War fighters convene to review advances in high-threat surface-to-air missiles

China, North Korea, Russia, and Iran have shown substantial growth in their Integrated Air Defense and Surface-to-Air Missile programs, posing a significant threat to the air superiority long enjoyed by the United States and its allies.

The Association of Old Crows and the Defense Intelligence Agency’s Missile and Space Intelligence Center come together at Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Ala., to present Performance & Vulnerabilities of Modern IADs/SAMs Conference.

Scheduled for June 19-21, this three-day symposium provides an in-depth review of technical analysis of both modern IADs and SAMs. Discussions cover threat system capabilities and vulnerabilities, status of new development programs, and identify the current and projected proliferation of high-interest air defense systems.

Presentations include detailed scientific and technical theory of operation, characteristics and performance assessments, and vulnerabilities. The information is pertinent for weapons developers, Electronic Attack/Electronic Program developers and users, cyber operations planners and operators, as well as other SAM and IAD analysts in the community. In addition to technical SAM presentations, an overview of the air defense network, command and control details, and some early warning radars specific to Iran and North Korea will be discussed. This conference is designed to specifically address modern IADs and SAM system performance and theory of operation but also deals with operational aspects of SAM system testing, training, and doctrine.

Spanning three days in a classified setting, attendance at this event is vital for those involved in the design, development, testing, evaluation and employment of electronic warfare systems, cyber operations in theater, techniques and tactics for protection of U.S. and allied aircraft and RPAs.
