The world is facing unpredictable and, in some cases, unstable times, with an increased context of Air Power competition and the proliferation of advanced weapons systems. The UK must be ready to deter and meet such challenges. The means to do so will include the development and exploitation of advanced technologies in areas such as space, cybersecurity, AI, quantum computing, hypersonics and remotely piloted aircraft. Such systems will not only enhance this nation’s Defence capability but also offer a competitive export role in markets that are increasingly expanding yet becoming more sophisticated and hence more lucrative. The export of defence equipment also offers the opportunity to build enduring security policy relationships with other nations. This virtual, interactive conference, organised by the RAeS Air Power Specialist Group, will provide a platform for senior leaders from industry, military and academia to come together to engage in discussion on the factors that will shape the way Air Forces are constituted, prepared for and exercised in delivering Air Power in the period between now and 2040 and beyond. The conference will see presentations, interview style sessions and discussions with leaders in the context of technology, indicators of the likely geopolitical context, and predicting likely developments in government and the Defence establishment. There will be panel discussions on how industry and officials see the response to change in context in Space/Hypersonics, Combat Air and ISR and also interactive discussion on the intent and aspirations of Project Astra. During the event, you will have the opportunity to chat with other attendees in our virtual forum, ask questions live to our speakers, as well as schedule 1-2-1 meetings with colleagues and new business contacts in your own personal online meeting space.

As part of the RAeS’ objectives as a Learned Society and thanks to the generous support of our corporate partners and sponsors, including Newton Europe and Reaction Engines, we would like to extend complimentary access to any RAF and MoD staff to attend this virtual event to support their CPD and ongoing engagement with the Society and industry.
