Combatting future threats in an increasingly complex world requires strategic vision and innovation in order to ensure armies are able to meet current operational requirements while meeting the challenges 2020-2040. The 2017 International Armoured Vehicles conference is dedicated to examining the challenges faced by Land Force Commanders and the role that armour will play in confronting these future threats. The tank is dead? I think not.

Nations modernising their protected mobility have told us that they are placing an emphasis on medium-weight wheeled capability that allows armies to retain a high level of operational readiness, the ability to swiftly deliver strike capability, and do all this with a minimum logistical burden. The focus day is dedicated to these modernisation efforts, while the main conference focuses on new procurement and the inexorable rise of wheeled vehicles, while still providing plenty of interesting presentations for the die-hard heavy armour aficionado

Nations are training in anticipation of future combat scenarios in coalition environments. The complex and urban environments of the future demand modernization of C4ISR suites in order to ensure informed decisions and clear communication. The rise of organic UAV support for armoured vehicles for detection and recognition of threats beyond the line of sight, and the ability to counter-UAVs forms the subject for one or two presentations as well as the conference workshop.

This is the 17th Annual International Armoured Vehicles Conference. This is the world’s premier forum dedicated to the armour community. This is where you can make your contribution by sharing experiences and networking with colleagues from across the world.
