I don't go to these any more, but an interesting focus:

UK Army HQ have expressed an interest in the following subject areas on which presentations would be particularly welcome:

  • Future equipment and technologies deliverable in the 5-10 year timeframe to include potential small arms replacements.

  • '24-hour digital lethality' that provides an all day and weather capability

  • Developing a roadmap to the 24/7 future force

  • 'Close in self-defence' to include platoon organic fire support, in particular filling the light mortar and anti-armour gaps

They used to have 60mm mortars but the last I heard a few years ago they had stopped using them.

I don't know much about AT systems but N-LAW and Javelin seem to be doing well.

This is the official invitation page: https://www.cranfield.ac.uk/events/symposia/sym-cc .

The target audience is military, business and academic research. Some of the Powerpoint presentations (but not all) are made available afterwards, but only to those who attend the symposium.
