Taking Firepower Forward

Welcome to the 2020 Future Artillery Forum, the world's longest-running and most prestigious conference on indirect fires.

It is no coincidence that the fielding of a long-range precision fires capability tops the US Army's list of modernisation priorities. The importance of artillery as a joint enabler has been consistently underlined by concepts of operation that describe a contested future battlespace - where the predominance of A2/AD technologies deny the air superiority on which NATO has come to rely.

The Future Artillery conference remains the premier platform for discussing those next-generation systems that will provide a decisive long-range fires capability for future multi-domain operations. New in 2020, the conference will look not just at the systems themselves, but at the network and ISTAR enterprise that will be integral to applying fires in the future land and joint environment. It provides an opportunity for 200 defence and industry leaders from more than 20 countries to gather and overcome shared challenges relating to future force design, training, capability and - perhaps most importantly - interoperability.

Join the artillery community in London next May as they seek to deliver a digitized, networked and agile precision fires capability today, in readiness for operations tomorrow.

A high quality event with very qualified attendees which was very valuable and thought provoking.
