What Can We Expect To See At The 5th IAMD conference?

This post is also available in: עברית (Hebrew)

The IAMD conference has become the main meeting point of the international bodies who are dealing with the ballistic missiles threat.

Israel is the only country in the world that has deployed a three tiered defense system against rocket and missiles and it is only natural that all the experts want to hear first hand from the people that have designed and manufactured this unique defense system.

In the conference we find, among many others, experts from Israel and the US such as Moshe Patel, Director of the Israeli Missile Defense Organization (IMDO), Mr. Dan Shapiro, US Ambassador to Israel, MajGen (R) Garry Schnelzer of Space Dynamic Lab, Dr. John L. Dyer of Parsons, Brigadier General Zvika Haimovich, Commander, Air Defense, Israel Air Force, and many more.

The change in the challenges to air defense in the modern era is a well-known phenomenon. The need for aerial superiority on the battlefield in tandem with the need to defend the nation’s skies against an array of aerial threats require a multidisciplinary response. The imperative to tackle the use of methods of aerial operation in a sphere defended by means of advanced aerial defense systems must be dealt with along with the imperative to provide a response to a gamut of aerial threats, from ballistic and other missiles, through cruise missiles, rocket and mortar fire, to miniaturized, explosive-carrying UAVs.

The conference will focus on the following:

  • The development of the assessment of the aerial threats and future trends.
  • An integrative conceptual look at air defense.
  • The place of active defense in a comprehensive approach to air defense.
  • Technological developments: air assessment, tackling advanced air defense systems, sensors and target locators, command and control, interceptors and interception systems.
  • An examination of economic/operative perceptions in the context of active defense.
