We are proud to host the 8th annual Future Soldier Technology conference, returning to London on the 8th - 9th of March 2022, and with our enormously popular Dismounted Situational Awareness Focus Day taking place on the 7th March 2022.

Building on the enormous success of our previous seven annual meetings, Future Soldier Technology 2022 will be an excellent international gathering of senior officers and programme managers who are seeking to enhance their programmes. Additionally, this forum offers an excellent platform for programme managers within the military to interface with senior experts from within the defence industry.

As the only dedicated future soldier focussed conference, we endeavour to deliver genuine insight and learning through the expertly selected participants who run our discussions and panels, ensuring the latest developments from all parts of the community (industry and military) are covered in great detail.

Future Soldier Technology 2022 will discuss Soldier Modernisation Programmes, and how these projects are driving infantry capabilities into the future and making the dismounted soldier more lethal, protected and ready to fight in the challenging conditions of the modern-day battlefield.

Particular focus will be paid to lessons learnt from major programmes, optics and night vision, ballistic protection, human factors and ergonomics, soldier lethality and soldier system power supply.
