Mortar Systems Technology Conference

As a vital support weapon, mortars are of paramount strategic importance for land operations and as such there is a need to understand the latest cutting-edge technologies enabling their advancement. Importantly, as technology expands, so does cost, making procurement of mortar systems a key issue. Traditional challenges facing mortar teams have included resolving issues of precision v range, increased lethality and manoeuvrability. In order to mitigate these traditional challenges mortar technology have been advancing at a fast rate. However, there is still further room for development as new challenges begin to emerge and as the environment surrounding mortar systems continues to change.

Our inaugural Mortar Systems Technology conference shall tackle these challenges head on, inviting programme managers, operational commanders, research, as well as the senior engineers and technical directors responsible for developing capability in this vital area. Case studies from key operational personnel, procurement experts, engineers and those responsible for training shall be just some of the key areas presented by leading figures within the field. Join us in London from the 29th to the 30th of June to take part in this worthwhile and essential forum.
