. The U.S. Army will provide lead technical advisorship for the April 2023 event in its 29th year.
The NFCS is the only all-Service forum for discussing the entire kill chain applicable to the Joint Military Services, as well as their research and development centers and defense industry partners. Technical content includes the presentation, demonstration, discussion, and sharing of advanced concepts required for force management and pre-mission planning; locating, identifying, targeting, and attacking air, sea, ground, and space targets; and performing post-attack evaluations, as well as the integration, testing, tactics, and training required to maintain our tactical advantage. The symposium addresses the application and integration of sensing, information interoperability, command and control, and weapons used for countering difficult targets characterized as concealed, time-critical, urban, deeply buried, or electronic.
