SMi is delighted to announce the return of the 9th Annual Air Mission Planning and Support conference taking place in April 2018. The Air Mission Support market is active and operationally relevant as ever. With an aversion from placing boots on the ground in combat zones such as Syria and Iraq, air power is increasingly relied upon to project force. Commanders and procurers of air assets continue to seek means of enhancing the combat effectiveness of their platforms. To do so, effective mission planning, real time support, and de-briefing is required.




SMi’s conference will explore the technology and strategies necessary to take Air Mission Planning into the next generation, providing agile end to end mission support to air crews. An examination of emerging technologies in these key areas, presented by industry and research leaders shall be combined with operational case studies and key programme updates from commanders and military project leaders, to develop key requirements and solutions for enhancing air mission planning and execution.




Be a part of this unique event where you will get the opportunity to discuss with leading experts in the field from NATO, Jordan, US, United Kingdom, Sweden, Norway, Belgium, the Netherlands, and many more!
