With asymmetric warfare at an all-time high, armoured vehicles are continuously required to operate across diverse environments against varying enemy forces, and need to be able to deliver the firepower required to eliminate these heterogeneous hazards. Whether exploiting surface-to-air missiles to counter airborne units, infantry fighting capabilities or beyond line of sight ranged artillery in support of advancing soldiers, modern armoured vehicles continue to rely on a myriad of weapon systems to deliver the lethality required to achieve their mission objectives.

SMi’s two-day meeting promises to delve into the heart of lethality systems within international mounted formations. Here is an overview of what delegates can expect from this year's conference:

8 key topics discussed: International and Host Nation Keynote Presentations, Next Generation Armoured Vehicle Capability, Industry Technical Developments - Ammunition and Turrets, US Army Cavalry Platforms Present and Future, Weapon System Optimisation across North America, Industry Perspectives on Armoured Vehicle Development, Weapon System Trials, Research and Development, Open Architecture Approaches to Armoured Assets.
