    Delegates will hear from an international expert speaker line-up as the two-day meeting will host key decision-makers from the UK, USA, Canada, Air Force Materiel Command, NATO, France, MCCE, Greece, and more. Attendees will receive comprehensive coverage of mission planning in C2 systems, and in fixed and rotary wing, as well as 5th generation fighters, data management, and cyber security.
