High-ranking military experts from the U.S. Army, European Command and NATO countries are set to give in-depth presentations on how technological capabilities can be enhanced in order to ensure full spectrum air defence, this October in London. This year’s Air Missile Defence Technology conference will also host expert industry speakers from Diehl Defence GmbH & Co. KG, Lockheed Martin and MBDA, who will provide technical briefings and insights on the latest developments in air missile defence technology.
