4 conferences at the world’s largest survivability event of the year

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

No matter what your platform or area of expertise, the challenge remains the same – evade detection, avoid engagement and survive the hit. Attendees now have the opportunity to come together to discuss the latest challenges they face within the increasingly demanding operational environment at the Platform Survivability conference and expo in Germany from 12-14 October.

Mobile and intelligent enemies operating within the complex counter-insurgent environment are still providing a huge array of challenges to those individuals operating platforms in-theatre. The threat to combat vehicles, their crews and to the mounted soldier continues to diversify and current operations in Afghanistan are a recent and constant reminder of this. There is also the increased threat emerging against maritime and aerial platforms as well as the crews and service personnel who support them.

Says Platform Survivability conference director, Robert Kerby: “Platform Survivability 2010 takes a unique approach in offering four unique and leading platform specific conferences within one event. This will allow delegates to meet with individuals from across the field of survivability whilst being able to attend a conference specific to their area of expertise and operating environment”.

These specific conferences will include:

Vehicle Survivability – Defeating the threat and keeping one step ahead
Now in its third year, the Vehicle Survivability conference enables you to discuss the very latest threats to vehicles and their crews in current operational theatres and what latest technologies, equipment and doctrine is available to keep one step ahead of the threat.

Soldier Survivability – Developing effective equipment and training to fight and survive
Whether in the mounted or dismounted role, the protection of our service personnel when in combat theatres continues to be a primary objective. This conference focuses on the ability to provide the latest solutions to the warfighter that are lighter, more durable and above all, affordable.

Aircraft Survivability – Enhancing survivability in modern combat theatres
As the threat to fixed-wing, helicopters and unmanned systems continues to grow in current operational theatres this conference will analyse both the susceptibility and vulnerability of all aerial platforms. There will be specific analysis on helicopter survivability in the difficult terrain of Afghanistan and the continued development of unmanned vehicle protection systems.

Ship Survivability – Breaking the kill chain and maximising damage control
The rise in terrorist threats against maritime platforms and the greater emphasis on the littoral environment is causing specific survivability challenges. This conference will look at how to break the ‘kill chain’ early involving the effective design, development and signature management of current and future ships as well as efficient training of crews and upgrading of sensors to increase recoverability of on-board systems and the platform.

Whatever your platform or area of expertise

Whether it is the latest advancements in situational awareness or an analysis on the physical defeat of the threat then this is the world’s largest event to network and discuss the latest developments in the field of survivability with an emphasis on:

Keeping service personnel safe through innovative solutions
Real operational insights from current operations
Outstanding networking opportunities

Platform Survivability 2010 is the only event of the year where all major nations and organisations from across the globe involved with survivability will come together under one roof.

One of the most popular sessions focused on Russia’s Fire Safety Regulations, which generated central discussions about fire safety regulations in unique, high-rise buildings, complex objects and all aspects of a safe city.
