Soldier Equipment Technology Advancement Forum 2016

“No attendees, only participants” - SMi Group

Through focused networking and discussion of the assets that can increase mission effectiveness, SETAF 2016 shall bring together key stake holders from across the community, to help the soldier of today and tomorrow advance.

Drawing on a wealth of experience and technical expertise, this discussion led forum will cover the key areas of the Soldier Modernisation Programme that directly influence the operational effectiveness of the dismounted soldier:

  • Power
  • Communications
  • Lethality
  • Survivability
  • Mobility
  • Human Factors

Only by sharing ideas through the medium of networking can we develop and enhance our approach and solutions to military programmes. Join us on conference day to benefit from this unique forum. Register online at


  • The only discussion based forum for the soldier community helping advance dismounted capabilities through knowledge exchange and debate, not Power Point presentations or lengthy key note speeches
