The change in the nature of the threat faced by the State of Israel in the last few decades brings to the fore the necessity to prepare for confrontations with a wide range of dangers.
In addition to traditional armies, Israel has to face an array ofthreats, from short-range mortar bombs, through rockets and missiles and cruise missiles, to miniaturized, explosive-bearing UAVs.
The severity of these threats increases with time: as the number of warheads and the measure of destruction increase, so do their dispersal, range and, worst of all, accuracy. This is a strategic challenge of the highest order for the State of Israel.
In recent years, Israel has, in response to the range of threats, formulated a layered defense doctrine based on the Iron Dome and David’s Sling interceptors and the Arrow ballistic missile.
This doctrine was adopted and developed after having been selected from among other defense alternatives.
The conference will focus on current issues, including:
∙∙ Mapping the threats and developing trends
∙∙ Examining various defense doctrines
∙∙ The architecture of the defense system
∙∙ Directions of technological developments, including sensing and identifying targets, command
and control, interceptors and interceptor systems, and more
∙∙ Examining the economic significance of various defense doctrines
Among the speakers: Major General (Ret.) Amos Yadlin, Dr. Gabi Siboni, Dr. Brigadier General Danny Gold, Mr. Uzi Rubin, admiral (Ret.) Yedidia Yaari and others.
The conference is intended for the Israeli and international defense industry, the military and defense establishment, academics, decision makers and support staff.
