Increased Precision, Range and Greater Integration to be Addressed at the World’s Leading Joint Fires Conference

Senior representatives from armies from nations including Brazil, UK, US, Spain and Greece will be speaking at Future Artillery 2015, a two-day conference enabling the artillery community to reflect and explore contemporary thinking on the role of artillery in the joint fires environment.

The conference, hosted by Defence IQ – a division of global events company IQPC – is a unique opportunity for international industry, military and government to discuss the latest in interoperability, precision, communication technology and current and future training initiatives.

This is required to address the growing challenges facing forces as the withdrawal from Afghanistan has been completed and many combat arms are restructuring as a result of this and budget considerations.

"Future Artillery 2015 will address the most pressing issues facing artillerymen and women of today: revealing the developments needed to ensure the on-going utility of indirect fires in the rapidly evolving and shifting battle space of the 21st century." - Christopher Foss, Editor, Jane’s Artillery and Air Defence at IHS (Global), Chairman, Future Artillery 2015
