SEGMA is pleased to announce it will organize the 1st Kuwait Air Power and Air Defense Symposium (KIAPADS), on March 26 &27 at the Regency Hotel in Kuwait City, Kuwait. KIAPADS is a groundbreaking conference in that it is the first time a focused air power and air defense event of this profile is being held in Kuwait.
KIAPADS is held under the patronage of the Kuwait Ministry of Defense, supported by the Kuwait Armed Forces and the Kuwait Air Force, and is being held in commemoration of the Liberation of Kuwait in 1991.
Scheduled over two days, KIAPADS will draw high level participation from around the region and selected international partners to discuss the most important developments in air power and air defense.
Held under the theme of “Air Power and Air Defense since the Liberation of Kuwait – Today’s Threat Dynamics and their Emerging Impact.”
The first day of the conference is dedicated to air power discussions with a series of of high level briefings exploring the changing spectrum of air force missions and related force readiness changes, developing capabilities for emerging threats, and integrating capabilities effectively in combined and coalition operational environments.
The second day is dedicated to air defense, and will address force generation and the GCC vision to transition towards a regional integrated air and missile defense (IAMD) architecture. The tentative agenda for KIAPADS follows below.
With over twenty briefings and speaker addresses, six interactive panel discussions, and eleven focused networking sessions planned over two days, KIAPADS represents a unique opportunity to stay abreast of the latest developments in regional air power and air defense.
