One integral regional acquisition is Poland's Wisla program which is yet to decide on the specific air defence system to fulfil their medium-range air defence capability need.

Poland, alike its regional neighbours is undergoing a period of urgent modernisation and rejuvenation in air defence - this comes as a result of the ongoing aggression from Russia in the Donbass. Also, as a reaction to the proliferation of UAVs into the battlespace, the requirement to be able to counter 'the low, slow and small' threat is needed more than ever.

In order to enable regional collaboration and discussion around these bespoke challenges and key acquisitions facing air defence in Eastern Europe, the Integrated Air & Missile Defence Eastern Europe conference will bring together Chiefs of Staff, Commanders of Air Defence and Air Forces, Heads of Procurement and Industry Executives from across the region between the 26th-27th July in Warsaw, Poland.

Meeting the Needs of the Region:

  • Engage in end-goal focused debates regarding the future of integrated air defence and regional integration to develop an effective joint strategy to maximise national and regional security
  • Join your military and industry colleagues at the Drinks Reception and Gala Dinner to engage in knowledge sharing and networking beyond the conference room
  • Mould the future of air defence by debating and assessing the strategic direction and considerations being formed by the regions Commanders to align to the future of regional air defence
  • Participate in discussions with Military Decision Makers from the likes of Romania, Bulgaria, Poland, Hungary and Georgia to determine current and future requirements, procurements and capability needs
