The AeroSpace and Defence Industries Association of Europe (ASD) represents the aeronautics, space, defence and security industries in Europe in all matters of common interest with the objective of promoting and supporting the competitive development of the sector. ASD's membership is composed of 15 major European aerospace and defence companies and 27 member associations in 20 countries. In 2013 over 3000 aeronautics, space and defence companies in these countries employed more than 777,000 people and generated a turnover of €197.3 billion.


The essence of the Association is to provide a single platform for the development of joint positions for the industries it represent.

Adept at spreading the word regarding new policies and possible legislative development, ASD raises awareness and promotes the values and positions of its members to all EU institutions.
