About the conference



The Close Air Support Conference will be held in Reading, United Kingdom on the 20th & 21st November 2019. 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 2019 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.

Conference Scope

Now that Afghanistan has finished the  focus of military thinking has returned to conventional operations. This must be done against a background of increased threat and financial restraint that will put training and equipment programmes under pressure. CAS 2019 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. Topics to be covered include:

• Air Land Integration

• Digital Interoperability

• Doctrinal Updates

• Air Platform Capabilities

• National Equipment & Training Programmes

• Synthetic Training

The emphasis of the conference is on the training, equipment and communications of the TACP/FAC/JTAC/JFO on the ground and the doctrine and training that supports his interface with the CAS Aircraft and other Joint Fires Assets.
