We are proud and excited to participate in this summit, which is among the industry’s most important and esteemed CAD/PAD community events.

About the CAD/PAD Technical Exchange Workshop

Since 1994, the CAD/PAD Technical Exchange Workshop has hosted technical discussions about CAD and PAD devices and similar technology. Today, this biennial event provides the CAD/PAD community the opportunity to exchange ideas to enhance warfighter readiness.

Hosted by the Joint Program Office (JPO), the Technical Exchange Workshop’s purpose is to facilitate discussion aimed toward advancing energetic solution development for the CAD/PAD portfolio. The conference is attended by designers, engineers and technologists, who come together to exchange thoughts on new manufacturing technology applications and energetics development breakthroughs. Attendees also discuss future user requirements.

What’s Happening at the 2022 CAD/PAD TEW?

The 2022 TEW will take place at the Velocity Center at the College of Southern Maryland (CSW) in Indian Head, Maryland, from July 12 to 14, 2022. This three-day session will allow attendees to exchange information through a series of presentations addressing a wide range of CAD/PAD-related topics.

Prior to the workshop, the JPO will coordinate a golf social on July 11 at Topgolf National Harbor, which AETC is proud to sponsor. This premier entertainment destination features climate-controlled hitting bays, giant outfield targets and self-scoring balls.
