Air Mission Planning Conference

17 April, 2018 - 18 April, 2018, London, United Kingdom

We are proud to presents its 9th annual Air Mission Planning conference, which will take place in London on the 17th and 18th April 2018. After the great success achieved in 2017, we aim to improve 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 needs of various armed forces facing 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 technological development, bringing together friends and allies, and improve awareness of real world dynamics.

At Air Mission Planning and Support 2018 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.
