AUSA 2010 Preview

    762

    Defense Update is reviewing the upcoming Association of the U.S. Army Annual Meeting & Exhibition with extensive coverage focusing on the wide scope of land warfare.

    In particular, the areas we have traditionally covered, included armored vehicles, survivability and  protection; this time we plan to expand this theme with a wider scope, addressing threats and defensive techniques against blast, mine protection, as well as fire, CBRN and hazardous materials – resulting from the potential risks of fighting insurgency in modern, urban warfare. New active protection and ‘soft kill’ solutions will also be covered. In addition to the discussion of personal protection, we’ll review dismounted applications, including C4ISR, load carrying, personal gear, weapons, robotics and accessories.

    Non lethal weapons will be discussed, as well as the various aspects of kinetic effects. Our coverage will address new trends of precision guided weapons, particularly the downsizing of missiles and rockets and grenades, enabling the use of highly effective, specialized weapons by the lowest echelon tactical forces – mounted and dismounted.

    Technologies combating IEDs will be discussed in various aspects, from road clearing devices and jammers mounted on vehicles to the latest capabilities employed against IED support networks.

    Another field of interest is robotics and unmanned systems – both micro and mini platforms, EOD and aerial systems will be presented, as well as the upcoming cargo carriers, manned and unmanned.

    Army aviation issues will be discussed with focus on helicopters, aerial ISR, aerostats and airships, manned-unmanned teaming and cargo UAVs. Air defense will also be included, with the aspects ranging from cruise and ballistic missile defense to C-RAM.

    We also plan to focus on the new field of area persistence, which includes the means for gathering intelligence and manipulating data into actionable, targeting intelligence – remote sensors, radars, UGS, seismic, acoustic and IR and new, promising technologies pursued by DARPA.
