Farnborough Defense Expo Planned
In 2014 the Farnborough airshow will play host to a new event, the Global Intelligent Systems Expo. Air Vice Marshal Baz North, the RAF’s assistant chief of the air staff, announced yesterday at the ADS Defence Conference that the expo will constitute a conference and workshops, plus both static and dynamic displays, to provide a forum for the advancement of intelligent systems and their application. The expo is a collaboration between ADS, Farnborough International and the UK MoD. The latter’s participation is being headed by the newly established Unmanned Air Systems Capability Development Centre at Boscombe Down, which achieved IOC in April. As a prelude to the 2014 event, the first iteration of Global Intelligent Systems Expo will take place here at Farnborough next year, in the week starting July 15.
