Every two years, CC SBAMD hosts the CC SBAMD Integrated Air & Missile Defence Conference for all NATO IAMD stakeholders. Different from other (mostly commercial) IAMD conferences, the CC SBAMD conference addresses the IAMD community by offering relevant briefings in a classified setting.

CC SBAMD’s intent is to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas in the area of NATO IAMD, with a focus on national contributions to NATINAMDS. The conference also intends to support the expansion of the network of IAMD experts, thus helping to further improve interoperability and mutual understanding of NATO IAMD in all aspects.

After having postponed this conference several times due to the pandemic, the 14th edition of the CC SBAMD conference will take place at HQ AIRCOM, Ramstein Airbase, Germany from 23 to 25 May 2023 (with up to 300 attendees).

Who is attending?

In this edition, over 250 NATO IAMD stakeholders from the tactical and operational level as well as others who are interested in IAMD are invited for 3 days of presentations, discussions and networking.

Signing up for this conference is possible until 31 March 2023 by filling out the online registering form (Register). Please note that an appropriate security clearance is required.

Provisional agenda

After checking in on 23 May, the conference will be kicked off at 14.00 hrs with a keynote speech and a setting-the-scene briefing, followed by an Icebreaker event. On 24 and 25 May, CC SBAMD will challenge the audience to understand their role within the overarching NATINAMDS structure by providing the latest updates on the IAMD mission, emerging threats, exercises and training activities, capabilities and IAMD related NATO documentation.
