With an increased demand for modern mechanised forces to act quickly and decisively, the armoured vehicle has witnessed a step change in its role as a gatherer and distributor of intelligence within the network. Fully digitalised platforms now set the standard and within the British Army alone, the next generation infantry fighting vehicle, Ajax, is set to be the ‘eyes and ears’ of the battlefield.

The Future Armoured Vehicles Situational Awareness conference is purely dedicated to exploring the role of combat vehicles as a key deliverer of land ISTAR.

As well as being supported by the UK MoD and featuring a panel of senior representatives from international defence organisations, the industry spotlight at Future Armoured Vehicles Situational Awareness will provide technical expertise from those developing the sensors, optronics, communication equipment and vetronic architectures enabling the next generation of combat vehicle C4ISTAR.

Highlights will include the following industry presentations:
Situational Awareness Capability within the Puma Infantry Fighting Vehicle by Mr Tobias Baumart, Project Manage, LAND 400 PUMA, PSM; and Mr Martin Röder, Project Manager, Information Technology, PSM.

Attendees will hear an update on the The Projekt System & Management GmbH (PSM) joint venture of Krauss-Maffei Wegmann GmbH & Co. KG and Rheinmetall Landsysteme GmbH. With a focus on the Bundeswehr, the talk will explore improvement over the legacy Marder IFV and provide insight into visual situation awareness for crew and passengers via optronics and display systems. MUSS active protection systems for detection and defeat of threats will also be discussed.

Many Situations, Many Sensors, Many Effectors by Mr Guy Davies, Capability Manager, Vehicle Systems, Land and Naval Defence Electronics Division, Leonardo MW Ltd.

The case study by Leonardo MW Ltd will look at the multifaceted face of land mission systems exploring a situational awareness, survivability and integrated mission system perspective.

Vehicle Situational Awareness and Threat Detection from a Full 360° Azimuth: Findings from the Development of Antares Mr Thierry Midavaine, Technical Director, Thales Optronique SA
