User Details

For modern mechanised forces, the ability to act quickly and decisively is vital. However, to perform in such a way, an intimate knowledge of the surrounding environment is necessary. Given the confined and highly protected nature of the armoured vehicle, this can often be difficult, with crews becoming easily disorientated. Additionally, the armoured vehicle is becoming increasingly relied upon as a gatherer and distributor of intelligence within the network, with fully digitalized platforms now setting the standard.

Future Armoured Vehicle Situational Awareness shall tackle these challenges head on, inviting programme managers, operational flag officers, research, as well as the senior engineers and technical directors responsible for increasing platform capability in this vital area. Operational case studies, key programmes, vetronics architectures and the development of advanced sensors, optronics and communication equipment shall be just some of the key areas presented by leading figures within the field. As well as providing an invaluable opportunity to gain insight into these areas, extensive opportunities for networking shall be offered to all who attend.
