SMi is delighted to announce the return of the Future Soldier Technology conference which will commence on 10th-11th March 2020 in London, alongside a pre-conference focus day dedicated to Dismounted Soldier Situational Awareness on the 9th of March.

Future soldier programmes are essential in ensuring that soldiers can continue to operate efficiently in hostile terrains and environments. Technological advances are surging the industry forward, and it’s critical to understand the priorities of armed forces programme managers.

 

The two-day agenda will provide a unique opportunity to discuss current requirements and experiences in equipment modernisation, and also discover how emerging technologies and materials are used to overcome challenges. Not only this, delegates will have the opportunity to meet and network with service providers and military and government end-users from around the world.

 

As the only event dedicated to enhancing solider modernisation programmes, the Future Soldier Technology conference is an important diary date for those in the military domain.

 

Highlights of Future Soldier Technology 2020 will include:

  • A unique opportunity to see how different nations are leveraging emerging technologies to enhance dismounted capabilities.
  • Focus on the key areas of dismounted soldier capability: Lethality, Survivability, Sustainability, C4i and Power.
  • An industry hosted evening networking drinks reception.
  • Exhibition room for industry to showcase their soldier modernisation capabilities.
  • A pre-conference, Dismounted Soldier Situational Awareness Focus Day on 9th March, exploring how new technologies within tactical communications, ISTAR, battlespace management, Command & Control networks, immersive technologies and displays are assisting the warfighter.
  • Future Soldier Technology will celebrate its 6th anniversary this year and it is our intention to build on the successes of last year.
  • Last year’s event attracted the largest ever geographical spread in its history, with attendees from over 27 nations in 2019 - more expected in 2020!
