The Royal Australian Air Force will be conducting its biennial Air Power Conference on the theme of Air Power in a Disruptive World over the period 20-21 March 2018 at the National Convention Centre in Canberra. The Conference attracts more than 1000 delegates drawn from national and international Air Forces and other military Services, Government, Defence Industry, academia and think tanks. The biennial Air Power Conference has grown into a regionally and internationally respected forum which has engaged a number of important and relevant air power themes. The 2018 Conference will provide another opportunity for the defence and security community to come together to explore how air forces are able to fully shape and exploit strategy, tactics and technology within joint military, national security and coalition operations in the emergent security environment. Led by top international and Australian experts, we will explore how geo-political strategy, environmental change and technology-based innovation are both disrupting and driving change across every level of national security. Some military organisations are well equipped to capitalise on disruption, whilst others struggle to define what the implications may be for their organisations. In this fast paced new world of innovation, increased global instability and new technology, we are seeking to offer a fresh perspective from which military forces might consider disruptors and drivers effecting that environment.  Themes for the 2018 Air Power Conference viewed through the lens of air power, military and national strategy include: AI, Cyber, Simulation Energy, Climate and Nuclear Security Geo-Political Interests and security policy Space and Uninhabited Aerial Systems Industry Collaboration People, Machines and the military in the digital age

Most Air Force and senior military leaders in the western world begin their military careers either around or shortly after the Falkland Wars which were watched globally as an epic air, sea, and amphibious campaign; conventionally fought at the ends of the earth and at the end of an immense supply chain for the British Forces. The decades that followed saw warfare in the Balkans and Middle East, and counter insurgency operations in Afghanistan; warfare very different from that postured for during the cold war, and exercised in high end air combat exercises. The Australian Defence White Paper 2016 and the associated Force Structure Review was written to an Office of National Assessment Strategic Environment to 2035 against this paradigm, whilst recognizing impending change. The subsequent rate of change in global security has shocked even pessimistic observers and we face the heightened risk of high intensity, non-permissive air environments non-discretionary wars”.
