At the 2018 International Armoured Vehicle Forum, Major General Karl Engelbrektson, Army of Sweden gave this presentation entitled "Communicating the Land Power Narrative"; the presentation covers the following points:
'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. Newly released US Army footage gives a demonstration of testing and evaluation carried out.
A Digital Platform to Engage with the Defence Community
Defence iQ’s digital platform and publications provide traditional and non-traditional defence companies, SMEs and start-ups with an invaluable touchpoint from which to connect with and educate a global network of military end users and government about their strategic vision, new products, and latest technological developments.
It is imperative for industry to have a variety of routes by which to engage with existing and potential defence customers. In this current climate, effective digital marketing strategies will be crucial in ensuring that industry can continue to demonstrate thought leadership, market new products, and maintain strong global brand awareness.
Defence iQ has invested a digital platform that allows industry stakeholders to deliver their message, 24/7, 365 days a year. We are ready and equipped to drive value for our industry partners and the wider Defence community through our bespoke digital offerings.

Led and moderated by the Robotics Requirements Branch of U.S. Army Futures Command, the Unmanned Ground Vehicles conference provides a dedicated platform to compliment discussions at International Armoured Vehicles and deep dive into the world of autonomous land systems. This is an important opportunity for both traditional and non-traditional defence industry partners to receive feedback, updates and initial requirements for robotics and autonomous systems efforts from across the alliance.To find out more and see the full agenda, fill out the form on the right >>

The rise of global megacities and the increasing fragility of metropolitan spaces due to environmental and geopolitical crises suggests that the likelihood of future conflict taking place in the urban environment is increasing. Recognizing this, land forces are modernizing their capability portfolios to enable them to fight and win in urban operations, and Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs) will play a critical role in enabling manoeuvre advantage.
In lieu of Defence iQ’s Unmanned Ground Vehicles forum in January 2020, as part of our annual International Armoured Vehicles conference, we are pleased to publish this paper on UGVs in the future urban environment and the future of armoured manoeuvre.

Ahead of this year’s Armoured Vehicles Asia Conference, Defence IQ compiled a comprehensive report highlighting active ongoing programmes and key requirements in the Armoured Vehicle space in the region, as militaries invest in solutions and adapt to the modern battlefield against a wide array of threats and challenges. Rapid growth of the region’s market can be attributed to increasing indigenous R&D activities in order to develop advanced designs of hybrid armoured vehicles for missions such as enhanced border, maritime patrolling and ISR. The report offers insights into the activity of nations that will be present at the Armoured Vehicles Asia conference, such as:
