Future Armoured Vehicles Situational Awareness 2020

SMi reports: The agenda has been released for the upcoming Future Armoured Vehicles Situational Awareness Conference, taking place in London in April 2020.

In an increasingly complex and congested digital battlespace, the need to provide near real-time information on the whereabouts of an adversary’s location and intent, using enhanced situational awareness capabilities, is vital in aiding armoured units to respond quickly to incoming threats. It is therefore imperative for defence forces to have a greater understanding of the capabilities available, to enhance both combat effectiveness and the survivability of the vehicle.

With this mind, SMi Group are delighted to announce that the fifth annual conference in the sell-out portfolio of Armoured Vehicle events, Future Armoured Vehicles Situational Awareness, will be returning to London on the 1st – 2nd April 2020.
