Infantry Weapons Conference

24 September, 2013 - 26 September, 2013, London, United Kingdom

Transforming infantrymen into extremely lethal independent weapon systems

Despite the progression in modern combat technology, the infantryman remains the most important component on the field. A vital part of the battlefield relies heavily on the dismounted soldier armed with the latest in personal weapons and body armour to conquer the enemy. The infantryman is only as good as his equipment.

With procurement agencies trying to fulfil the endless operational requirements of their infantrymen, several nations are now updating their soldier systems with advanced weapons and modernising their legacy equipment.

To address the latest operational challenges and requirements on the dismounted soldier, we are proud to announce the 7th Annual Infantry Weapons 2013 summit which will be taking place between the 25th – 26th September 2013 in London.

The 7th Annual Infantry Weapons 2013 summit will showcase these challenges and how they are being addressed with the development and acquisition of weapons systems such as the Glock 17 9mm pistol in the UK, multi-calibre assault rifles in India, 40mm airburst grenade launcher in Germany and many more.

Key benefits of attending:

  • Hear about the developments on lethality of the dismounted British soldier and the experience of troops in Afghanistan using the lighter Glock 17 9mm pistol as a side-arm for personal protection
  • Discuss the cost benefits and capability trade-off of procuring your soldier equipment off-the-shelf
  • Review case-less ammunition to potentially cut 25 lbs. from the soldier’s gear and eliminating the process to extract and eject the empty case after firing
  • You will have the rare opportunity to gain direct perspective on infantry weapon requirements and networking opportunities with senior-level leaders from regional and international military and industry stakeholders
