Leveraging the Air for the Future Joint Fight

Due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19, we have taken the decision to postpone the Air Integration Summit 2020.
The event is postponed until 2021, and we will update you again when the future dates are finalised. We apologise for any inconvenience caused however we will be back in 2021 to deliver a quality event and thank you for your support.

Previously the Close Air Support conference, Air Integration Summit 2021 will widen the scope of discussions and build meaningful consensus around solving shared challenges on integration of the Air domain within Joint combat operations. Within this single domain, multi-user context the re-formatted conference will discuss the most challenging issues at the 'business end' of air power and discuss the means by which attack capability can be delivered rapidly from the air in the most precise way.

Fresh light attack programmes, the growing focus on precise Joint effects and a NATO focus on greater interoperability for contested and multi-domain environments suggests an urgent need for development. As such we are pleased to host this summit to give leaders at the joint and coalition levels an opportunity to talk through their most critical challenges and share some insight into the design of their attack mission set as well as participate in the discussions that will allow them to seize and exploit the initiative.

2020 Speakers Include
