DVD2018 to focus on Army innovation and transformation

Posted 4 June 2018 · Add Comment

DVD2018 is bringing together industry and defence in the land equipment sector on 19th and 20th September at Millbrook, to showcase the equipment and technology that can support a British Army fit to meet future challenges and embrace the need for continuous evolution.



The event, jointly sponsored by Defence Equipment & Support (DE&S) and the Army Headquarters, will focus on 21st Century Manoeuvre and the importance of Army innovation to its future delivery and transformation.

The theme for DVD2018 is Innovation today and tomorrow: exploiting current capabilities more creatively and identifying novel solutions to enable Conceptual Force Land 2035.

Innovation can be achieved through technological innovation of equipment and systems – which will be exhibited at DVD2018. However, change could also be realised through innovating how equipment is procured, stored, held at readiness, deployed, operated and supported on operations and could include a holistic review of the workforce required to conduct these activities – be they military or contractor solutions – as part of the Whole Force Approach.

Colin McClean, Director Land Equipment, explained: “DVD2018 is an opportunity to demonstrate the vital contribution capability innovation and industry collaboration can make to enable an affordable and sustainable Army ready for the challenges of the future.

“Those attending will be able to see a wide range of equipment on display from industry and the military, with more than 250 companies expected to exhibit at DVD2018. Displays will include mobile vehicle demonstrations, equipment suppliers, spares provisioners and service providers.”



Visitors will experience a full agenda over the two days. They will have the opportunity to interact with Defence industry exhibitors, showcasing the equipment, innovative technology and support solutions that might meet the future Land equipment requirements.

For those involved in Land Equipment for Army Headquarters, DE&S and Front Line Commands, DVD2018 provides an opportunity to identify innovation, develop ideas and generate a greater understanding of technologies, capabilities and requirements.
