360º EXAMINATION OF CAS CAPABILITY
International Close Air Support occurred in September in London. The event provided attendees with an unprecedented view of future of CAS, covering topics including operational feedback, targeting, training, Airspace Deconfliction, Digitalisation of CAS and Precision Weaponry.
International Close Air Support 2012 saw the addition of two successful pre-conference focus days on precision weapons and targeting and maximise simulation and training.
On behalf of Defence IQ we would like to take this opportunity to thank the event’s speakers, sponsors and delegates for their participation and support in making Close Air Support 2012 a truly great success.
We look forward to seeing you in September 2013.

I am attending and presenting at this event because I believe Integration of the Apache Attack Helicopter with other force multipliers but mainly full integration with ground maneuver dramatically increases its effectiveness. The Forward Air Controller has a crucial role in this integration and therefore standardization and further development of equipment, capabilities and Tactics Training Procure within the international Attack Helicopter and Forward Air Controller communities is imperative.
