Agenda Released for Future Armoured Vehicles Survivability

SMi Group is proud to announce the return of Future Armoured Vehicles Survivability, the only event purely dedicated to the area of armoured vehicle safety and protection, for its 4th year running. This year’s event will be returning to London, UK between 13th – 15th November and will focus on maximising force protection for mounted personnel.

The three-day event is set to deliver a strong focus on the relationship between current requirements and emerging technologies, and how these might be leveraged to enhance force protection. Building on 2017’s successful focus day, an exclusive pre-conference day will be hosted on 13th November dedicated to maximising development and integration of active protection systems (APS).

During the 2018 focus day, expert speakers will debate the best way to integrate APS, the architectures necessary to support integration, efforts to ensure system safety, STANAG 4686 standardisation and much more. The focus day will also guarantee the support of technical experts from leading solution providers, covering the latest hard/soft kill systems, sensors, data processing, munitions and countermeasures.

On 14th-15th November, the two-day conference will aim to further cover the core areas of survivability in detail, exploring the latest platforms, vehicle architectures, active/passive protection, mobility, counter-IED, un-manned/autonomous solutions, signature management and stealth. A new range of new platforms will be explored, such as the CV90, Abrams, Stryker, Bradley, Puma, Fennek, Carmel, Challenger 2, Ajax, Boxer, and many more.
