Clarion Defence Ltd
: 23 April, 2009  (Company News)
As the impact of IEDs on military operations continues to dominate the headlines, more than 40 high level speakers from around the globe are being brought together in Amsterdam from June 2 - 4 2009 in what is set to be a defining conference on vehicle survivability.
Organised by Clarion Events, which also stages DSEi and ITEC, the Vehicle Survivability conference will address both the threats and the solutions associated with keeping armoured vehicles and their crews safe, examining the critically important areas of technical advancements, procurement methods and the lessons learned from operations.

Over 35 global experts at the forefront of vehicle survivability will be speaking. They include Lt Gen A R D Shirreff, Commander, Allied Rapid Reaction Corps, UK: Maj Gen Marcel van den Broek, Deputy Commander Land Forces, Royal Netherlands Army; Dr Vernon Joynt, MRAP and Anti-Mine Technology Expert and Chief Scientist of Force Protection, USA; Col Martin France, Chief Scientist and Technical Adviser to the Director, Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organisation, USA; and Dr Dennis Nandlall, Head of Weapons Effects and Protection, Defence Research and Development, Canada.

The agenda pulls no punches, posing questions about the future of the main battle tank, whether too many MRAPs been bought, the potential and limitations of defeating IEDs from the air, and what systems are simply too expensive to contemplate. Also under the spotlight is how insurgents have the ability to adjust their weapons to exploit the weaknesses of security forces, and the vexed question of weight versus protection.

The event begins with a pre-event workshop on June 2 at which Cranfield University will make a presentation that examines what fundamental solutions will ensure greater survivability in future operations.

Vehicle Survivability will be an exceptional learning and networking opportunity.
