International Armoured Vehicles Conference

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.

Nations modernizing their armoured vehicles protected mobility have told us that they are placing an emphasis in 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.

Nations are training in anticipation of future combat scenarios in coalition environments. This is required to ensure armed forces have the capability to deploy with partners at short notice. The complex and urban environments of the future demand modernization of C4ISR suites in order to ensure informed decisions and clear communication.

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.
