Networked Lethality: Beyond Generations
The International Fighter Conference
will take place in London in 2021 and the programme is currently in development.
Previously in 2020 we discussed the future of Combat Air Power across the spectrum of operations. The utility of Combat Air, air-integration into multi-domain operations, and continuing interest in both next generation and light attack platforms calls for a broad range of discussion suited to the 250 attendees that gather each year from both large and small air forces alike. The Conference, now in its 19th year, has built a reputation as the world's premier event for all elements of the fighter aircraft community, with attendance spanning from the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and parts of Asia.
Investment in expensive high-end platforms needs to be balanced with a requirement for platforms adept and efficient in low-intensity conflict. What is consistent is that information and connectivity is at the heart of operations. This year's wide-ranging programme uniquely covers the key and emerging issues related to airpower delivery for military leaders and industry. Over the few conference days, we will exchange perspectives and gain insights towards meeting the challenges of operations now and in the future, addressing integration of next generation assets with existing platforms, light attack aircraft, electro-magnetic spectrum dominance, cyber integration, advanced training, LVC, cost-effective capability development, disruptive technologies and mission planning. The next generation programmes, including FCAS, Tempest, and F-X will be discussed and will provide an incredible opportunity to revolutionise airpower delivery and open the door for international opportunities.
Top 4 Reasons to Attend IFC
- Define a light attack blueprint which can support the delivery of decisive air-ground capability in the permissive operating environment
- Integrate cyber, EW and the electromagnetic spectrum to sustain the operational edge in a contested battlespace
- Optimise the management and fusion of data to support the attainment of information dominance for air operations and the joint force
