We are proud to announce the Air Missile Defence Technology Conference which will be taking place in Prague on the 24th and 25th October 2016 in Czech Republic.

This conference programme will provide updates on capabilities and requirements from national militaries on their Air Missile Defence programs, the challenges associated with developing those programs, the importance of interoperability between nations to ensure a cost efficient and effective Air Missile Defence strategy, as well as the growing importance of interoperability within technological systems to ensure a swift transaction from existing to new AMD platforms. These topics will be addressed by military speakers, solution makers, and, crucially, industry technological experts on hand to provide the latest information in developments within Air Missile Defence Technology.

Military forces are looking to combat the complex threats posed by a wide range of missiles and ensure the security of their own territory. Currently, this is perhaps more prevalent in Eastern Europe than anywhere else with rising tensions being met with a demand for advances and developments in Air Missile Defence Technology. Therefore, our Air Missile Defence Technology Conference will explore the strategies and technologies required to develop next generation capability in this vital area of national defence.
