DEFINING FUTURE COMBAT AIR
The International Fighter Conference 2019 returns to Berlin to discuss the future of Combat Air Power across the spectrum of operations. The utility of Combat Air, air-integration into multi-domain operations, and continuing interest in both next generation and light attack platforms calls for a broad range of discussion suited to the 250 attendees that gather each year from both large and small air forces alike.
Investment in expensive high-end platforms needs to be balanced with a requirement for platforms adept and efficient in low-intensity conflict. What is consistent is that information and connectivity is at the heart of operations.
conference format runs 12-14 November with the 14 November comprising a day
dedicated to two focus subjects; light-attack and gaining the information
advantage The main body of the conference 12-13 November will consist of senior
level presentations and panel discussions on relevant issues. The finer details
of the 2019 agenda are currently being constructed in consultation with our
conference Chairmen and wider advisory board, we are excited to soon be able to
share this with you!.
