'Digital Transformation' is currently thriving within civilian, commercial and public sectors - signalling a new era of data and information technology-centric thinking and practice. The armed forces have also felt the effects, both organizationally and on the battlefield.
The manoeuvre force is one such force embracing the concept, adopting technologies which reduce maintenance costs, manpower burdens, speed up decision cycles and support battle management. In light of this Defence iQ have published this white paper 'Manoeuvre in the Digital World' - designed to address the impact of digitization processes and digital technologies on the contemporary armoured manoeuvre force.
Sam Cranny-Evans, the author of Jane's Armoured Fighting Vehicles is joined by John Strijdom of Newton to discuss some of the key themes and topics raised by the International Armoured Vehicles (IAV) 2020 conference that was held from 20 - 23 January in London.
At IAV 2020, Melanie Rovery interviews Major Cory Wallace, Robotic Combat Vehicle Lead who spoke exclusively to Jane’s to provide an update on the US Army Futures Command Next Generation Combat Vehicle (NGCV) program. Major Wallace briefs on the Optionally Manned Fighting Vehicle (OMFV) Bradley replacement; the Robotic Combat Vehicle (RCV); Armored Multi-Purpose Vehicle (AMPV) replacement for the M113; and the Mobile Protected Firepower (MPF) light tank.
