The Future of Military Rotorcraft Conference
Delivered in partnership with the NATO Joint Capability Group Vertical Lift (JCG VL), the Future of Military Rotorcraft 2019 will focus on ‘Enhancing Rotorcraft Relevance in the Networked Battlefield’.
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 perimeters for military rotorcraft, but ever more relevant is the way that the rotorcraft can survive, thrive and contribute to the new networked battlefield.
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.
