If the answer is yes, then don't miss SMi's Future Armoured Vehicles Weapons Systems conference, taking place on the 28th - 29th June 2016 in London, UK.
Stay in touch with the most recent advances in Armoured Vehicles Weapons Systems through exclusive updates on international programmes presented by senior military leaders and industry experts at Future Armoured Vehicles Weapons Systems 2016:
1. Strategic Requirements and Material Considerations for the Enhancement of Stryker Lethality
Colonel Glenn Dean, Program Manager, Stryker Brigade Combat Team, PEO Ground Combat Systems, United States Army
What are the key requirements driving the development of Stryker and what can we expect in future plans? The opening address will discuss the need for greater lethality driven by the current operational environment, in addition to considerations for the integration of a weapon system. Attendees will also receive insight into development timelines - what to expect and when!
2. Fire Support Capabilities of the French Army's JAGUAR Armoured Vehicle
Major Xavier Lepiouffe, Technical Manager, JAGUAR and GRIFFON Vehicles, SCORPION Programme, DGA, France
Receive detailed insight into the SCORPION programme and contracts relative to JAGUAR and its armaments. Furthermore, new capabilities of the new French light cavalry vehicle, JAGUAR, will be discussed and how 40mm cased ammunitions benefits a medium weight vehicle.
3. Potential Options for the Enhancement of Lethality within the Boxer Armoured Vehicle
Mr Andreas Zekorn, Programme Manager, Boxer, OCCAR
Evaluation from weapon and ammunition trials will be highlighted, and how this will affect future plans for weapon system development of the Boxer Armoured Vehicle (the question of added weight and space challenges).
4. The Role of Canada's Leopard 2A6 Delivering Vital Fire Support for Ground Operations: An Overview of Capabilities
Lieutenant Colonel Scott McKenzie, Director Armament Sustainment Program Management, Director General Land Equipement Program Management, Canadian Department of National Defence
Feedback from counter insurgency operations in Afghanistan will be provided from Canada's Leopard 2A6 Armoured Vehicle. Gun and ammunition types used will also be featured, plus how target acquisition and range was enhanced through upgraded sights.
5. Requirements for Future Battlegroup Anti-Armour Lethality
Dr Mike Dalzell, Capability Advisor, Mounted Close Combat, British Army HQ
Discussion will centre on how to achieve integrated anti-armour capability in close combat, in addition to an examination of the challenges of future armoured targets (including Active Protection).
