Full Spectrum Air Defence 2024 Conference

June 24-27, 2024 - London, United Kingdom

The Premier Meeting Ground for the International Air Defence Community

In an era defined by rapid technological advances and dynamic geopolitical shifts, the need for robust Air Defence capabilities has never been so evident. The current Russia-Ukraine conflict has highlighted an array of capability gaps in current Air Defence systems, as the type of ariel threats encountered evolve, and the usage of Unarmed Ariel Systems becomes more prevalent.

As a result of these emerging and unprecedented challenges, it is vital that NATO and Allied partners are able to responded to the evolving landscape of threats.

Now, more than ever, there is a critical need for an event that focuses comprehensively and holistically on Full Spectrum Air Defence. This years event will provide an update and forward-thinking platform to explore cutting edge technologies, address logistical challenges related to both national and international interoperability.

NEW for 2024:

  • Attendees will have access to FOUR DAYS worth of specialist content, all under ONE ticket as part of an Air Defence Week
  • This includes access to focus days delving into Directed Energy Systems as well as Military Radar
  • An increased focus on c-UAS / c-sUAS technologies and capabilities.

Themes include:

  • How can legacy Air Defence systems be upgraded by implementing a 'C2 First' Approach?
  • As threats become more varied with the development of low slow small uas to hypersonic glide vehicles, what options are there for multi-model air defence systems to engage a range of targets? What are the benefits and limitations of futuristic technology, such as directed energy?
  • How can both national and international interoperability be increased in order to provide seamless reactive capability to dealing with threats areas across the spectrum?
  • What lessons can be transferred between GBAD commanders in different regions of the world to meet operational challenges?

The base tour was excellent, plus the event allowed presentations from countries and discussions about radar and missile integration
