Senior Military Experts to Discuss Updates in Fifth-Generation Jets Including F-35 at Air Mission Planning and Support 2019

SMi reports: The Air Mission Planning and Support conference is returning to London, UK on 9th � 10th April 2019, with the aim of exploring how air power support systems can be maximised.

London, United Kingdom, February 14, 2019 --( The military�s increasing dependence on air power means commanders and procurers of air assets must continue to seek means of enhancing the combat effectiveness of their platforms via effective mission planning and real time support.

In recent news, F-35�s logistics system unfortunately continues to be plagued by unreliable data and bugs, and as stated by the Pentagon's chief weapons tester, this makes it challenging for maintainers to keep the joint strike fighter mission-ready. (Source:

These issues then cause the military to ground aircraft as a result, as they're classed as not mission capable. This subsequently slows down a squadron�s ability to start flying after being deployed, and in addition maintainers are faced with a larger work load.

For this reason, SMi Group are delighted to host Air Mission Planning and Support 2019 returning for its 10th annual year to London, UK on 9th � 10th April, with the aim to explore how mission success can be achieved by maximising air power and effective mission planning, as well as provide detailed updates on the latest developments in 5th generation jets and C2 systems.

Delegates will have the chance to meet and network with the following recently confirmed attendees including Airbus, Lockheed Martin, Saab AB, German Air Force, Booz Allen Hamilton, Pilatus Aircraft Ltd, Australian High Commission and many more.
