15:30 PANEL DISCUSSION: THE FUTURE FIGHTING VEHICLE IN THE INFORMATION AGE – TECHNOLOGY & CAPABILITY

 Aim: To investigate the characteristics of the future armoured vehicle.
 
Method: To hear from those currently involved in the requirements setting, research and industrial sector that will lay the foundation for future armoured vehicles design and procurements.
·          Are we at a tipping point in the way systems are specified and procured?
·          From equipment to delivering effect: Are we moving to a system of systems; separating sensors, from platform, from control, from weapons, operating a mini-fleet of separate autonomous units?
·          Autonomous systems and unmanned/optionally manned systems’ role within the future fleet
·          What are the enabling technologies? What technologies will be included? How will they affect CONOPS?
