Future Fires Africa Conference

2 February, 2015 - 4 February, 2015, Accra, Ghana

Joint and Indirect Fires - Artillery, Mortars, C4ISR

Expeditionary, peacekeeping and border challenges in Africa are increasingly making better use of artillery and joint fires assets whilst ensuring greater situational awareness. Coupled with this is a need to increase fires accuracy with surveillance and reconnaissance and to avoid collateral damage whilst providing much needed support to increasingly complicated operations.

In the last five years alone, there has been an increase in defence expenditure to secure borders, defend natural resources and aid in peacekeeping missions.

African forces are creating new Artillery and ISTAR divisions and are looking to secure new artillery, mortar and C4ISR assets to counter ever deadly asymmetric threats from terrorism, for border security and on peacekeeping missions before it becomes necessary to commit to a costly full deployment. Solution providers and those with direct experience are invited to solve these challenges at the Future Fires Summit for Africa this October.

Future Fires Africa focuses on Ghanaian, Nigerian, Kenyan, South African, Angolan, Egyptian and Algerian (to name a few) challenges and near-term procurements plus recent experience from anti-terrorist operations.
