This event will advise on the recent developments within land capability, with a focus on the emerging strategic context, the innovation needed to stay at the forefront of technology developments, the requirement to reduce logistic need and streamline its delivery and the information architectures to inform and enable future army operations.
As CSR is about to be undertaken, this will allow industry leaders to understand how better to engage with the end-customer and on what, discuss ideas with Army staff at an extensive networking opportunity, talk through associated need for research/innovation and assist industry to anticipate future requirements, identify common interests, and provide the best possible levels of industrial support.
