    See below a snapshot of Colonel Bruce Bredlow’s Interview:

    How will this year’s Air and Missile Defense Conference help shape best practices for the NATO IAMD community?

    "This conference will help shape NATO best practices in a variety of ways. First, it will enable IAMD leaders across the community to network and build relationships in a way we haven’t been able to do in nearly 2 years. This conference will also provide attendees greater insight into the differing perspectives on the air and missile threats we face, as well as the progress being made toward ensuring robust abilities to defeat all manner of air and missile threats. In short, this conference will be an invaluable opportunity to distribute ideas and knowledge to a broad variety of IAMD leaders who are all working toward the same ultimate goal."

    Where do you see the future challenges for ground-based missile defense?

    "Future challenges for ground-based missile defense include hypersonic weapons, low-observable cruise missiles, advanced ballistic missile threats, and threat overmatch. The dynamic nature of the IAMD operating environment in which we all find ourselves underscores the importance of taking a holistic approach to air defense rather than focusing too narrowly on BMD. After all, if we focus only on BMD, we will fail at CMD, which is why we need IAMD. An additional key challenge will be establishing an enduring capability to link sensors and shooters from all our allies and partners to improve the quality of training and eliminate any gaps in capability in the event conflict breaks out."
