Additionally, the worlds most experienced nation with this extraordinary technology; Israel, will be presenting experiences of their protection systems that are fielded on a regular basis. This will include a discussion on the advanced Eitan APC and the latest developments for the Merkava platform. IDF representatives will explore how APS and other technology like ‘Iron Vision’ can be leveraged for enhanced commander Situational Awareness and a competitive edge in combat operations.

Situational Awareness

Vehicle commanders’ ability to identify threats is a crucial component to combat vehicle protection. Future Armoured Vehicles Survivability will explore through a variety of expert perspectives, how protection and battlespace management are fusing and leveraging technology to protect combat vehicles. This will include industry specialists speaking about the advanced AJAX reconnaissance vehicle in addition to the Commanding Officer of the Armoured Trials and Development Unit discussing how armies can leverage threat detection to mitigate risk.

As combat vehicles become increasingly active in their ability to protect themselves, new challenges emerge to conceal platforms from multispectral detection and tracking. Future Armoured Vehicles Survivability will explore how vehicles can manage their signatures and operate in degraded environments to remain lethal and precise without compromising survivability.

This is just a snapshot of what to expect, registration will be closing soon, those who are interested can secure a final place at
