NTD at Sea, Air and Space 2024

Naval Team Denmark attended this years Sea, Air & Space at Gaylord Conference Center, Washington DC in company with Terma, Systematic, OMT and SH Defence. The exhibitor product portfolios and the conference program underlined that naval warfare is under transition. It is more and more obvious that the ability to integrate the fast evolving three dimensional drone technology on future naval platforms becomes crusial. It was also clear that there is a growing concern about the assymmetry between cheap attack drones and expensive air defence missiles in the Red Sea scenario, accelerating the innovation effort of shipborne energy weapons. Last but not least, several conference panels with US Navy officials expressed concern about the domestic supply-lines with regards to both ship construction and ship maintenance. All in all Sea, Air and Space 2024 provided valuable professional insight and the entire visit was brilliantly supported by the Industry Team from the Danish Embassy, headed by His Royal Highness Brigadier General Joachim.
