Combat Helicopter is Europe's Largest Dedicated Military Helicopter Event
The 4th edition of Combat Helicopter, chaired by Air Marshal Greg Bagwell CB CBE, Former Deputy Commander of Operations, Royal Air Force, will provide the tri-services community with the unique opportunity to gain a clear understanding of future requirements and capabilities for next generation, multi-role rotary platforms.
Plus for the first time this year US Army Europe will be hosting their Rotary Wing Summit to plan training and develop tactical interoperability.
Europe’s largest dedicated military helicopter event will bring together over 250 delegates from 22 NATO+ friendly members and partners to discuss, plan and solve current and future operational requirements within the following areas:
Own the Environment and conduct 24/7 all-weather operations. Turn hazards into tactical advantages by increasing DVE Awareness, Maximising Night Vision Capabilities, dominate and exploit the electromagnetic spectrum and Integrating Targeting Solutions.
Enable air assault and logistics support within all environments. Analyse programmes, innovations and technology for medium and heavy-lift helicopters to conduct troop transport and resupply whilst ensuring appropriate defence.
Force Protection from the Sea. Adapt Platforms for Littoral Operations, Release for Deck Operations and Maximise Operational Availability as the helicopter plays an increasingly key role in increasing the organic protective envelope of the Fleet.
Minimise the risk of future operations by identifying systems that can detect and deter enemy action and incoming fire whilst enabling clear identification of blue forces. Platform Design, Maximising Multi-Role Capabilities, Firepower, Avionics will all be covered by an array of experts from different nations.
Fleet Integration is the key to enabling synergy during international operations. Deliver maximum value from national programmes by enabling Multi-Role Capabilities, Maximising Air Communications and discover the Future of Combat Helicopters.
