Future Armoured Vehicles Weapon Systems Virtual Conference

June 2-3, 2021- Online

We are proud to host the sixth annual Future Armoured Vehicles Weapon Systems, taking place as a virtual online conference on 2nd and 3rd June 2021.

After many years of NATO allied nations engaging in combat against largely dismounted insurgencies in Iraq and Afghanistan, the recent doctrinal pivot towards fighting mechanized, nation-state competitors requires both technical and strategic cooperation. By design, light infantry forces sacrifice certain capabilities in order to maximize flexibility and mobility. It is therefore vital that programme managers, technical directors and industry work together to maximise lethality, standoff, and capability from modernised tank battalions to the light infantry brigade. Future Armoured Vehicles Weapon Systems 2021 returns to provide a vital platform where international military leaders, along with industry decision makers can discuss and cooperate on efforts and build cohesion in the market.

Whether you want to hear from leading armoured vehicle programme managers, officers involved in innovative beyond line of sight fire systems, experts of delivering network enabled capability within armoured vehicles, or updates on the latest turret, weapon systems and munitions being developed, Future Armoured Vehicles Weapon Systems 2021 is the ideal conference to attend in order to return to your team with a set of strategies and solutions to advance your future capability.
