Future Armoured Vehicles Weapon Systems will return on the
28th and 29th June 2017 to London to discuss the very
latest technological developments from research and the industry that are
enhancing combat effectiveness and lethality.
Both within the
conventional and asymmetrical environments, armoured vehicle lethality has
always (and continues to offer), a vital means of boosting the combat
effectiveness of ground forces. However, this conference is particularly
timely. As the US Army increases its presence of heavy armour in Europe to the
highest levels seen in years, there is a need to develop offensive assets and
the deterrence capabilities that the armoured vehicle provides. In recent years
hostile actors have increased their own combat vehicles protection, armament
and fires to near peer status. There is therefore a need to re-examine and
access the effectiveness of NATO fighting vehicle offensive capability and
means of countering threats.
experience from previous operations and ongoing activity in the capability
development space, future requirements will be presented and discussed.
Importantly, to increase awareness of the technologies and capabilities that
might be leveraged, an examination of the latest weapon systems, vehicle
configurations, smart munitions, high energy lasers, fire control, targeting,
simulation and autonomous technology, shall be just some of the areas
Notable presenters include Slovenian Ministry of Defence, NSPA,
