Future Indirect Fires Eastern Europe: Taking Firepower Forward
We are incredibly pleased to announce the Future Indirect Fires Eastern Europe conference taking place between 27-29 November 2018 in Prague, Czech Republic.
The rapidly changing operating environment has prompted many militaries to initiate vigorous modernisation programmes and continue investing resources into the training of personnel. The Czech Republic recently launched an ambitious procurement plan which includes digitisation of fires C2, and the acquisition of NATO standardised 155mm howitzers and 120mm mortar systems. Other European nations have also announced tenders to modernise existing assets, procure NATO compliant platforms, and attain interoperability in response to Russian aggression om the Eastern flank.
In light of the NATO Enhanced Forward Presence operation, it is evermore critical to support allied nation’s fires initiatives and advance firepower by upgrading precision engagement, target acquisition, and long-range fire support capability. All this in an operating environment that requires careful signature management.
The Future Indirect Fires Eastern Europe Conference will provide a comprehensive account of indirect fires modernisation priorities, battlespace integration, mobility and mechanisation, reconnaissance & surveillance, target identification, smart munitions, electronic warfare, and information & cyberspace operations.
