Explore the future of organic fire support in the brave new world of the post-Afghanistan era

Afghanistan has dominated our thinking for the past decade. However, with the drawdown and defence budgets shrinking, the question on everyone’s lips is – what comes next? Debate rages over how to preventing skill atrophy, the cost of live-fire training and the future of precision munitions.

As we prepare to enter this brave new world, Defence IQ is delighted to bring together mortar officers, commanders and developers from around the globe to address the challenges facing one of our oldest and most trusted battlefield weapons.

Future Mortar Systems 2013 brings together our most diverse international speaker faculty to engage in pro-active dialogue on a range of issues set to define mortar systems in the coming years.
