The Future of Military Rotorcraft Conference DSEI 2019




Conference Overview

Conference Overview

As international defence forces rebalance towards a more peer-to-peer footing, armed forces operating military rotorcraft that have proved so invaluable throughout the asymmetric conflicts of the previous decades, must now ensure that they remain relevant in a much more challenging environment.

Speed, range and height are always going to be important performance parameters for military rotorcraft, but ever more relevant is the way that the rotorcraft can survive, thrive and contribute to the new networked battlefield.

What to Expect

What to Expect

Participants will include international senior officers and government representatives who are responsible for national military helicopter forces and procurement. There will also be representatives from the NATO Helicopter Committee who will discuss topics ranging from future rotorcraft designs and programmes, through to those more focused on technology developments to make military rotorcraft safer to operate in austere environments as well as addressing how tomorrow’s helicopter will fit into the networked national and multinational force.

The conference agenda and speakers will be announced in due course.



Registration for The Future of Military Rotorcraft Conference is now open.

  • DSEI is a highlight within the defence calendar, I use it to find out what the most recent developments are in every technological area affecting for defence. Without DSEI I fear this sort of interaction, information exchange and knowledge of developments across all domains would be lost. DSEI is an invaluable international biannual event .

  • DSEI is a fantastic showcase for defence companies where international buyers, sellers, developers, thinkers, educators and the trainers can all get together. The UK defence industry is looking to recruit more engineers, scientists and developers into 200,000 jobs and up to 10,000 apprentices within UK defence companies. DSEI is an excellent tool to highlight the challenges the industry face as well as showcase its capabilities domestically and overseas.
    James Gray MP, House of Commons Defence Committee
