Missile Defence: Europe and Italy
When it comes to Europe’s missile defence, the pace of technological innovation is accelerating with regards to weapons and delivery systems, including hypersonic ones, within a broader, increasing geopolitical confrontation among global and regional powers. European countries continue to integrate their national assets in the NATO air and missile defence, as well as seek cooperation for joint capability development in the EU framework. This dual track presents both challenges and opportunities for Italy at military and industrial levels.
The webinar “Missile Defence, Europe and Italy” featured the presentation of a new IAI study titled “Europe's Missile Defence and Italy: Capabilities and Cooperation”. Speakers included the Italian Chief of Defence Enzo Vecciarelli, the CEO of Leonardo Alessandro Profumo, the President of AIAD Guido Crosetto and the CEO of MBDA Italia Lorenzo Mariani. The debate, moderated by the Director of Airpress and Formiche Flavia Giacobbe, has been concluded by the Minister of Defence Lorenzo Guerini.
