This year, experts from the most forward-thinking nations will discuss the latest modular technology, hard/soft kill systems, sensors, threat data management, high performance computing, countermeasures, munitions, layered and integrated protection system, architecture service strategies and capability concerns and much more!

Active Protection Systems are increasingly becoming a feature for ground combat vehicles; however, these are not the only platforms that will take advantage of these maturing technologies.

Rotary platforms such as the AH-64, are also vulnerable to weapons that Active Protection Systems are able defend against. Helicopters will be able utilize the architecture and modular systems to protect themselves from ballistic threats in mission specific configurations. This capability will allow US Army helicopters to sustain operational effectiveness in increasingly hostile environments.

To hear more about Active Protection Systems and how they are being adopted for Army Aircraft, attend the conference next month and listen to an exclusive presentation from Colonel Michael Best, Director, Capability Development and Integration Directorate, US Army Futures Command as he presents: ‘Adopting and implementing Active Protection systems for Army Aircraft’. Colonel Best’s presentation will discuss:

  • Examining future aircraft survivability requirements
  • Maximising sustained Army Aviation operations with active protection
  • Safety obstacles for hard kill defence solutions
  • Mission specific adaptations through the adoption of modular active protection systems for aircraft
