Following last year’s successful launch event, SMi invites you to Air Missile Defence Technology 2017 as it returns to Prague on the 24th and 25th October. The agenda has been released and online registration is now live.
Bringing together air defence operators and technical experts from the military and industry, the event agenda has been curated to provide a discussion on threats to the increasingly complex air space and the solutions available to defeat these threats from the air including missiles, rockets, artillery, planes and unmanned aerial vehicles.
The two-day conference comes at a relevant time, with more nations planning to upgrade or replace their AMD systems and looking to industry to provide their next generation platforms. Furthermore, regional tensions in Eastern Europe mean that air missile defence has become a crucial capability to maintain to compete against new and modern threats including cruise and ballistic missiles and UAVs.
