Major General Glenn Bramhall on the reintegration of SHORAD capabilities into the manoeuvre force

Air defence capability gaps have become more apparent in recent years with the emergence of Unmanned Aerial Systems on the battlefield, which forced land forces’ commanders to take measures.

Major General Glenn A. Bramhall, Special Assistant to the Director Army National Guard, US National Guard understands well the need for land forces to operate freely without being constantly under threat with no means of defence. He will share his exclusive insight on the reintegration of SHORAD capabilities into the manoeuvre force at this year’s Full Spectrum Air Defence International and explains in this exclusive interview the reasons leading to the decision.

THE CHANGING FACE OF AIR AND MISSILE DEFENCE With the increasing number of (ballistic) missile-equipped nations and growing geopolitical uncertainty in Eastern Europe, the Middle East and the Asia-Pacific region in particular, Air and Missile Defence programmes and requirements are understandably evolving at a rapid pace. Meanwhile, given the ever increasing threat of radical institutions (both state and non-state) with access to weapons of mass destruction, it is critical that the global air and missile defence community meet once again and discuss how we can best protect our national security and infrastructure against these rising threats. Ahead of the 10th annual Integrated Air & Missile Defence conference (28-30 March; London, England), Defence IQ surveyed hundreds of its readers involved in this domain to get a perspective on the changes occurring in the AMD environment…Read the results of our world wide survey here!
Changing Face of Missile Defence

Changing Face of Missile Defence

With the proliferation of UAVs of various sizes, the increasing number of (ballistic) missile-equipped nations and growing geopolitical uncertainty in Eastern Europe, the Middle East and the Asia-Pacific region in particular - Air and Missile Defence programmes and requirements are understandably evolving at a rapid pace. The value of the Air and Missile Defence market is estimated to reach in excess of $35 billion by 2025. Over the last decade IAMD has established itself as the chosen forum for the global air defence community – discussing strategy, best practice, emerging technologies, and methods for enabling greater cooperation between international partners and allies. Given the ever increasing threat of radical institutions (both state and non-state) with access to weapons of mass destruction, it is critical that the global air and missile defence community meet once again and discuss how we can best protect our national security and infrastructure against these rising threats. With this in mind the 10th annual Integrated Air & Missile Defence conference will take place on 29-30 March in London, UK. Ahead of the event, we re-map the changing world of missile defence, from THAAD membership in Asia to Aegis expansion in Eastern Europe…
