Integrated Air and Missile Defence 2017 Conference

The Gathering of the World's Air Defence Community

With the proliferation of UAVs of various sizes, the increasing number of (ballistic) missile-equipped nations and growing geopolitical uncertainty in Eastern Europe, the Middle East and the Asia-Pacific region in particular - Air and Missile Defence programmes and requirements are understandably evolving at a rapid pace.

The value of the Air and Missile Defence market is estimated to reach in excess of $35 billion by 2025.

Over the last decade IAMD has established itself as the chosen forum for the global air defence community - discussing strategy, best practice, emerging technologies, and methods for enabling greater cooperation between international partners and allies.

Given the ever increasing threat of radical institutions (both state and non-state) with access to weapons of mass destruction, it is critical that the global air and missile defence community meet once again and discuss how we can best protect our national security and infrastructure against these rising threats.

With this in mind the 10th annual Integrated Air & Missile Defence conference will take place on 29-30 March in London, England.

This year's key questions include:

  • How can air defenders be aided by the OEM and systems integrators to smooth the transition from legacy to contemporary assets?
  • As threats become increasingly varied, what options are there for multi-modal air defence systems, such as directed energy, which can engage a range of targets? What benefits and limitations to these futuristic systems?
  • In what ways can nations increase the integration of Air Defences across different planes, for example Ground-Based and Sea-Based, in an effort to create a more seamless reactive capability?
  • What lessons can be transferred between GBAD commanders in different regions of the world, in terms of meeting operational challenges?

''The base tour was excellent, plus the event allowed presentations from countries and discussions about radar and missile integration''
