We are delighted to announce the return of the sell-out Future Armoured Vehicles Survivability symposium, taking place in London between the 13th-15th November 2018.

As the only event purely dedicated to the area of vehicle protection, Future Armoured Vehicles Survivability 2018 will deliver a strong focus on the relationship between current requirements, emerging technologies and how these might be leveraged to enhance force protection.

Building on 2017's focus day, we will host an exclusive pre-conference Active Protection Systems focus day, dedicated to this important capability. At the meeting, experts from the most forward-thinking nations will deliberate on the best way to integrate APS, the architectures necessary to support integration, efforts to ensure system safety, STANAG 4686 standardisation and much more. The focus day will guarantee the support of technical experts from leading solution providers, covering the latest hard/soft kill systems, sensors, data processing, munitions and countermeasures.

On 14th-15th November, the two-day conference will aim to further cover the core areas of survivability in detail, exploring the latest platforms, vehicle architectures, active/passive protection, mobility, counter-IED, un-manned/autonomous solutions, signature management and stealth.
