24 Aug 10. Joint Munition Effect Conference, Prague, Czech Republic, 29-30 September 2010. Munition solutions across the multi-national and multi service environment. Today’s militaries often find themselves working closely together in a Joint Operational Environment. When they do, a host of compatibility issues arise that would not necessarily be the case if one nation fought alone. Recognising this in a multi-national and multi service environment is becoming critically important as operations in Afghanistan have clearly demonstrated.
A key aspect of this is the interoperability of munitions.
* How do we look after and deploy our munitions in this increasingly complex environment and how should they be supported?
* How do we look after guided munitions and how well are insensitive munitions being integrated?
* What issues are there in the standardisation of ammunition in NATO and non-NATO countries?
* What is the latest operational feedback from current theatres?
Joint Munition Effects 2010 will be your opportunity this year to meet munition specialists and operational commanders from across all environments. Listen, learn and network with leaders in munitions management and support in order to enhance multi-national capabilities.

23 Aug 10. The ILA 2012 will take place from 19 to 24 June 2012, one week later than originally planned. This decision was taken at the last session of the board of directors of the German Aerospace Industries Association (BDLI). Following the recent announcement of the 2012 dates of Eurosatory in Paris it became necessary to reschedule the ILA to avoid a collision of events over the same period. The new dates are particularly good news for companies from the defence industry, as well as for the many trade visitors and delegations representing this sector. In 2012 the ILA will take place on the new exhibition grounds at Berlin-Schönefeld for the first time. Exhibitor numbers at this year’s ILA were the highest in the event’s 100-year history, with 1,153 exhibitors from 47 countries providing an impressive display of products and services from all parts of the aerospace industry. Attendance at the fair was around 235,000, of whom 125,000 were trade visitors.
