On 21st and 22nd September 2022, industry and Defence in the Land Equipment sector will meet at UTAC Millbrook for the biennial Defence industry exhibition, DVD2022. This year’s focus ‘Mobilise and Modernise – A Decade of Delivery’ will see the themes brought to life through presentations, demonstrations and a ‘Boxer Village’
Boxer, the state-of-the-art wheeled armoured vehicle, designed to allow role-specific Mission Module configuration, will be displayed with a variety of Modules. The off-road exhibition will enable visitors to see kit, meet the people behind it, and find out more about future innovations available for UK Boxer.
Defence industry, DE&S Delivery Teams, Army HQ staff and other Defence community users of Land Equipment will have an opportunity to learn more about how collaboration on Boxer’s Strategic Pipeline project is influencing the ongoing Mechanised Infantry Vehicle (MIV) programme.
The DVD2022 theme aims to ‘Mobilise the Army’ to meet the threat in Europe and meet the NATO Model 24 by increasing readiness and competitiveness of the Army today and accelerating delivery of Future Soldier. ‘Modernising through a Decade of Delivery’ will see the implementation of major equipment programmes, streamlining support and collective training, the exploitation of future technology and it will light the forges of industry through the Land Industrial Strategy (LIS).
Lt Col Hugh O’Neil Roe, who is helping to deliver the programme on behalf of DE&S, said:
“The aim of DVD2022 is for the Army and DE&S to explain known capability requirements and future intent, to influence industry research and development and for industry to demonstrate current products and explain their development plans”
“We’re looking forward to seeing a number of platforms within our ‘Boxer Village’ and to demonstrating how the team is working together to bring Boxer into UK service, whilst keeping an eye to meeting emerging requirements.”
For those involved in Land Equipment for Army Headquarters, DE&S and Front-Line Commands DVD2022 provides an ideal opportunity to identify innovation, develop ideas and generate a greater understanding of technologies, capabilities and requirements.
