In today’s complex and ever changing operational environment, the demand for increased situational awareness continues to grow. As a decisive and indispensable tool, air based ISTAR is increasingly relied upon to deliver this capability, allowing commanders to understand the situation on the ground and act accordingly. As this need to effectively develop information superiority grows, it is essential that modern joint operations maintain effective surveillance of enemy positions from the air.



With both manned and unmanned ISR assets growing in complexity and capability there is a critical need for a forum within which optronics, power, sensor suites and operational reliability of these platforms can be discussed.




SMi Group are delighted to host in London the fourth annual Airborne ISR Conference partnered with Leonardo and Rafael Defence Systems announcing their support for the event.



Whether you wish to hear from leading ISR platform programme manager, technical experts involved in BLOS data links, officers delivering new optronics and sensor suites or insight into the latest power and engine performance – Airborne ISR 2018 will provide you with the solutions to maximise your future capability. 



Covering direction, collection, process, dissemination and targeting, Airborne ISR aims to thoroughly analyse the intelligence chain and deliberate best practice for the enhancement of ISTAR capability. Drawing on respective nations ISTAR structure, operational feedback and training, to explore the doctrines and strategy necessary to develop this vital asset.



Importantly, the conference will also benefit from the guidance of technical leaders from research and industry, whose insight into the latest platforms, systems and sub-systems will provide greater awareness of existing and future capability for the modern operator.
