With an increasing threat of small UAS/drones becoming the latest choice of non-state actors for ISR, and offensive purposes, our military is now in a race to close the capability gap between low-tech adversaries and establishing a clear counter-UAS doctrine.

Helping closing this gap and charting a new course in UAS/Drone technology is the goal of the Counter UAS Summit taking place August 22-24 in Washington, D.C. As such, we have created a forum for military and industry experts to discuss these priorities and there ultimate solutions in establishing more focused rules of engagement. Find out more here.

Defence Exports 2018

19/09/2018 - 20/09/2018
Rome, Italy

SMi’s Defence Exports conference will return as the leading event for industry professionals and government officials around the world dealing with defense trade compliance. A truly global event, delegates will hear from government speakers and senior international trade compliance professionals from around the world on regulation controls including ITAR, EAR, ECR, Dual-Use and the Wassenaar Arrangement.

As well as sharing best practices for how leading organisations manage their global trade programmes, this year’s event will deal with the emerging issues and challenges facing the defence trade in 2018. After a year in office, the US Presidential administration is yet to make its intentions in regards to trade reform clear and, with the Brexit deadline of March 2019 drawing closer, significant development to trade control on both sides of the Atlantic is expected. In addition, with a growing number of high profile cyber-attacks hitting industries across the globe in 2017, there is an urgent need to implement risk management strategies to adapt to the reliance on cloud-computing and cloud-services.

19th Annual Military Airlift and Air-to-Air Refuelling Conference and Focus Day

03/12/2018 - 05/12/2018
Rome, Italy

The 19th annual Military Airlift and Air-Air Refuelling conference and exhibition will return to Rome on the 4th and 5th December 2018, with a brand-new pre-conference focus day on Air-Air Refuelling on the 3rd December 2018.

With the airlift sector in constant development, there are more than 800 new platforms set to be delivered at a combined value over $65 billion in the next 10 years. The need to transport troops, cargo, medical supplies, vehicles and other mission critical equipment remains fundamental to any defence force that aims to deploy globally. The importance of ready rapid response to ensure these forces can be mobilised and moved quickly is crucial for any expeditionary operation.

Sustaining and maintaining this air mobility feeds into the second aspect of this important event. Air-to-Air refuelling remains vital to deliver extended flight time for both transport and strike components of an air force and without which extended aerial deployments would simply not be possible.

KEY FOCUSES INCLUDE:

  • Forward basing and expeditionary operations
  • International operability
  • Training
  • Airlift platform acquisition
  • Air-air refuelling
  • Medevac
  • Pooling and sharing
  • Tactical, humanitarian and strategic airlift
  • Ground support equipment
