Full Spectrum Air Defence International 2019:
The Gathering of the World's Air Defence Community
As the world’s military returns to conventional warfighting roles, air defence has once again become the first line of defence for the world’s armed forces. With new ballistic capabilities being developed by near-peer adversaries in Eastern Europe and Asia, major advances already witnessed in cruise missile systems, and the proliferation of UAV’s across all size and classes, the need to rapidly evolve air defence systems has become a necessity across all defence forces.
Building upon the previous success of the Integrated Air and Missile Defence conference as the chosen forum for the international air defence community, the Full Spectrum Air Defence International has been built in response to the military need to consider the total operating environment. Designed to expand the conversation to address the full scale, and range, of air defence, the conference will determine strategy, integrate technology and define approaches for international cooperation and integration across the full spectrum of air defence, with briefings from key decision makers from strategic air defence commands and capability demonstrations from leading industry partners in air defence.
With ever increasing threats from state and non-state actors alike, the need for an immediate global response has never been greater. The Full Spectrum Air Defence International conference will take place 24-26 September in Berlin.View the 2019 Event Guide

Highlights from 2018:
Key themes include:
How can air defenders be aided by the OEM and systems integrators to smooth the transition from legacy to contemporary assets?
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
In what ways can nations increase the integration of air defence assets across air, land and sea, in an effort to create a 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, in terms of meeting operational challenges?
