Future Indirect Fires Eastern Europe: Taking Firepower Forward
Defence IQ is proud to host the third annual Future Indirect Fires Eastern Europe conference which will be held this year in Tallinn, Estonia from 19-21 November.
Centred on the unique security challenges in Eastern Europe, this event has established itself as the leading conference for Indirect Fires experts across the NATO Alliance and beyond. Putting the spotlight on NATO’s Eastern Flank, Future Indirect Fires Eastern Europe will provide a platform for military leaders, technical specialists and industry experts to discuss the issues that will define success in the years to come in this region of special strategic importance.
This year discussions will look further into the development of new digitised fires systems and networked capabilities. Fire support as one of the crucial and inseparable elements of warfighting will be at the heart of the discussions along with a greater focus on munitions. The Future Indirect Fires Eastern Europe Conference will provide a comprehensive account of indirect fires modernisation priorities, battlespace integration, mobility and mechanisation, reconnaissance and surveillance, target identification, electronic warfare, and information, cyberspace operations and others.
