Mechanised Forces Technology Asia — A conference and exhibition by Clarion Events

Clar­i­on Events hosts a mech­a­nised forces con­fer­ence and exhi­bi­tion to bring senior mil­i­tary and indus­try per­son­nel to cov­er force mech­a­ni­sa­tion in the region

Sin­ga­pore, Novem­ber 10 – The increas­ing trend of the mech­a­ni­sa­tion of armies in Asia is inline with the over­all mod­erni­sa­tion of armed forces. For mech­a­nised forces over $4.4bn was made avail­able in 2011; this is expect­ed to reach $5.4 bil­lion by 2021. This demon­strates that the increas­ing trend for the mech­a­ni­sa­tion of armies in Asia is a promi­nent issue.

A case in point is Malaysia. The Malaysian Min­istry of Defence is plan­ning to pur­chase 32 Anoa armoured vehi­cles from the Indone­sian defence indus­try, Indone­sian Defence Min­is­ter Purnomo Yus­giantoro has said. The Detik.com news por­tal quot­ed the min­is­ter as say­ing, “The sale of 32 armoured vehi­cles has been con­duct­ed. The con­tract had already been set.” Accord­ing to ear­li­er media reports, the Malaysian order was worth $80m. The Anoa armoured vehi­cle is fit­ted with 320hp 7,000cc engines man­u­fac­tured by Mer­cedes Benz and Renault. The Indone­sian vehi­cle is also used by UN peace­keep­ing forces that are deployed in sev­er­al con­flict areas.

There have been many devel­op­ments around the South­east Asian region that include Thai­land, Philip­pines and Sin­ga­pore towards the devel­op­ment of armoured fight­ing vehi­cles and infantry fight­ing vehi­cles to effec­tive­ly trans­port and sup­port troops to the bat­tle­field. Armour and infantry inte­gra­tion has tak­en a pri­ma­cy in the doc­tri­nal devel­op­ments of the armies in Asia because they see it as an essen­tial force mul­ti­pli­er for this type of oper­at­ing envi­ron­ment and ter­rain. They are agile, mobile and with the right kind of equip­ment and tech­nolo­gies can be very lethal.

With this in mind, the time is right for a con­fer­ence cov­er­ing the inte­gra­tion of armoured and infantry forces in the bat­tle­field. Clar­i­on Events is host­ing Mech­a­nised Forces Tech­nol­o­gy Asia con­fer­ence on 30– 31 Jan­u­ary 2012. The con­fer­ence brings togeth­er the armour and infantry com­mu­ni­ties in Asia, fea­tur­ing top army pre­sen­ters who will be address­ing the lat­est require­ments for Asian armies. It will cov­er the top­ic areas of armoured vehi­cles and armoured vehi­cle tech­nol­o­gy pro­cure­ment and use, the inte­gra­tion of infantry and armour to cre­ate a mech­a­nised force and force mul­ti­pli­ers to ensure that inte­gra­tion.

About Clar­i­on Events
Clar­i­on Events can trace its roots back to 1947. In more recent times the firm has grown sub­stan­tial­ly and rapid­ly into the largest inde­pen­dent event organ­is­er in the UK and sub­se­quent­ly become a tru­ly glob­al busi­ness.

Clar­i­on Events organ­is­es more than 200 events (a mix­ture of exhi­bi­tions, con­fer­ences and seat­ed events) annu­al­ly across the globe. More than 12,000 com­pa­nies trust us with their cus­tom each year and over 700,000 peo­ple give their valu­able time to vis­it our events. This suc­cess has come from iden­ti­fy­ing high-val­ue, niche audi­ences in dif­fi­cult-to-reach mar­kets and then build­ing them into mar­ket-lead­ing prod­ucts.

Clar­i­on Events spe­cialise in high-lev­el defence and secu­ri­ty events which are cre­at­ed with the input of a pan­el of senior lev­el gov­ern­ment, mil­i­tary and indus­try advi­sors. Exten­sive research and dia­logue with these con­tacts ensure our events reflect the most impor­tant issues fac­ing you and the wider defence and secu­ri­ty com­mu­ni­ty today. By mak­ing it our pri­ma­ry mis­sion to work close­ly with the Asian defence com­mu­ni­ty, includ­ing all senior stake­hold­ers and lead­ers we are able to cre­ate the most effec­tive pro­grammes for the Asian mar­ket. Our events pro­vide the ide­al venue for these high lev­el del­e­gates to meet, share ideas, dis­cuss indus­try devel­op­ments, con­duct busi­ness, devel­op part­ner­ships and net­work for future growth.
