The resounding success of the EuMW Defence/Security Forum since its inception in 2010 has prompted the joint organisers, the European Microwave Association (EuMA) and Microwave Journal, to continue EuMW’s coverage of the Defence and Security sector with special emphasis being given to space and defence issues this year, hence this years event is to be called the Defense, Security and Space Forum. Following the format that attracted over 350 attendees in Manchester, the 2012 EuMW Defence & Space Forum will again offer delegates the opportunity to benefit from the expertise and experience of representatives from government defence/space agencies and leading defence/space contractors who will provide insights into how their organizations view future developments in space and defence and the role of technology in addressing these developments. 2012 EuMW Defence, Security and Space Forum Format The Early Morning Session will focus on Defence, Security and Space from an industrial perspective and consider the application of the microwave technology that is being developed to address the important issues of the day. The Late Morning Session incorporates the EuRAD Opening Session into the EuMW Defence, Security and Space Forum for the first time. It will set the scene for the conference and offer an overview of prevalent defence and security issues as well as the latest technologies deployed either on the ground or in space and will highlight synergies between the industrial defence and space sector.
As in 2011, the Lunch and Learn Session will provide a Market Analysis perspective of the defence and security sector. The Afternoon Session will consider Defence and Space issues. Tutorials by industry and agency experts will give an insight into the latest developments. The Evening Executive Forum will, as usual, feature Executives from space and defence agencies and leading defence/space contractors who will consider the issues that their organizations are currently addressing and the role that technology has to play. The Executive Forum will conclude with an open panel discussion with questions from the floor. The day’s proceedings will conclude with a Cocktail Reception which will give delegates the unique opportunity to discuss the issues raised in an informal setting.
