Future Armoured Vehicles Survivability 2015 Conference

Future Armoured Vehicles Survivability 2015 conference is dedicated to enhancing the protection of military vehicles and those carrying out missions through this vital land force asset.

This unique conference focuses on the collaboration between military and industry and invites not only capability and operational flag officers to share their lessons learnt from theatre, but also the lead engineers, chief scientists and technical directors from the vehicle manufacturers themselves, who create the platforms and technologies at the heart of the armoured vehicle.

By attending Future Armoured Vehicles Survivability 2015 you will gain unrivaled insight into what leading defence nations and their selected OEMS are doing to enhance the safety and security of their troops, through the development of armour and blast protection solutions.

You will also hear the very latest developments from industry, giving you a holistic picture of how you can create your very own optimal armoured vehicle platform for maximum protection.
