Czech Armed Forces, to present at AMD Conference, as the Czech MoD seeks SHORAD SAM system
SMi reports: Following Czech MoD's continuing search for a new SHORAD SAM system, Czech Armed Forces are set to discuss modernising Czech air missile defence capabilities at this year's Air Missile Defence Technology conference.
In recent news, the Czech MoD announced that it is resuming its search for a replacement for the obsolete Russian-designed 2K12 Kub mobile surface-to-air missile (SAM) systems in service with the Strakonice-based 25th Air Defence Missile (ADM) Regiment of the Army of the Czech Republic.
The MoD is seeking a short-range air-defence (SHORAD) solution as a replacement for the 2K12 Kub, which according to Jaromir Alan, head of the MoD capabilities planning section, reached the end of its operational service life several years ago.
According to Alan, the MoD has allocated CZK10 billion (USD450 million) for procuring a new SHORAD SAM system with a range of 14,000 m and would like to equip the 25th ADM Regiment with four batteries, each equipped with up to eight ready-to-fire missiles [Janes].
Following on from this, Colonel Jan Sedliacik, Commander of the 25th Air Defence Regiment, Czech Armed Forces, is set to speak and present at this year's conference. Colonel Sedliacik will present a host nation opening address on "Modernising Czech Air Missile Defence Capabilities"
With a strong host nation support and international expert military and industry speakers, this year's event will provide attendees with key updates in air missile defence as new, adaptable systems are now a necessity for the ever-evolving battlespace environment.
