About the event

International Close Air Support will allow you to:

  • Improve your awareness of the technological advances that can help improve communications across the battlefield through the digitalisation of Close Air Support
  • Engage in candid debate on design, sensors and weapons payload from major aircraft manufactures and systems integrators allowing you to benchmark your own programmes and ensure that your market position remains stable
  • Receive first hand insight into recent operations, testing and exercises to assess how armed forces are structuring their procurement priorities over the immediate, medium and long-term future
  • Take away in depth analysis of the evolving threat spectrum to evaluate potential capability gaps and ensure you are investing resources effectively to match end user requirements
  • Benefit from dedicated discussion on the preconference focus day allowing you to gain a greater understanding of key challenges currently being faced by the International Close Air Support community: with focus on war fighter training and precision weapons
  • Examine in-theatre tactics, Commander level overviews of joint air operations in support of ground forces and the doctrine covering FACs, JTACs and TACPs

International Close Air Support will cover a variety of topics including:

  • Operational Feedback: Examining in-theatre tactics, Commander level overviews of joint air operations in support of ground forces and the doctrine covering FACs, JTACs and TACPs
  • Targeting: Looking at performance of airborne targeting pods, ground designation units and targeting/guidance systems and other airborne ISTAR assets to locate and engage an asymmetric enemy
  • Training: How to utilise live, distributed and live-virtual constructive scenarios to prepare all elements of the joint force for CAS missions and how to integrate ever increasing numbers of Forward Air Control qualified personnel into an already complex and demanding mission
  • Airspace Deconfliction: Information sharing among all services to ensure collaborative targeting, increased situational awareness and fires coordination
  • Digitalisation of CAS: Technological advances that can help improve communications across the battlefield
  • Precision Weaponry: Decreasing explosive load and reducing the possibility of fratricide are key objectives when examine weapon capability and usage
  • Panel Sessions and Networking: No conference is just about the presentations – and so we offered unparalleled opportunities for questioning and answering that will enable real engagement between the speaker panel and audience. Coupled with networking sessions that will accommodate more sensitive “off-line” discussions, the entire conference is an extremely valuable exercise in meeting like minded practitioners and industry solution providers
