Industry experts invited to speak at DVD2018

Posted 12 July 2018 · Add Comment

In a fresh development vis-a-vis DVD2018, industry experts are, for the first time, being invited to participate in speaker sessions, which will encourage debate on the challenges of UK armed forces face and consider innovative solutions for implementation across a number of key areas.

DVD2018 is jointly sponsored by Defence Equipment & Support (DE&S) and the Army Headquarters and will bring together industry and defence in the land equipment sector on 19 and 20 September at Millbrook.

It will showcase the equipment and technology that can support 21st Century Manoeuvre and a British Army that is fit to meet future challenges.
The MoD is inviting industry to challenge its preconceptions by discussing alternative solutions and clearly evidencing how the solution could be delivered to support training, force preparation and/or can be deployed in a mobile operational environment.
The theme for DVD2018 is Innovation today and tomorrow: exploiting current capabilities more creatively and identifying novel solutions to enable Conceptual Force Land 2035. The DVD2018 organisers are asking for Expressions of Interest to deliver short presentations on the four sub-themes outlined below:
• Reducing Logistic Need (RLN). RLN is a significant challenge – enabling manoeuvre, supporting the strike concept with enhanced reach and agility, set within the context of the current financial pressures. RLN will consider improvements to support solutions for land systems, ideas to reduce both logistic demand and efficient supply, the need to develop Logistic Information Exploitation (Log IX) systems, and appropriate people to manage and deliver agile logistic solutions.

• DEEP operations. The deep battle focuses on an enemy’s uncommitted forces. As part of developing the deep battle improvements in Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance (ISTAR) capabilities and Mobile Fires Platforms are envisaged.

• Command, Control, Communications, Computers, and Intelligence (C4I) systems. The development of C4I systems and investment in our ability to communicate and to share information will complement the Army contribution to the Joint Force Capability.

• Year of Engineering and STEM development. The Year of Engineering is a government campaign that celebrates engineering. It forms an important part of our Industrial Strategy, which is committed to boosting engineering across the UK. This campaign includes activities to highlight the need to develop science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) skills and improve awareness designed to inspire interest in these sectors.
Organisations looking to present are invited to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) form through the DVD website at The deadline for submissions is 31st July 2018.
