US Army confirmed to purchase two Iron Dome Systems ahead of SMi’s Air Missile Defence Technology 2019 conference
The contract to purchase two Iron Dome systems for the U.S. Army’s interim cruise missile defense capability has been finalised, in accordance to the service’s air and missile defense modernisation efforts. The Army was shifting around its pots of funding within its Indirect Fires Protection Capability (IFPC) program — under development to defend against rockets, artillery and mortars as well as unmanned aircraft and cruise missiles — to fill its urgent capability gap for cruise missile defense on an interim basis. Congress mandated the Army deploy two batteries by fiscal 2020 in the service’s fiscal 2019 budget. Iron Dome could feed into an enduring capability, depending on how it performs in the interim.
With this in mind SMi’s Air Missile Defence Technology conference, taking place in Prague, Czech Republic on the 22nd and 23rd October 2019 where you can hear from top US Army experts on the latest Air Missile Defence updates.
At the two-day conference, delegates can expect to hear from leading figures such as:
