SMi proudly presents the next annual conference in the sell-out portfolio of Armoured Vehicle events: Future Armoured Vehicles Situational Awareness 2019, taking place on the 3rd and 4th April 2019, in London.

For modern mechanised forces, the ability to act quickly, decisively and accurately is vital. Future land forces must prepare for high intensity conflict, where information superiority and surveillance capabilities may be challenged by an innovative enemy. To maintain a competitive edge, it is therefore imperative for our defence forces to intimately understand the capabilities available, to enhance both combat effectiveness and survivability of the vehicle.

Firmly established as the leading conference for armoured vehicle experts focused on C2, C4i, sensors and optronics, the 2019 event invites not only the programme managers, capability directors and operational commanders from the armed forces, but will also provide a perfect platform for both operational users and industry to share their experiences in the enhancement of situational awareness, information gathering and information sharing.

Key topics will include: Vetronics, Architectures, Sensor Integration, CIS and Battle Management.

The UK MoD has recognised the potential of Military Robotic and Autonomous Systems (RAS) to provide strategic superiority in military operations.

After the success of last year’s launch, SMi will host its second annual Military Robotic and Autonomous Systems (RAS) conference, in April 2019, in London. The event will seek to further enhance and modernise the British Army’s capabilities with new emerging technologies. Emerging technologies and their implication on future land warfare are vast and understanding the main issues behind land robotics is vital.

The UK MoD established 5 priorities in the development of RAS: Sustainability, Manoeuvrability, Situational Awareness, Lethality and Survivability. These five priorities are what RAS 2019 conference will revolve around.

These will additionally encompass other main themes such as counter-IED, deep learning, AI, or communication systems

Conference Highlights:

New for 2019: CBRN Detection, Modularity, advancements in Artificial Intelligence and updates from the Robotics Complex Breach Concept, also benefit from a comprehensive approach to emerging land autonomous robotics with briefings from military, defence research, procurement agencies and military.

As revolutionary new aircrafts like the F-35 become more commonplace, technologies are rapidly developing resulting in operational environments requiring more flexible solutions, and mission planning becoming more complex as well as requiring extra tools for data management and standardisation.

After the remarkable success of last year, SMi’s Air Mission Planning Conference is returning for its 10th annual year to London, UK on 9th – 10th April 2019, with the aim of exploring emerging aircraft technologies, strategies and future platforms to take Air Mission Planning into the next generation, providing agile end-to-end mission support.

The two-day event will host an unrivalled gathering of senior military experts and industry leading organisations, who will share their expertise and experience in the form of case studies, presentations and interactive panel debates. Attendees will receive high-level briefings on key programme updates from commanders and project leaders, with the aim of developing requirements and solutions for enhancing air mission planning and air power.

2019 Highlights:

  • Gain valuable insights from the only conference focusing on air mission support and planning
  • Develop an understanding of the technology that goes into providing next generation mission support, and network with industry leaders developing cutting edge solutions
  • Discover the emerging challenges concerning cyber security and data management
  • Key focus on next generation F-35 capabilities and standardisation of computer systems

The military’s increasing dependence on air power means commanders and procurers of air assets must continue to seek means of enhancing the combat effectiveness of their platforms via effective mission planning and real time support.

Join us in April for key updates on Air Mission Planning from senior decision makers, with international representation from the UK, US, Canada, NATO, Belgium, Netherlands, Finland, and many more.

Key topics will include:

• Designing and maintaining safe air systems including the role of certification in each

• Ensuring and assuring safe operation of air systems

• Weapons safety and integration

• Safe integration and certification of systems-of-systems

• How military and industry can work together to apply standards more effectively to reduce the cost and length of the certification process

• Mutual recognition and the shared use of available evidence

• Certification requirements at different stages of a system’s lifecycle

As the only event specifically dedicated to Defence Aviation Safety, this is a must attend event for Air Force, Army and Navy Aviators, as well as government and industry experts!

SMi is delighted to announce the return of Unmanned Maritime Systems Technology (UMST) conference taking place in London on 8th and 9th May 2019.

SMi has recognised that there is a continuing need to consider how unmanned platforms will be integrated into the fleets of the future. With a new generation of unmanned & autonomous systems, navies are optimising their strategic position by utilising these platforms for ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance), mine countermeasures, hydrography, anti-submarine warfare, and to deliver lethal capabilities.

UMST 2019 will build on the momentum generated from last year’s conference and the Royal Navy’s exercise Unmanned Warrior. As technology and innovation continue to push the boundaries of operational capabilities in Naval Warfare, UMST will be a crucial forum for the discussion of current and future projects and programmes delivering unmanned and autonomous technology for modern navies.

New for 2019: Biomimetic Autonomous Systems, Verification and Validation of Unmanned Systems, Rotary and Fixed Wing Aerial Platforms for ISR, Autonomous Underwater Sensing and much more!
