Exploring cost-effective, yet meticulous solutions to enhance future mortar capability
Building on the success of previous events in the series, our 2015 conference will provide a detailed insight into the front line experiences of mortar crews from a host of nations, coupled with a strategic and long-term viewpoint from senior military personnel. The Future Mortar Systems Conference 2015 is a unique opportunity to learn from other military forces and share experiences and best practice techniques in a collaborative environment.
Key themes previously addressed at the Future Mortar Systems Conference include:
- Can increased emphasis on comprehensive simulation in mortar focused training be an effective substitute for live fire training? Is there a realistic solution available that can reduce the cost of live fire training to allow for a reduction in associated ammunition costs?
- The identification of a balance between the desire for precision guided mortar technology and the need for lower expenditures in a time of austerity. Are fire control systems a viable solution to increase accuracy and thus reduce ammunition costs?
- The increased emphasis on mortar mobility as a means to improve ‘shoot and scoot’ capability. What are the current and future mortar mobility demands facing armed forces? How can current platforms be adapted to meet such requirements?The emphasis on the digital battle space for increased communication, integration and proficiency.
