Military Flight Training 2019

Conference: 9th-10th October 2019

Venue: Holiday Inn Kensington Forum, London, UK


SMi Group are pleased to announce the 8th Annual Military Flight Training Conference, taking place in London, UK on the 9th and 10th October 2019.

With new threats creating more challenging and dangerous air operations, and operational tempo is increasing for many NATO-allied militaries, it is crucial for pilots to train for these adjustments and constantly prepare for dynamic airspace hazards.

As Air Forces move towards 5th Generation capabilities, there is growing national investment across the NATO-allied world in flight training systems and platforms. With this in mind, SMi’s Military Flight Training invites operational users and industry to gather together to ensure best practice for more efficient training exercises, which will be shared at this international event.

This year’s event will comprehensively cover the latest developments in fast jet, rotary, and fixed wing training, as well as national approaches to pilot development and technological advances to synthetic and live training programmes.


· GAIN a holistic look at current developments in flight training across fast-jet, rotary-wing, fixed-wing and ground crew training streams.

· HEAR the latest updates from leading OEMs delivering the latest flight training platforms and systems.

· EXPLORE the advances to synthetic simulation and immersive technologies.

· DISCUSS new focuses such as pilot retention and attrition reduction, and flight training for multinational joint operations.

Air Missile Defence Technology

22nd-23rd October 2019

Prague, Czech Republic

SMi is pleased to present the 4th annual conference on Air Missile Defence Technology, taking place in Prague on 22nd and 23rd October 2019.

With militaries constantly facing varied threats, operators have crucial requirements for flexible and adaptable systems that can counter the ever-changing battlespace environment. In conjunction with this, constrained budgets mean the importance of allied cooperation is more prevalent than ever and interoperability between systems and national partners is crucial for any future planning.

The need for combined Air Defence programmes has therefore become a common goal for allied forces around the world. With this in mind, and bringing together senior representatives from military, industry and academia, SMi’s Air Missile Defence Technology 2019 conference will centre on developing and improving the technology behind AMD programmes to ensure they are well prepared for future mission requirements.

The 2019 conference will provide a unique insight into:


· Counter Medium and Ballistic Missile technologies


· Integrated and Networked Radar systems

· Confronting ICBM threats

· Developing coherent international strategies

· And much more!

5th Annual Airborne ISR

23rd – 24th October 2019

London, UK

In the complex and ever-changing strategic landscape, the demand for increased situational awareness continues to grow. As a decisive and indispensable tool, air-based ISTAR is increasingly relied upon to deliver tactical data and intelligence for commanders, as well as deliver effective strategic deterrence.

SMi’s 5th annual Airborne ISR conference will focus on the platforms and supporting infrastructures of Airborne ISR operations when it returns to London, UK on the 23rd and 24th October 2019. The event will cover a range of crucial topics involving manned and unmanned platforms, and data management and dissemination tools.

As well as the extraordinary capabilities of the systems, the two-day conference will aim to examine these platforms and their information context. Attendees will hear senior military and industry experts discuss how an array of platforms are transferring data into operational intelligence.

The role of ISR in national defence has undergone a remarkable expansion lately, with the UK recently delivering the P-8 Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft and announcing future acquisition of the E-7 Wedgetail. For nations such as the US and Australia, ISR continues to be an investment priority and networking these capabilities is a crucial competence.

Join us this October to hear key developments in airborne systems and the advancement of airborne intelligence. Explore the requirements of the contemporary operational environment and hear the latest technological developments in research and industry that are enhancing ISTAR. With senior international representation from NATO, Canada, UK, US, Germany, Netherlands, Australia, and many more, Airborne ISR 2019 will be an excellent exploration of this key capability.
