Combatting future threats in an increasingly complex world requires strategic vision and innovation in order to ensure armies are able to meet current requirements while preparing for the challenges 2020-2040.
Nations modernising their protected mobility have told us that they are placing an emphasis on 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.
The complex and urban environments of the future demand modernization of C4ISR suites in order to ensure informed decisions and clear communication. The rise of organic UAV support for armoured vehicles, and the ability to counter-UAVs are examples of some of the emrging technologies and changing CONOPS under discussion each year.
