The International Forum for Security and Defense
The aerospace industry provides major technologies and solutions designed to meet current and future security challenges.
The comprehensive Defense and Security segment dedicated to military aviation makes ILA Berlin Air Show one of Europe's leading defense technology and security policy trade shows.
One of the special features of ILA is that it brings industry and the armed forces together at a single event. ILA thus offers a perfect platform for international dialogue between politicians, industry and the armed forces.
International military conferences attracting top-ranking participants, along with aerial demonstrations of state-of-the-art weapon systems are a singular characteristic of ILA Berlin Air Show. As an industrial forum for all airborne weapon systems, unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), network centric warfare, space-based surveillance systems, MRO, flight training and simulation, ILA is the most important trade show platform in Europe.
Bundeswehr strongly represented
Germany's armed forces, the Bundeswehr, use the ILA trade show to demonstrate their capabilities including the joint operation of networked weapon systems. They also use the high degree of media attention and the public days at ILA for PR activities and the presentation of their junior programs.
