The agenda has been released and online registration is now live for SMi Group's 2nd Air Missile Defence Technology Conference and Exhibition which takes place in Prague on 24 & 25 October 2017.

The two-day conference comes at a relevant time, with more nations planning to upgrade or replace their AMD systems and looking to industry to provide their next generation platforms. Furthermore, as regional tensions in Eastern Europe arise, AMD continues to be a crucial capability to maintain in order to compete against new and modern threats including cruise and ballistic missiles and UAVs.

Bringing together air defence operators and technical experts from the military and industry, the event agenda has been curated to provide a discussion on threats to the increasingly complex air space and the solutions available to defeat these threats from the air including missiles, rockets, artillery, planes and unmanned aerial vehicles.

Highlights of this year includes senior representation from the V4 to discuss further integration for air defence and policing; expert briefings from more industry solution providers including Lockheed Martin, MBDA, Northrop Grumman and Weibel Scientific; and an exclusive keynote from the IAMD Programme Manager of the US Army's PEO Missiles and Space.
