Future Armoured Vehicles Survivability 2021 Conference

Leading armoured vehicle conference, exhibition and Active Protection Systems

November 15-17, 2021- London, United Kingdom

Our 6th annual Future Armoured Vehicles Survivability Conference and Active Protection Systems Focus Day will return to London between the 15th - 17th November 2021.

As the only armoured vehicle conference dedicated to the area of survivability, the 2020 event will gather programme managers, capability directors, commanders from the military, senior engineers, chief scientists and platform managers from leading solution providers to discuss what nations are doing to protect their armoured vehicles and personnel.

Building on the successes of 2019, we will once again host a dedicated pre-conference Active Protection Systems Focus Day on the 15th November 2021, which will provide detailed and exclusive insight into how leading nations are integrating APS into their existing vehicle fleets. Leading technical experts and militaries from the most forward-thinking nations will cover the:
  • Latest hard/soft kill systems
  • Modular Architecture
  • Sensors
  • Data Processing
  • Munitions and counter-measures
  • Capability Concerns
  • Technology demonstrations
  • Systems Testing and Trialling
  • and much more

On the 16th - 17th November 2021, the two-day conference will aim to further address all layers of the survivability spectrum including:
  • Armour
  • Situational Awareness
  • Concealment
  • Signature Management
  • IED Protection Systems
  • CBRN
  • Mine Resistance
  • Armour material technologies
  • Stealth
  • Active Protection Systems
Unlike any other event, the survivability conference is a meeting for the international armoured vehicle community designed around a series of focused discussions on the strategies and technologies being adopted to enhance crew and platform survivability. As seen in recent operations, threats to the vehicle are increasing in both scope and size. Traditional lightly armed combatants now have access to an increasing array of lethal anti-armour capabilities. With the continued proliferation of advanced anti-tank weaponry around the world, and as armed forces pivot to addressing near-peer adversaries, armored vehicle survivability remains as important as it ever has been.

This conference is a focused study on how to enhance survivability and addresses all layers of the survivability spectrum. Key capabilities that will be covered are signature management, situational awareness, armoured and blast protection, C-IED, vehicle obscuration systems, and an overall picture of integrated survivability.
