ARLINGTON, VA — As the invasion of Ukraine, and the shadow of a wider conflict, underscores the need for improved domestic supply chains for innovative energetic materials, leaders in defense research will assemble at Purdue University for the 2022 Breakthrough Energetics Conference<https://www.ndia.org/events/2022/5/4/breakthrough-energetics-2022>, Wednesday and Thursday, May 4 and 5, the National Defense Industrial Association announces.
