As the threats to combat vehicles and their crews continues to adapt and grow, it is necessary to ensure that the vital capability areas of force protection and survivability are kept front of mind


SMi's 3rd Annual Future Armoured Vehicles Survivability Main Conference and Exhibition returns to London on the 15th and 16th of November 2017. As the only meeting of its kind solely dedicated to this capability area, this focused conference aims to deliver a strong emphasis on emerging technologies and how these might be leveraged. As well as hearing the perspectives of senior programme managers from procurement and future land requirements, the meeting aims to ensure thorough participation from the leading solution providers currently at the forefront of innovation in the survivability space


This uniquely technical focus will aim to further cover the core areas of survivability in detail, exploring the latest platforms, vehicle architectures, passive protection, mobility, counter-IED, EW, un-manned/autonomous solutions, signature management and much more!

ABBS is currently focussed on developing and marketing Active Mine Protection Systems (AMPS) for armoured vehicles, working with three major partners who supply the specialist technology required. A number of novel, patented concepts and systems have been identified, UK MOD and Technology Strategy Board/Innovate UK Funding has been provided to carry out development and Proof-of-Concept trials. The systems use fastreaction, very high impulse rocket motors which directly counteract the mine blast forces to minimise the effects of the mine blast on the vehicle. The system are at about TRL6 and are ready for test on user’s vehicles.

Microflown AVISA’s mission is to provide a complete 3D acoustic situational awareness by detecting, localizing and classifying the full range of audible battlefield threats, such as: -Small Arms Fire -Rockets, Artillery, Mortars -Engine driven platforms (helicopters, UAVs and ground vehicles) Enabler is the Microflown, the world’s first and only acoustic sensor that measures acoustic particle velocity instead of the well-known sound pressure. The core product is the Acoustic Multi-Mission Sensor (AMMS), incorporating various directional Microflown sensors, a DSP and a wind cap. An AMMS is passive, cannot be jammed, requires no line of sight (darkness, fog, dust) and also works under adverse weather conditions (heavy rain). The AMMS is low Size, Weight and Power (low SWaP). Microflown AVISA can apply its AMMS technology to a variety of uses. One the latest advancements of this game-changing technology is the Vehicle Based Acoustic Multi-Mission Sensor (V-AMMS) which was fielded with the Dutch Special Forces in 2015. The V-AMMS technology measures the direction of the hostile shooter and does not predict it, unlike other acoustic systems in the marketplace. V-AMMS masters true multi-shooting scenarios while being targeted directly. The systems provides 360 degrees situational awareness and measures the direction of the hostile shooter, to an accuracy of 1.5 degrees.

RBT are up to 50% lighter than steel tracks and allow the addition of more armour and protection, RBT improve acceleration, top speed and breaking distance and will generate up to 70% less vibration, thus increasing the life of ammunition and electronics and improving troop's readiness. RBT added-values are noise reduction, which in turn improves communication effectiveness and allows the vehicle to be stealthier at the lowest tactical level. The reduction in rolling resistance provides a fuel saving of up to 30%, RBT are designed and developed to be virtually maintenance free and to create considerable Operational and Life Cycle Cost savings.

WHAT IS CPD?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.

CPD AND PROFESSIONAL INSTITUTES

There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.

TYPICAL CPD SCHEMES AND RECORDING OF CPD (CPD points and hours)

Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SMI Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.

GLOBAL CPD

Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.

CPD Certificates

We can provide a certificate for all our accredited events. To request a CPD certificate for a conference , workshop, master classes you have attended please email events@smi-online.co.uk
