DVD2024: Collaboration to deliver the most modern and lethal army in Europe

On 18th and 19th September 2024, industry and Defence in the Land Equipment sector will meet at UTAC Millbrook for two days of coordinated engagement through informal discussions, briefings, demonstrations and displays. Jointly sponsored by Defence Equipment & Support (Land Equipment) and Army Headquarters, DVD2024 will provide opportunities for industry and key MoD stakeholders to discuss ‘Battle Winning Ideas’, resilience and collaboration, delivering increased capability and the ability to exploit innovation.

Working closely with DE&S and industry, the British Army is evolving; investing £41 billion into land equipment, infrastructure and training over the next decade in order to accelerate the delivery of its equipment programme, and pursuing international collaborations to win a greater share of the global land export market.

DVD is a biennial Defence industry exhibition that enables focussed engagement between Defence industry, DE&S Delivery Teams, Army Headquarters staff and other Defence community users of Land Equipment.

The focus for DVD2024 will be on delivering the most modern and lethal Army in Europe together; forming military partnerships and generating investment into UK industry through the Land Industrial Strategy; learning from current conflicts and adapting at pace to optimise procurement priorities; accelerating the Future Soldier programme; and working with industry to exploit science and technology to develop next generation capabilities to meet the requirements of a modern, lethal army.

Maj Gen Lizzie Faithfull-Davies CBE, the newly appointed Director Land Equipment, said: “The role of DVD has always been crucial to defence procurement, encouraging collaboration between industry, our customers in the Army and ourselves in DE&S as collectively we seek to continue building a more modern and lethal Army.

“I am delighted that in my new role as Director Land Equipment I am able to be more directly involved in DVD2024 and I am looking forward to having the opportunity to engage with industry, alongside Army HQ and HQ Field Army staff. The event will provide a unique opportunity for industry to gain a better understanding of MoD needs, through direct engagement with Army and the expertise of DE&S staff to advise on procurement and support issues. DVD also provides an opportunity for industry-to-industry engagement.”

For those involved in Land Equipment for Army Headquarters, DE&S and Front-Line Commands DVD2024 provides an ideal opportunity to identify innovation, develop ideas and generate a greater understanding of technologies, capabilities and requirements.
