20 June 22. DVD2022 to demonstrate a new Decade of Delivery. As visitor and media registration opens for DVD2022, Army Headquarters and DE&S announce the themes for this year’s event. On 21st and 22nd September at UTAC Millbrook, industry and Defence in the Land Equipment sector will meet to discuss Future Soldier and the Land Industrial Strategy (LIS), bringing ‘A Decade of Delivery: Transformation and Sustainment’ to life through themed areas, presentations, and a ‘Boxer Village’.
DVD is a biennial Defence industry exhibition that enables focussed engagement between Defence industry, DE&S Delivery Teams, Army HQ staff and other Defence community users of Land Equipment.
The primary objective of DVD2022 is engagement and communications with industry and key MOD stakeholders to realise the following benefits:
- MOD. Develop a greater understanding of the land equipment sector across MOD stakeholders; and to promote UK Defence industry and innovation.
- Army HQ. DVD provides an opportunity to develop intelligent customer knowledge and market awareness to inform capability planning, requirements setting and equipment management. And explain land equipment requirements and activity to industry and key MOD decision makers.
- DE&S. An opportunity to engage with industry, alongside Army HQ and HQ Field Army staff as the customer and user; and to develop a common understanding of the industrial base and review technology. As well as developing DE&S staff knowledge, skills and experience.
- Industry. Gain a better understanding of MOD needs through direct engagement with Army HQ staff, with the expertise of DE&S staff available to advise on procurement and support issues. DVD also provides an opportunity for industry-to-industry engagement.
Deputy Chief of the General Staff, Lieutenant General Sir Christopher Tickell KBE explains: “I’m pleased to see the return of DVD, following the 2020 hiatus. The land equipment sector has inevitably changed since our last event in 2018 and DVD2022 presents us with an exciting opportunity to take stock of the past and look ahead to a new ‘Decade of Delivery: Transformation and Sustainment’.
“Transformation – to Future Soldier – and Sustainment – though the Land Industrial Strategy – remain paramount to maintaining world class capabilities across the spectrum of Land Equipment, reflected in our current procurement and upgrade programmes and in our future capability 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.

The leading trade show for sustainability, new technologies and innovation is a meeting place for the international industry, policymakers, armed forces and science. Under the headings of Aviation, Space, Defence & Security and Suppliers, ILA Berlin covers the entire value chain of the aerospace industry. Topics include climate-neutral aviation, new mobility and space security. The live events taking place on five stages are augmented by a wide-ranging programme on the new platform ILA Digital.
High-profile political figures at the show: Federal Chancellor Scholz opens ILA
With aerospace currently playing such an important political and strategic role, high-profile political figures have agreed to attend. Federal Chancellor Olaf Scholz will officially open ILA Berlin 2022. During the opening tour (Wednesday, 22 June 2022, 12.30 – 2.30 p.m.) he will gain an overview of innovations and the latest technologies from national and international exhibitors. Accompanying the federal chancellor will be Minister President of Brandenburg Dietmar Woidke, Governing Mayor of Berlin Franziska Giffey and Federal Minister for Digital and Transport Dr. Volker Wissing.

The European Commission is the strategic partner of ILA Berlin. Under the slogan ’Airborne in Europe’, the European Commission and ILA Berlin have made it their goal to strengthen Europe’s technological leadership and pave the way for a sustainable future in aerospace.
Sustainability, innovation and new technologies the dominant themes at ILA Berlin
Aviation, Space, Defence and Support, Advanced Air Mobility and Suppliers – under these headings five STAGES will focus on the latest aerospace topics over the next few days. This year, the spotlight is on sustainability and climate-neutral aviation.
Volker Thum, chief executive of the German Aerospace Industries Association (BDLI): ”Climate-neutral aviation, security and space flight are the big topics. There is an incredible amount of activity in these high-tech sectors, which provide an invaluable contribution to making our lives modern, sustainable and secure. Security is necessary for comprehensive sustainability and the basis for peace, wealth and democracy. Conversely, sustainability and climate protection also help to prevent conflicts. This demonstrates the pioneering spirit of ILA and our industry. I am delighted that this week the entire spectrum and future of our high-tech industry will be on show.”
Martin Ecknig, CEO of Messe Berlin: ”Climate-neutral aviation, military security and satellite programmes that enable the digital transformation of our economy – the ILA programme is as topical as ever. As Europe’s leading innovative trade show for the aerospace industry, ILA focuses on sustainability, new technologies and innovation. It gathers figures from politics, industry and science and offers them a platform for exchanging views on the pressing issues of our times. In addition, exhibitors from around the world are presenting the future of aerospace.”
Exhibitors from around the world present high-tech solutions
Around 550 exhibitors from 29 countries are presenting their innovations on an area covering 150,000 square metres. Visitors to ILA can witness some 60 aircraft close up. These include an A380 Airbus, the world’s largest passenger aircraft, a Beluga XL and A400M, both transporters, as well as an A330. On day two of the show (23 June 2002, 11.00 – 11.45 a.m.), Lufthansa Technik will hand over the first Airbus A321neoLR to the Bundeswehr (separate accreditation required).
Among other aircraft, Boeing is displaying a CH-47 Chinook transport helicopter, and Lockheed Martin is showing an F-35 multi-role stealth combat aircraft. Deutsche Aircraft is presenting its Dornier 328. This serves as the basis for developing the DO328eco, which in the future is targeting a 95 per cent reduction in CO2 emissions compared with fossil fuels. Volocopter is displaying a full-scale model of the VoloCity Air Taxi – an electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft (VTOL) for urban transport.
In addition to the exhibits on the Static Display there will also be aircraft in the skies. Individual flight demonstrations coordinated with the flight operations of neighbouring BER Airport will see a Eurofighter, Tornado and CH-47 Chinook being flown. On the open days for the public the programme will include a fly-past by an A330 MRTT, two Tornados and two Eurofighters.
ILA Space Pavilion: meeting place of the global space flight community
