Did you know that…
 The total value of the market for Surface-to-Air Missiles is forecast at $21 Billion over the next 10 years?
 The U.S. and Europe will hold the greatest share of this market?
 The production of some 82,000 missiles by 30 manufacturers is expected over the 10 year period?

Increasingly Sophisticated Air Threats, such as Supercruising Fighters, Cruise and Ballistic Missiles are resulting in more complex and demanding design requirements for Ground and Ship Based Air Defence Systems. New requirements continue to emerge for Surface-to-Air Weapon systems and funding allocations continue to attract high priorities. Many European countries, including Germany and Poland are seeking to update their Air Defences and NATO continues to develop its Air Defence Strategy.

Now, more than ever, it is vital to understand where exactly the capability lies for Air Defence Systems and what can be done to maximise this capability. That is why the two-day conference, Air Defence Systems (16th-17th September 2008, Maritim Hotel, Berlin) will gather key government and industry decision makers at the forefront of the Air Defence Systems market, who are likely to influence future plans, budgets and requirements. Key subjects that will be covered, include:
