The ability to make accurate, decisive decisions is more important than ever for today’s mechanised forces. Complex counter insurgency operations have demonstrated the need for timely visual intelligence and comprehensive information sharing to meet a challenging and constantly changing environment. Simultaneously, future land forces must prepare for high intensity conflict, where information superiority and surveillance capability may be challenged by a technologically capable enemy. For advantages to be maintained, an intimate understanding of the capabilities available must be explored. With particular focus on the collaboration between military, research and industry, SMi’s 2nd annual Future Armoured Vehicles Situational Awareness conference invites not only the programme managers, capability directors and operational commanders from the armed forces, but also ensures that the senior engineers, chief scientists and platform managers from the leading solution providers are present.
