Delivering Airpower for the Multi-Domain Battlespace
2017 is a critical moment for combat airpower. As F-35 nations prepare to take delivery of 5th generation aircraft, NATO and its partners are confronting security threats on the Alliance's eastern border. The operating environment grows ever more complex, and fighters are now required to execute missions in demanding A2/AD environments. As air forces sustain readiness for a near-peer conflict, they must also develop COIN capabilities to support the suppression of terrorism and insurgency. In short, guaranteeing air superiority has never been tougher.
International Fighter 2017 will be your annual opportunity to engage with chiefs of air staff, senior capability developers, strategists and force commanders, as they gather in Berlin to debate the delivery of combat airpower in an information-heavy, multi-domain battlespace. Critical topics include 4th and 5th generation integration, LVC training, armed reconnaissance or light attack, EW, weapons systems, information fusion, manned/unmanned teaming, cyber resilience and spectrum superiority.
Co-chaired by the recently retired Commander of USAFE-AFAFRICA, and the former Chief of Staff of the German Air Force, the forum will welcome an expert delegation from countries including the UK, Italy, Sri Lanka, Romania, Switzerland, Kenya and Belgium. Join them in Germany as they train tomorrow's pilot, plan for tomorrow's mission and suppress tomorrow's threat.
