Integrated Air & Missile Defence Eastern Europe Conference
- 26 July, 2016 - 28 July, 2016, Bucharest, Romania
Air & Missile Defence: The Top Priority for Eastern Europe
With extensive aggression coming from the East combined with a rapid increase in varied and unexpected threats from non-state actors in the Middle East, Eastern Europe is once again taking on the role as Europe's front line defender. With this in mind, key regional actors are intensifying the command and control of their airspace to protect against ballistic and non-ballistic missiles as well as unauthorised foreign aircraft.
Such prioritisation has seen nations such as Romania actively strive to hit NATO's 2% Defence Spending target through the extensive acquisition of new airborne threat detection, inception and communication systems. In addition to the modernisation of legacy capabilities, regional integration is becoming a pillar of Eastern Europe's air defence strategy. Designed to spread capability across the region such collaboration will ensure all nations are protected against these very real threats despite their location, allies and air defence capabilities.
