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 19-21 September in Zurich.

In what ways can nations increase the integration of Air Defences across different planes, for example Ground-Based and Sea-Based, in an effort to create a more seamless reactive capability?
