Air Missile Defence Technology

22/10/2019 - 23/10/2019
Prague, Czech Republic

SMi is pleased to present the 4th annual conference on Air Missile Defence Technology, taking place in Prague on 22nd and 23rd October 2019.

With militaries constantly facing varied threats, operators have crucial requirements for flexible and adaptable systems that can counter the ever-changing battlespace environment. In conjunction with this, constrained budgets mean the importance of allied cooperation is more prevalent than ever and interoperability between systems and national partners is crucial for any future planning.

The need for combined Air Defence programmes has therefore become a common goal for allied forces around the world. With this in mind, and bringing together senior representatives from military, industry and academia, SMi's Air Missile Defence Technology 2019 conference will centre on developing and improving the technology behind AMD programmes to ensure they are well prepared for future mission requirements.

The 2019 conference will provide a unique insight into:

  • GBAD
  • Counter Medium and Ballistic Missile technologies
  • C-RAM
  • Integrated and Networked Radar systems
  • Confronting ICBM threats
  • Developing coherent international strategies
  • And much more!

5th Annual Airborne ISR

23/10/2019 - 24/10/2019
London, UK

In the complex and ever-changing strategic landscape, the demand for increased situational awareness continues to grow. As a decisive and indispensable tool, air-based ISTAR is increasingly relied upon to deliver tactical data and intelligence for commanders, as well as deliver effective strategic deterrence.

SMi’s 5th annual Airborne ISR conference will focus on the platforms and supporting infrastructures of Airborne ISR operations when it returns to London, UK on the 23rd and 24th October 2019. The event will cover a range of crucial topics involving manned and unmanned platforms, and data management and dissemination tools.

As well as the extraordinary capabilities of the systems, the two-day conference will aim to examine these platforms and their information context. Attendees will hear senior military and industry experts discuss how an array of platforms are transferring data into operational intelligence. 

The role of ISR in national defence has undergone a remarkable expansion lately, with the UK recently delivering the P-8 Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft and announcing future acquisition of the E-7 Wedgetail.  For nations such as the US and Australia, ISR continues to be an investment priority and networking these capabilities is a crucial competence.

Join us this October to hear key developments in airborne systems and the advancement of airborne intelligence. Explore the requirements of the contemporary operational environment and hear the latest technological developments in research and industry that are enhancing ISTAR. With senior international representation from NATO, Canada, UK, US, Germany, Netherlands, Australia, and many more, Airborne ISR 2019 will be an excellent exploration of this key capability.

Armoured Vehicles Asia Conference

29/10/2019 - 30/10/2019
Jakarta, Indonesia

Providing unrivaled access to the Asia-Pacific armoured vehicles market

Asia-Pacific - seen by most analysts as driving the future of the armoured vehicles market over the next ten years – the 10th annual Armoured Vehicles Asia conference will take place in Jakarta, Indonesia

Rapid growth of the Asia-Pacific market can be attributed to the increasing indigenous R&D activities undertaken to develop advanced designs of hybrid armored vehicles for enhanced border and maritime patrolling or ISR functions. Threats of cross-border terrorism, growing economies and subsequent increased military expenditures are driving demand for light or medium-sized armored vehicles. 

Tailored to local challenges, the conference will provide a platform for the discussion of armoured vehicle deployment, procurement, cooperation, and sustainment within the Asia-Pacific - attracting commanders of mechanised and armoured infantry, acquisition specialists and security experts from across the region.

Military Airlift and Air-to-Air Refuelling

03/12/2019 - 04/12/2019
Lisbon, Portugal

As strategic and heavy airlift continues to drive expeditionary capability – the market capitalisation of this mission critical sector continues to grow. Delivering ‘boots on the ground’, as well as material, cargo and humanitarian relief remains a fundamental capability for modern air forces.

With the Airbus A400M programme developing within Europe at pace, Lockheed expanding their market capitalisation within the US through the C-5 and C-17, and Embraer breaking into the sector with a new joint venture to challenge the traditional players – this is a critical time in the industry.

Similarly, the growing use of commercial providers to deliver MRO and other services has grown as the outsourcing of these expensive sovereign assets becomes a priority for many fledging and established forces.

With unparalleled networking opportunities, the Military Airlift and Air-Air Refuelling conference remains a key calendar date for anyone involved in air mobility!
