UNDER THE AUSPICES OF THE CZECH AIR FORCE COMMANDER

Czech Air Force

The 21st Air Defence Conference is organised under the auspices of the Czech Air Force Commander MG Petr MIKULENKA

PREAMBLE

The FFF Air Defence Conference will offer a unique opportunity to discuss, present and display current achievement and mainly future trends and challenges on the air defence threats and solutions (sensors, effectors, C2).
 
Air defence is very important part of air operations. New threats and technological challenges put stress on the fast development of air defence solutions. The need for quick reactions connected with new technologies like UAS or hypersonic opens top-level discussions. These new technologies require sophisticated research and development at the tactical, operational and strategic levels. This conference connects specialists and researchers from all areas of air defence (C2, sensors, effectors, tactics, techniques, and procedures).

PROPOSED TOPICS

We invite submissions of the following topics:
  • New trends in Surface/Ground Based Air Defence (SBAD, GBAD)
  • Innovative approaches in GBAD
  • C-UAS systems
  • Detection of aerial objects with small radar cross section
  • Detection of very fast (hypersonic) aerial objects
  • Tactics, techniques and procedures through the prism of new threats (C-UAS, Swarms, Hypersonic)
