VenueDorint Hotel Don Giovanni Prague

SMi's Air Missile Defence Technology Conference will take place on the 24th-25th of October 2016 at the Dorint Hotel Don Giovanni in Prague, Czech Republic.

Military forces are looking to combat the complex threats posed by a wide range of missiles and ensure the security of their own territory. Currently, this is perhaps more prevalent in Eastern Europe than anywhere else with rising tensions being met with a demand for advances and developments in Air Missile Defence Technology.

Against this backdrop, the two-day conference programme will provide updates on capabilities and requirements from national militaries on their Air Missile Defence programs, the challenges associated with developing those programs, the importance of interoperability between nations to ensure a cost efficient and effective Air Missile Defence strategy.

Event Highlights:

  • Hear over 20 presentations discussing timely topics on AMDT
  • 2 panel discussions exploring ways in which interoperability between nations and systems can be developed to maximise the proficiency of Air Missile Defence strategies and technology
