High Mobility, Enhanced Lethality: Maintaining Rapid Tactical Advantage

Future Mortar Systems is the world's longest running conference devoted to the study of mortar technology, tactics, techniques and procedures.

This year’s event is all about empowering the dispersed combat unit for tomorrow’s fight. As our enemies become more technologically proficient and able to deny us our freedom of manoeuvre, small, highly dispersed tactical forces will become a valuable means of projecting combat power. This concept of future land warfare has significant implications for the development, acquisition and employment of mortar systems and the TTPs of small combat units, which will need to be empowered with capabilities that enhance their survivability, mobility and lethality in more hostile and ambiguous warfighting contexts. It is with this in mind that we are hosting this year’s Future Mortars conference, which will address the investment needed to sustain, modernise or innovate tactical weapon systems to maintain tactical dominance.
