18th - 19th September, 2024
UTAC Millbrook, Bedfordshire

DVD2024 have opened an opportunity for industry experts to book speaker sessions to encourage debate on the challenges our armed forces face and consider innovative solutions for implementation across a number of key areas.

The MOD invites you to challenge its preconceptions by discussing alternative solutions and clearly evidencing how the solution could be delivered to support training, force preparation and/or deployed in a mobile operational environment. 

We are asking for Expressions of Interest to deliver short presentations on the theme outlined below:

Delivering the most modern and lethal Army in Europe together

  • Resilience and Collaboration are fundamental aspects of deterrents in a more dangerous world. Through the Land Industrial Strategy, the Army and DE&S will seek to outpace our adversaries by forming military partnerships built around shared capabilities, generating investment into UK industry; and ensuring the Army is ready to fight and win.
  • ‘Battle Winning Ideas’ make our land forces more adaptable, more agile, and more lethal. By learning from current conflicts Defence can adapt at pace to do more with what we have now and ensure we optimise our procurement priorities to face the threats of the future.
  • Delivering Increased Capability faster through the implementation of the Integrated Procurement Model means the Army, with support from a newly optimised DE&S, can accelerate its Future Soldier programme – making it the most lethal army in Europe. This new approach allows the British Army, in partnership with DE&S, to rapidly increase capability for tomorrow by delivering a minimum deployable solution which will benefit from spiral development and integrate across the battlespace by default.
  • Our ability to exploit innovation to develop and integrate novel technologies at all stages of the procurement process will ensure the Army is more resilient and can adapt at pace to face threats of today and tomorrow. Through DE&S and Dstl investment in science and technology can develop next generation capabilities to meet the requirements of a modern, lethal Army
