London, United Kingdom, August 22, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- As militaries worldwide are adapting for long-term, strategic competition and the threat to armoured vehicles are becoming even more complex and advanced, there is an increasing need across many leading defence forces to focus on Active Protection Systems (APS) as a means of ensuring vehicle survivability. Future manoeuvre forces must be prepared to fight and win in an increasingly high threat environment.
Taking place on Tuesday 13th November, SMi will present a focus day exclusively dedicated to this important capability: - "Maximising Development and Integration of Active Protection Systems."
The APS day will host an exclusive briefing from the Israeli MoD on “Survivability and Protection.”
Major Aharon, APS Tech Integrator will discuss: APS development process - an ongoing mission in MANTAK (The Merkava and Armored Vehicles Directorate), insights from Trophy APS on MBT and heavy APC - An overview of the use and evolution of the system, challenges and potential for system integration to existing and new platforms and Testing APS systems.
The focus day will also feature technical briefings from the UK MoD, US Army, German MoD, Turkish MoD, Leonardo, Rheinmetall Active Protection Systems, Frazer Nash Consultancy and more. This unique pre-conference meeting will enable attendees to return to organisations better equipped to manage the APS threats of the future.
