The Close Air Support Conference will be held in Reading, United Kingdom on the 14th & 15th November 2018. The aim of the Close Air Support Conference is to provide an opportunity for military, government and industry personnel involved with Close Air Support and Close Air Support programmes to share programme updates, future requirements, new technologies and Lessons Identified relating to Close Air Support and contemporary operations.
CAS 2018 will feature presentations from various nations that focus on the preparation, training, equipment and joint fires support provided to the JTAC/JFO/TACP for the dismounted fight.
The event will provide a dedicated forum to assess Close Air Support operations from a FAC/JTAC perspective, addressing all the key issues such as training, improving communications networks and lessoning the burden of equipment for the dismounted FAC/JTAC. It will also assess the wider strategic context of FAC operations, looking at the land battlefield, increased air/land integration and how future capabilities will be implemented. The conference will share operational experiences and future strategies from militaries across Europe, North America and Middle East.
