Air Missile Defence Technology Conference - 01/06/2017

PEO Missiles and Space to explore plug and play air defence capabilities in Prague

SMi has confirmed that Mr Michael Chandler, Program Manager for Integrated Air and Missile Defence, PEO Missiles and Space - US Army has joined the experts presenting at the 2nd annual Air Missile Defence Technology Conference which takes place on 24th & 25th October in Prague.

Speaking on Day 1 of the conference, Mr Chandler will present a talk on "establishing a net-centric, plug and play air defence capability for the US Armed Forces". Highlights of his presentation include:

  • Creating common architecture and interfaces to enable full integration of command, fire and sensor systems into a joint network.
  • Outlining the IBCS: plans and opportunities
  • Enabling faster combination of US and allied systems and information for fast responses to detected threats

Mr Chandler’s presentation comes at a relevant time as NATO-aligned Baltic states continue to pursue greater collaboration with the US on joint purchase of offensive weapon systems. Leaders are eager to secure such commitment as part of ongoing plans to both increase budgets and strengthen their collective defense structures and capabilities, particularly the development of a common air defense.

The event programme will also include senior military briefings from the Czech Armed Forces, Polish Air Forces, Hungarian Army, Slovakian Air Force, US Army, BALNET, US EUCOM and the Royal Netherlands Army; as well as key industry presentations from Weibel Scientific, MBDA, Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman.
