Testimonials from some of those attending:

"I see this conference as the ideal platform for advancement in this complex area, and I would hope that we can extend the debate to explore and push the boundaries. Only through networking, sharing and learning with our peers can we develop our approaches to capability development and delivery". - Brigadier (ret) Ian Cameron-Mowat, Former Head of Force Protection, UK MoD, Director, IMP Castle Associates Limited

"All the sessions will provide valuable information about the challenges faced by every nation and insights applied by every solution, as well as the lessons learnt from previous experiences. In particular, 'Generic Vehicle Architecture to Enhance Network Enabled Capabilities and Improve Situational Awareness within the Vehicle' by Major Wouter Alexander Samson and 'Many Situations, Many Sensors, Many Effectors', by Mr Guy Davies are of very particular interest for purpose of the Spanish 8X8." - Colonel Manuel Jesus De Hoyos Sanchez, Head of 8x8 VCR Programme, Spanish Army

"Many interesting topics" - Major Ola Petter Odden, Norwegian Army Combat Lab, Norwegian Army Land Warfare Centre, Norwegian Armed Forces

"I am looking forward for support solutions in others international projects. Therefore it should be interesting to listen to sessions like 'generic vehicle architecture'!" - Martin Röder, Project Manager IT Department, PSM
