Future Armoured Vehicles Survivability 2024 Conference

Preparing Armoured Vehicles for Modern Conflict through Enhancing the Full Spectrum of Survivability Capabilities

November 11-13, 2024 - London, United Kingdom

Be part of the 9th annual Future Armoured Vehicles Survivability conference - the only armoured vehicle conference dedicated to survivability.

Collaborate across an unmatched 3 day programme - including an Active Protection Systems Focus Day.

Join forward-thinking protection experts to discuss the next generation of tools to counter the growing number of AFV threats.

As the only armoured vehicle conference dedicated to the area of survivability, the 2024 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.

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, armoured vehicle survivability remains as important a 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.

Connect with those who are shaping the future of Armoured Vehicle Survivability in the world's-only dedicated forum.
