Active Protection Systems
This year, at the three-day event, the Assistant Head of Ground Manoeuvre for Combat Capabilities will be presenting the latest developments for the UK Active Protection Systems programme. As the UK’s Challenger 2 Life Extension Programme progresses, Active Protection solutions are becoming a reality for British forces. SMi Group's Active Protection Systems Focus Day will provide in depth information on the UK’s developments for the Challenger 2 and other platforms. Equipping attendees with in-depth knowledge about the trajectory of British Army manoeuvre force protection. Alongside the UK, expert knowledge from the US Army’s PEO GCS will provide insight into the M1’s APS evolution and their unique challenges and solutions for MBT protection.
Additionally, the worlds most experienced nation with this extraordinary technology; Israel, will be presenting experiences of their protection systems that are fielded on a regular basis. This will include a discussion on the advanced Eitan APC and the latest developments for the Merkava platform. IDF representatives will explore how APS and other technology like ‘Iron Vision’ can be leveraged for enhanced commander Situational Awareness and a competitive edge in combat operations.
Vehicle commanders’ ability to identify threats is a crucial component to combat vehicle protection. Future Armoured Vehicles Survivability will explore through a variety of expert perspectives, how protection and battlespace management are fusing and leveraging technology to protect combat vehicles. This will include industry specialists speaking about the advanced AJAX reconnaissance vehicle in addition to the Commanding Officer of the Armoured Trials and Development Unit discussing how armies can leverage threat detection to mitigate risk.
As combat vehicles become increasingly active in their ability to protect themselves, new challenges emerge to conceal platforms from multispectral detection and tracking. Future Armoured Vehicles Survivability will explore how vehicles can manage their signatures and operate in degraded environments to remain lethal and precise without compromising survivability.
