Both within the conventional and asymmetrical environments, armoured vehicle lethality has always (and continues to offer), a vital means of boosting the combat effectiveness of ground forces. However, it is our belief that this conference is particularly timely. As the US Army increases its presence of heavy armour in Europe to the highest levels seen in years, there is a need to develop offensive assets and the deterrence capabilities that the armoured vehicle provides. In recent years hostile actors have increased their own combat vehicles protection, armament and fires to near peer status. There is therefore a need to re-examine and access the effectiveness of NATO fighting vehicle offensive capability and means of countering threats.
As the only conference of its type dedicated to this area, Future Armoured Vehicles Weapon Systems will discuss the doctrine, concepts of operation, training and technologies at the heart of armoured vehicle lethality.
Drawing on experiences from previous operations and ongoing activity in the capability development space, future requirements will be presented and discussed. Importantly, to increase awareness of the technologies and capabilities that might be leveraged, an examination of the latest weapon systems, vehicle configurations, smart munitions, fire control, targeting, simulation and autonomous technology, shall be just some of the areas covered.
