Future Armoured Vehicles Survivability 2016

Following the success of 2015's inaugural meeting, Future Armoured Vehicles Survivability returns this November, once again seeking to bring together those at the forefront of survivability development for the armoured vehicle and its occupants

With a key focus on the technologies and concepts of operation for enhanced survivability , this unique conference focuses on the collaboration between military and industry and invites not only the programme managers and operational commanders at the forefront of armoured vehicle procurement and use, but also ensures the participation of lead engineers, chief scientists and technical directors from the vehicle manufacturers themselves, who create the platforms and technologies at the heart of armoured vehicle protection
