The Combined Force approach to Logistics and Engineering
The return to preparations for a peer threat engagement has placed a new emphasis on the military support structure. There is now a greater emphasis on maintaining mobility and operational freedom whilst denying the enemy their own, placing new pressures on the combat support commander.
Combat Support Week will address these new challenges for Military Engineers and Logisticians to ensure that mobility is maintained and capabilities are able to be effectively deployed by the combat force. Assessing the critical requirements for the deployment and maintenance of a combat force in theatre will feature throughout the programme this year along with a clear focus on enabling mobility, momentum and capability by identifying innovative, cost-efficient solutions to modernise operational capabilities.
Recognising the emerging technical requirements within Combat Support the conference will enable attendees to revolutionise their capabilities in line with modern operating conditions by stimulating discussion and building concensus between military experts and industry partners on the future of Combat Support.
