Forward Air Control 2014 Conference

23 September, 2014 - 25 September, 2014, London, United Kingdom

Afghanistan, Libya and Mali all proved the continuing importance of precision strike. However, as operations draw to a close, lessons learned must be consolidated and incorporated into the planning and development of future FAC/JTAC coordinated missions. Especially now as NATO forces return to contingency with a focus on conventional warfare/major combat operations, a revised approach is taking place to which forces must adapt.

And with limited resources and dwindling live training assets, nations are now looking to alternative solutions for the smart and effective training of FAC/JTACs. Simulation technology is at the fore and is also proving to be a useful tool in promoting greater international interoperability in CAS operations, with the move towards networked simulation.

We are delighted to announce the Forward Air Control conference on the 23-25 September in London.

The event will provide a dedicated forum to assess CAS operations from a FAC/JTAC perspective, addressing all the key issues such as training, improving communications networks and lessoning the burden of equipment for the dismounted FAC/JTAC. It will also assess the wider strategic context of FAC operations, looking at the land battlefield, increased air and land integration and how future capabilities will be implemented. The conference will share operational experiences and future strategies from militaries across Europe, the US and Middle East.

By attending Forward Air Control 2014, you will come away with a detailed understanding of:

  • The lessons learned from FAC/JTAC coordinated missions in Afghanistan, Libya and Mali to incorporate into your own future planning
  • The latest training, communication and FAC/JTAC equipment solutions on the market to be best placed for upcoming procurements and product development
  • Ideas as to how more advanced interoperability can be achieved on both the national and international level, investigating all technological, tactical and operational approaches
