“Mil­i­tary Engi­neer­ing 2010” – New con­cepts boost the safe­ty of sol­diers in action

Mil­i­tary engage­ment like the cam­paigns in Iraq and Afghanistan boost and demand the abil­i­ty of our forces to inno­vate. In this con­nec­tion engi­neers play a deci­sive role. From the devel­op­ment of “UAV — Unmanned Aer­i­al Vehi­cles” right up to “C‑IED – Counter-Impro­vised Explo­sive Devices” there are tech­nolo­gies devel­oped to make the cam­paigns of our forces more effec­tive and more safe. Engi­neers in par­tic­u­lar in the field of mil­i­tary are con­front­ed with a con­stant­ly chang­ing area of respon­si­bil­i­ty and chal­lenges.

With­in the scope of our media part­ner­ship with Clar­i­on Events, GlobalDefence.net attend­ed the con­fer­ence “Mil­i­tary Engi­neer­ing 2010” in Munich.

Focus of this con­fer­ence was on the new­ly devel­oped tech­nolo­gies and strate­gies for the high­est pos­si­ble pro­tec­tion for the engi­neer­ing troops and of course for the com­bat troops. In this way the con­fer­ence was a not only plat­form for com­pa­nies to present and pro­mote their lat­est prod­ucts, but also the chance for the mil­i­tary to refer about prac­tice-relat­ed prob­lems or dis­crep­an­cies con­cern­ing the per­for­mance of mate­r­i­al or struc­tures.

A big talk­ing point in the the­ater of oper­a­tions for the armed forces is the impro­vised explo­sive devices “IED”. The “Mil­i­tary Engi­neer­ing 2010” showed the var­i­ous pos­si­bil­i­ties of the mil­i­tary to face this threat in the form of “C‑IED”. Com­pa­nies like Rhein­metall Defence, NIITEK or Cater­pil­lar pre­sent­ed their lat­est prod­ucts, for exam­ple the AEV 3 Kodi­ak.

In the scope of the issue “C‑IED – Counter-Impro­vised Explo­sive Devices” GlobalDefence.net will report in detail about the devel­op­ments and var­i­ous weapon sys­tems.
