RAF Air Power Conference 2015

15 July 2015, 11:00 to 16 July 2015, 14:00

For more information on the annual RAF Air Power Conference please visit

The Air Power Conference is one of the highlights of the RUSI and RAF calendars. In 2014, the conference attracted over 400 delegates, including Chiefs and senior representatives from over thirty air forces as well as across the UK Ministry of Defence, UK government officials, industry representatives and academics.

The conference title this year is 'Securing the Skies: Protect and Project', emphasising that gaining and maintaining Control of the Air is the principal role in the UK Air and Space Doctrine, enabling UK Defence to deter, coerce, and, if necessary, defeat a determined 'capable adversary' in contested airspace in order to protect national interests. In short, it enables political choice and military options.

Given its importance, speakers will examine and explore that role and to discuss how it could evolve between now - coincidentally the 75th anniversary year of the Battle of Britain - and 2035.

The programme is available to view here and will feature the following sessions:

  • Why is Air Important?
  • Current and Future Threats to the Air Environment
  • Building Agile and Adaptable Air Forces
  • The Role of Technology
