Conference Day Two: Tuesday, 10th May 2011

07:30 – 07:50 COFFEE AND REGISTRATION

07:50 – 08:00 CHAIRMAN'S OPENING REMARKS

Major General Vincent Desportes
Former Commander, Military Doctrine Development Centre
French Armed Forces

08:00 – 08:30 CREATING AND MAXIMISING THE POTENTIAL OF NETWORKED BATTLESPACE CAPABILITIES IN MANOEUVRE WARFARE

  • The importance of blue force tracking for Commanders and tactical patrols in close quarter battles
  • Small scale, high capacity tactical networks to share data amongst multiple network nodes
  • Creating C2 architectures to support large volumes of tactical data
  • The dangers of too much information: Focussing on the vital information and shutting the clutter
  • Extending battle management systems to vehicles procured under Urgent Operational Requirements

Mike Kelley
Capability Manager, Platform Battle Command and Combat Identification, TRADOC
US Army

08:30 – 09:00 LEVERAGING ADVANCED MATERIELS TO PROVIDE MAXIMUM PROTECTION IN NEW VEHICLE DESIGNS

  • Assessing the benefits of current lightweight vehicles over heavier protected platform for high mobility forces and their utility within current operations
  • Managing the trade-offs of increased protection: Recovering payload capacity over sacrifices to heavier armour through the use of composites
  • Crew protection and blast deflection through innovative hull design
  • The challenges of retaining core strength and stability to the vehicle’s suspension without exceeding weight limits

Lieutenant Colonel Scott DeBolt
Mounted Requirements, Manoeuvre Centre of Excellence
US Army

09:00 – 09:30 Panel Discussion - Title to be Confirmed

09:30 – 10:00 Networking Coffee Break

10:00 - 10:30 HIGH FIDELITY SIMULATION FOR BATTALION LEVEL ENGAGEMENTS: THE US ARMY’S COMBINED ARMS TACTICAL TRAINER PROGRAMME

  • Increasing the fidelity of simulated natural environments
  • Requirements and technology developments in the next generation of After Action Review (AAR) simulators
  • Real time generation of Computer Generated Forces (CGF) to replicated adjacent, supporting and opposing forces including Combat Support and Combat Service Support elements
  • Potential for expanding TACTIS further into Live, Virtual, Constructive (LVC) environments

Captain Chris Lukose
TACTIS Programme Manager
Royal Netherlands Army

10:30 - 11:00 THE STRATEGIC IMPACT AND NECESSARY RESPONSE TO THE IED THREAT

  • The need to upgrade the US Army’s vehicles
  • Analysis of in service V-shaped hulls and their success in mitigating the worst effects of IED blasts
  • Engineering challenges in the retrospective redesign of hull shapes and the effects on transmission and suspension systems
  • Improved blast testing and evaluation of upgraded vehicles to accelerate operational fielding
  • Assessing the trade-offs of protection, payload and performance on the redesigned vehicles

Scott Blaney
Chief of C-IED Branch, Centre for Army Lessons Learned
US Army

11:00 - 12:30 NETWORKING LUNCH

12:30 - 13:30 ASSESSING MAJOR TRENDS IN ARMOURED VEHICLE TECHNOLOGIES AND THEIR CAPACITY TO PROVIDE VALUE FOR THE MILITARY CUSTOMER

  • Review of existing technologies in the armoured vehicle market place and assessment of key technological trends
  • Analysing the operational performance of major global investments and the lessons this offers in the selection of new capabilities
  • Developing a new strategy for acquiring armoured vehicle systems and capabilities: lessons learned in the last 10 years

Dr Andrew Black
Senior Analyst
Hawk ISM
