See our events guide listing for more details


From May 18th – 21st 2010 more than 500 international soldier modernisation experts will assemble at the Olympia Conference Centre, London for the 9th annual Soldier Technology conference. This group of senior military and industry figures have agreed to come together to exchange information about their national soldier modernisation programmes and find new ways to implement innovative ideas and integrate advanced technology to save more lives today and tomorrow.

With 63+ serving military and government experts from 24+ MoDs offering delegates executive briefings on how to enhance survivability, mobility, lethality, sustainability and interoperability the depth of insight and range of information available this year makes Soldier Technology a unique forum for all those involved in Soldier and Marine equipment modernisation.

Those attending the event in 2010, senior government, military and industry decision makers operating the biggest soldier modernisation programmes in the world, will attend to find out how to reduce weight, increase interoperability, enhance situational awareness and deliver more energy and power to the dismounted Soldier and Marine. Some of the national soldier modernisation programmes confirmed to send senior delegations include:

FIST (UK), MERS(US), IAS (Israel), RIFS (Romania), TYTAN (Poland), SOLDATO FUTURO (Italy), FELIN (France), IdZ (Germany), ISSP (Canada), PROJECT LAND 125 (Australia), SLOVENIA FUTURE SOLDIER, SLOVAK 21st CENTURY SOLDIER, SCORPION (Land Modernisation), NORMANS (Norway), AFRICAN WARRIOR (South Africa), CZECH FUTURE SOLDIER, WARRIOR 2020 (Finland), ACMS (Singapore), NORMANS (Norway), COBRA (Brazil), MARKUS (Sweden) and more.

Experts from these programmes will address the crucial needs and requirements of the current soldier modernisation community. In 2010 these will include soldier-to-soldier communications, protection and survivability, human performance and training, lethality, soldier sensors and lasers and more.

In addition, through 3 highly relevant focus days delegates will receive invaluable advice on how to effectively connect mounted and dismounted soldier systems during the Vehicle Interoperability Focus Day on May 18th; how to reduce weight while managing soldier system power demands during the Soldier Energy and Power Focus Day on May 21st pm and how to link the Soldier and Marine to the national C4i backbone to deliver unprecedented situational awareness during the Soldier C4i Focus Day on May 21st am.

In response to a call from soldier modernisation teams around the world to improve end user acceptance of new soldier systems, in 2010 Soldier Technology offers delegates two unique interactive learning experiences to address this timely challenge: an all new interactive discussion-led workshop with a group of serving Royal Marines from the British Army on May 19th plus the 3rd annual fully interactive Human Factors workshop led by Major Linda Bossi, Human Factors Advisor to Canada’s Integrated Soldier System Project on May 20th.

On the evening of May 19th delegates will benefit from additional networking opportunities at the annual awards dinner and drinks reception at the Hilton Olympia. Following the popular awards ceremony which will recognise excellence in soldier product and system manufacturing, host Colonel Richard Hansen (ret’d), Former Project Manager, Soldier Warrior, PEO Soldier, US Army will introduce delegates to the outstanding guest speaker General Sir Richard Dannatt (ret’d), Former Chief of General Staff, British Army. During his 45 minute presentation, delegates will benefit from General Dannatt’s (ret’d) views on current operations and effective approaches to equipping the Soldier and Marine for modern warfare.
