As artillery reasserts itself as the 'King of Battlefield' in the wake of current conflicts, and with a global market set to be worth $16.6 billion, the 23rd annual Future Artillery remains the world's most influential conference on indirect fires. The 2024 conference will explore the most pressing challenges and biggest opportunities faced by gunners, military planners, and commanders from NATO+ land forces.
Exclusively for 2024, attendees will have the opportunity to attend a pre-conference visit to KNDS head office, in Versailles. Here we will witness firsthand how the firm is ramping up production of the CAESAR artillery system and large calibre munitions through accelerated production, assuring faster delivery times to the Forces.
Over three full days, Future Artillery focuses on the critical themes of lethality, survivability, and availability in a rapidly evolving and challenging operational environment, where the kill-chain is increasingly compressed and where the ability to manoeuvre without being seen, is ever more problematic.
Join us for robust discussions on:
Optimal force structures and requirements for future fires dominance, in the multi-domain battlespace
How to leverage connectivity and collaborative ISTAR, to rapidly deliver lethal fires before the enemy can react
Organic Counter-UAS capabilities and tactics to deny enemy ISR and disrupt kill-chains
Counterbattery fires in the age of networked, sensor-driven kill-chains and precision munitions
TTPs and technology solutions to enhance survivability against the full range of threats beyond enemy fires
A high quality event with very qualified attendees which was very valuable and thought provoking.
Very valuable... it was extremely informative.
Impressive collection of speakers and very valuable indeed.
