Future Armoured Vehicles Situational Awareness Conference - 30/11/2017

Agenda Released for 2018's Future Armoured Vehicles Situational Awareness Conference

Senior Military confirmed to present at the 3rd annual Future Armoured Vehicles Situational Awareness Conference

Conference organisers SMi Group have released a brochure for the upcoming, third annual Future Armoured Vehicles Situational Awareness conference, returning to London, UK on the 11th and 12th April 2018.

The ability to make accurate, decisive decisions is more important than ever for today’s mechanised forces. Future land forces must prepare for high intensity conflict, where information superiority and surveillance capabilities may be challenged by an innovative enemy. For advantages to be maintained, an intimate understanding of the capabilities available must be explored.

With a strong focus on the collaboration between military, research and industry, Future Armoured Vehicles Situational Awareness 2018, invites not only the programme managers, capability directors and operational commanders from the armed forces, but also ensures that the senior engineers, chief scientists and platform managers from the leading solution providers are present.

1) The UK’s Latest Armoured Vehicle Situational Awareness Capability Development
Lieutenant Colonel Andy Simpson, SO1 Land Systems, Platforms Division, DSTL

2) US Army Vehicle Protection Suite
Mr. Ted Maciuba, Deputy Director of Capabilities Development, Next generation Combat vehicle, Manoeuvre Centre of Excellence, US Army

3) Digital Situational Awareness Through Sensor Technology Development
