Combat Helicopter 2014 Conference

18 November, 2014 - 19 November, 2014, Rome, Italy

Combat Helicopter is the premier international gathering for armed forces and industry

The recent use of rotary assets during operations has identified the need for each platform to provide a multitude of capabilities for each individual mission. Original platform requirements have often been disregarded in order to achieve mission success on the modern battlefield.

Combat Helicopter provides the tri-services community with the unique opportunity to gain a clear understanding of future requirements and capabilities for next generation, multi-role rotary platforms.

Key Focus Areas:

  • Attack and Specialist Platforms (CSAR, SF, MEDEVAC)
  • Utility and Troop Transportation
  • Unmanned Systems
  • Survivability
  • Multi-role Requirements and Platforms
  • Weapon and Self Defence Systems
  • Airworthiness

Venue & Accommodation

Meliá Roma Aurelia Antica
Vía Aldobrandeschi, 223, Rome 00163 Italy
