Who We Are
The International Telemetering Conference/USA (ITC/USA) is an annual forum and technical exhibition sponsored by the International Foundation for Telemetering (IFT), a non-profit corporation dedicated to serving the technical and professional interests of the telemetering community. The conference is held in the fall of each year and consists of three and one-half days of technical presentations, tutorials, and short courses arranged in several concurrent sessions. In addition, a technical exhibit staffed by both manufacturers and users displays the latest advancements in equipment and services. Exhibitors staff their booths with professional sales engineers and other technical personnel to ensure that an appropriate level of technical expertise is available to the attendee.
Each year, the IFT-appointed General Chair and Technical Program Chair develop the conference based on their perspectives and experience. They, in turn, assemble a staff to handle the various functions of the conference program. The entire staff is composed of volunteers, sponsored by their parent organizations, who are active in the industry or are involved in test and evaluation and instrumentation systems.
The unique relationship, which began in 1965, between the manufacturing community and the users in both government and industry has produced yearly conferences that have led to the continued advancements in telemetering and instrumentation systems and equipment we rely on today, as well as the continuing education of telemetering professionals worldwide.
