New for this year, International Close Air Support will run two focus sessions on Precision Weapons and Targeting and Simulation and Training:

  • Precision Weapons and Targeting will explore how decreasing payload and increasing in targeting accuracy will help to provide precision support in theatre, as well as examining how air forces hope to make future improvements and implement these changes
  • Simulation and Training will examine the benefits and challenges of emerging training technologies and why a combination of strategies will best ensure war fighter readiness – Sponsored by Indra Sistemas SA, Top Aces Discovery Air
