The Dubai International Air Chiefs Conference is one of the largest and most important gatherings of air force leaders and industry counterparts anywhere in the world, representing a unique opportunity for the regional and international community of air force and air defense decision-makers to gather and discuss the latest emerging developments in strategy, operations, tactics, and technology.
Held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammad bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Minister of Defense of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai, and hosted by the UAE Air Force and Air Defense, the 9th Dubai International Air Chiefs Conference (DIAC 2019) will take place on November 16, 2019.
Building on eight highly successful editions, DIAC 2019 will focus on the need for tomorrow’s air force to be more agile and adaptive in its capabilities and response to an increasingly diverse array of regional and global threats. The future of Air Power will be dictated by our ability to quickly and seamlessly transition between intensity and domains by optimizing and blending current capabilities of 3rd, 4th, and 5th generation manned and unmanned systems.
DIAC 2019 will offer a series of selected discussions spanning the spectrum of conflict while analyzing the future requirements and requisite technologies necessary to operate in a new, more lethal, A2/AD, operational environment. In addition, DIAC 2019 will examine what future role future technology will play in preparing for and transitioning forces from low intensity, permissive conflicts to high intensity, contested, multi-domain operations.
By establishing a more capable and dynamic multi-domain C2 architecture, harnessing the predictive and proactive powers of Artificial Intelligence, and leveraging current advances in Virtual Reality, we can achieve a more adaptive and agile form of Air Power required of tomorrow’s air force.
DIAC offers extensive networking opportunities to industry partners for reaching out to and engaging with existing and prospective customers. With its prestige and size, DIAC 2019 is a gathering not to be missed for anyone in the regional defense aerospace community.
