Future Indirect Fires Summit

26 September, 2018 - 28 September, 2018, Lawton, OK, United States

NATO defines indirect fire as "Fire delivered at a target which cannot be seen by the aimer." Indirect fire is most commonly associated with field artillery and is also used in regards to mortars.

The US Armed Forces are fearful of causing too many civilian casualties and missing desired threats, which pose significant risks to life in combat environments. The more precise the weapons are, the less shots are fired and the less shots returned on them. In addition, the US Armed Forces are mindful of the possibility of being overmatched in this capability, with near peers holding advantages in terms of distance and precision.

With indirect fires' growing precision and lethality remaining of utmost importance, our conference will enable attendees to:
  • Discuss achieving greater integration of artillery and mortars pieces into the joint fires environment;
  • Identify future increases in the mobiility of artillery and mortars for future rapid response deployment;
  • Hear from experts on the need to increase effectiveness of artillery guns, ammunition and target systems, range, scalability, destruction, accuracy, and target acquisition;
  • Connect with vendors from around the country;
  • Network with a variety of public- and private sector figures to determine future practices

Join us at this timely event to review burgeoning initiatives and successes in indirect fires technology and discuss what steps can be taken to deliver more effective indirect fire capabilities.
