The Middle East Missile and Air Defense Symposium (MEMAD 2012)


MEMAD was established in 2008 by INEGMA under the highly prestigious patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces and Crown Price of Abu Dhabi, and under the full support of the UAE Armed Forces to facilitate decision-makers from GCC militaries and missile defense organizations to plan and prepare for the most effective missile defense systems anywhere in the world.

As the first dedicated missile defense event in the Middle East, MEMAD set the benchmark with speaker panels comprised of Senior Officials and authoritative experts to provide in-depth insights into key strategic themes in integrated air and missile defense.  

MEMAD offers participants unparalleled discussion and access to expertise that underpins thinking on the development of modern multi-layered missile defenses against the spectrum of emerging air and missile threats in a highly focused environment.
