3:20 pm - 4:20 pm TECHNICAL SPECIALIST PANEL DISCUSSION
To support the conference Technology Session, this panel discussion will introduce key technological questions in air defence capability building, and invite participants to debate the following key areas:
· How can compatibility and mutual functionality be achieved across regional air defence systems?
· Is Directed Energy a realistic requirement, or a resource heavy investment with effects that can be replicated through conventional means?
· Can existing electronic systems be reconfigured to positively identify next-generation threat?
· How should surveillance and monitoring capability be balanced with hard-kill effect? Should this be a national or regional development?
The invited panelists will consist of all the technical specialists speaking on day two of the conference, inviting technical insight from senior specialists across a number of critical and technical questions for Air Defence.
