We are delighted to announce the first annual Future Armored Vehicles Survivability USA conference, taking place in Arlington, VA on the 26th and 27th September 2022.

Unlike any other event, the FAV Survivability USA conference is a meeting for the US armored 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. 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 is now more important than it ever has been.

As the only armored vehicle conference in North America dedicated to the area of survivability, this 2022 event will gather program managers, capability directors, commanders from the military, senior engineers, chief scientists, and platform managers from leading solution providers to discuss what the US Military and Industry partners are doing to best protect their armored vehicles and personnel.

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, armored and blast protection, C-IED, vehicle obscuration systems, active protection systems and an overall picture of integrated survivability.
