Please join the Scowcroft Center for Strategy and Security and its Forward Defense practice for our latest event on “Airpower After Ukraine: The Future of Air Warfare.”

This public event will take place on Tuesday, September 6, 2022, from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. ET via Zoom. It will launch an essay series examining how air war is changing amid the conflict in Ukraine. Register by clicking the button above.

The war in Ukraine marks a crossroads for the future of airpower. Ukraine’s ability to wage an asymmetric air campaign against a numerically and qualitatively superior foe provides valuable lessons for US and allied defense planners. Moreover, the current conflict demonstrates that emerging military technologies and warfighting concepts are challenging traditional paradigms of air superiority, creating new challenges to and opportunities for twenty-first century air and space forces. On May 31, we will convene airpower experts and practitioners for a discussion on how US and allied militaries can learn from today’s war in preparing for tomorrow’s conflicts.

The event will feature a fireside chat with the Deputy Chief of Staff for Strategy, Integration, and Requirements of the US Air Force Lt Gen S. Clinton Hinote, USAF, followed by a distinguished panel of experts including former Commander of US European Command and Supreme Allied Commander Europe Gen Philip M. Breedlove, USAF (ret.), Forward Defense Nonresident Senior Fellow August Cole, and former Deputy Chief of Staff for Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance, and Cyber Effects Operations Lt Gen VeraLinn Jamieson, USAF (ret.).

We hope you can join us for this timely discussion. To receive the virtual Zoom link, please complete the registration form below.
