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).
