The Weapon Systems and Technology Group have two more events planned for 2015, which will look back at past programmes, consider where we are now and look to future planning:

Conference: Delivering Capability – A Balance Between Weapon and Platform (London / 20 November 2015)

A call for papers is currently open for this conference and the deadline for submitting papers is Friday 3 July.

Capability has been defined as a combination of means, method and political will. Focusing on the means as a combination of the weapon and platform, it is arguable whether the balance of sophistication is correct. Are there different constructs between the two that can give greater utility from a fixed defence budget? 

Why speak at one of our conferences?
-Share and gain knowledge – showcase your research and voice your own ideas to a relevant and targeted audience
-Get involved in the debate – put your views across and engage with other speakers and delegates through Q&A sessions
-Raise your profile – both professionally as an individual and commercially as a company representative
-Network – meet representatives from a wide variety of companies in your sector and be at the heart of the conversations as a speaker
-Complimentary registration - speakers are able to attend this event for free
