Eastern Europe’s military leaders are continuing efforts to assure the adequate preparation of current and future air assets, designed to defend against the threat context of potential hybrid warfare and peer-engagement across a multi-domain environment. The ongoing modernisation efforts in the region demonstrate the response to the pacing threat, with the Polish procurement plan of USD 49.8 billion prioritising the acquisition of fifth-generation fighters, and the allocation of 20% of Czech Republic defence spending towards air force modernisation among the largest.

The nations of Eastern Europe are focused on the development of future warfare and logistics capabilities to ensure collective regional security through effective air dominance. This modernisation- paired with the continued commitment of NATO allies to continue the Air Policing mission- recognizes that the decisive deployment of air power is critical for offering deterrence and securing Europe’s eastern flank.

Taking place at Salzburg Air Base in partnership with the Austrian Air Force, Defence IQ invites you to join the 2019 Air Power Eastern Europe conference, a platform where you can share and promote your solution with the user community and help ensure that air power is leveraged as a critical enabler for the future joint forces of the region.
