Building on the success of IADE 2020, for its second edition, IADE Tunisia will organize The African Chief of Staff Symposium scheduled for October 11, 2022 and hosted by the Tunisian Ministry of Defence and Air Force. 

ACSS 2022 will be a valuable opportunity for aerospace and defense industries to witness commanders debate crucial issues, address immediate needs, and to interact with them. This symposium represents a unique opportunity for the African and international community of defense decision-makers to come together and discuss the latest emerging developments in strategy, operations, tactics, and technology.

ACSS offers extensive networking opportunities to industry partners for reaching out to and engaging with existing and prospective customers. With its prestige and size, ACSS 2022 is a gathering not to be missed for anyone in the regional defense aerospace community. ACSS will focus on the need for tomorrow’s military forces to be more agile and adaptive in its capabilities and response to an increasingly diverse array of regional and global threats. 

More than a hundred chiefs of defence and senior air force officers will participate in this conference organised around the reflection on the problems of territorial security, the main themes being

1- Africa’s Air & Space security challenge in 2030
2- Future development and challenges of Unmanned Aircraft Systems for Africa’s Air Forces
3- Artificial Intelligence & Air Power: Opportunities & Challenges.
