Maintaining Advantage in Dynamic Tactical Environments

At seven years, the Future Mortar Systems conference is longest running strategic forum about mortar systems and the role of indirect firepower in contemporary and future tactical environments.

The role of infantry and artillery in contemporary operations is continuously under reassessment as land forces look to prepare for both near-peer and low-tech adversaries whose tactics are increasingly hybrid. Transformations in concepts of operations will have a significant impact on land forces and the employment of indirect firepower and this, in turn, is shaping and reshaping the contemporary mortar system and its desired effects in the battlespace. The 2017 Future Mortar Systems conference allows warfighters a unique opportunity to share their perspectives on what a robust indirect fire capability could or should look like to achieve success in future conflicts.

Beyond operational and strategic discussions, the 2017 FMS event will identify both persistent and emerging challenges and priorities that are shaping the contemporary thinking of infantry, artillery and marine corps. Key areas for discussion will include training and safety, noise and weight reduction, munitions standardization, target acquisition, digitized fire support and mobility.
