Air Mission Planning and Support 2017 Conference

5 April, 2017 - 6 April, 2017, London, United Kingdom

We are proud to present our 8th Air Mission Planning conference. After the great success achieved in 2016, we aim at improving the conference even more by offering a unique and in depth experience by integrating for this year's event the support and operational prospective of air missions.

Understanding the upcoming threats and thus the urgent need of various armed forces to face them, we present a precise and accurate forum for discussion led by commanding officers, senior leaders, academics and industry experts, with the goal to take a stand in pushing forward technological development, bringing together friends and allies, and improve awareness of real world dynamics.

At Air Mission Planning and Support 2017 there will be a unique focus on the complexity of managing varied air mission planning and support systems and key strategies not only to procure and acquire new systems, but also how to best upgrade, modernise and improve existing platforms for modern day warfare and operations. These technological upgrades will bring to the production and implementation of new integrated assets, training, updating legacy assets, interoperability in joint environments, data management by means of smart software and improved cyber security.
