With the cost of weapon systems and their integration onto platforms, a smaller inventory is inevitable to cover a wide range of capabilities. This naturally leads to a desire for flexible and adaptive weapons that can be cost-effectively integrated onto a variety of platforms. Defence Lines of Development (DLODs) offer a framework to study opportunities where cost benefits can be achieved. The conference seeks to identify areas where best value can be achieved through the life cycle of the weapon system.

- Weapon Cost of Ownership

- Flex and Flexibility (Leonardo Helicopters)

- Service Life Management

- Integrating Experimentation, Evaluation and Operations Training (QinetiQ)
