London, United Kingdom, February 07, 2018 --(PR.com)-- SMi presents the third annual Future Armoured Vehicle Weapon Systems conference taking place in London on 5th and 6th June 2018.

With global terrorism at an all-time high, armoured vehicles are continuously required to operate across diverse environments against varying enemy forces and need to be able to deliver the firepower required to eliminate these heterogeneous hazards. Whether exploiting surface-to-air missiles to counter airborne units, infantry fighting capabilities or beyond line of sight ranged artillery in support of advancing soldiers, modern armoured vehicles continue to rely a myriad of weapon systems to deliver the lethality required to achieve their mission objectives.

Future Armoured Vehicle Weapon Systems conference 2018 promises to delve into the heart of lethality systems within international mounted formations. The two-day event will cover research in development of new armaments and munitions for armoured vehicles, generic modular designs that enable platform interoperability, targeting and tracking systems and operational feedback from training and gunnery exercises and schools.
