DVD2018 Millbrook


DVD2018 is a key event for all those involved in UK Land Forces equipment and support. Jointly sponsored by Army Headquarters and the Defence Equipment & Support (Land Equipment) organisation - the section of the MOD responsible for equipping and supporting the UK's Armed Forces for current and future operations, it provides an effective and efficient forum for Army HQ staff, DE&S personnel and industry representatives involved in the Land Equipment sector to develop ideas and generate a greater understanding of technologies, capabilities and requirements.  DVD remains an important event enabling this coordinated engagement through informal discussion, briefings, demonstrations and displays. Other stakeholders from across the MOD are also welcome to attend to broaden perspectives and encourage innovation.

The aim of the DVD2018 is to showcase the equipment and technology that can support a British Army which is fit to meet future challenges and embraces the need for continuous adaptation. Those attending will be able to see a wide range of equipment on display from industry and the military, with more than 250 companies expected to exhibit at the event. Displays will range from specialist vehicles to all the equipment and services necessary to support land-based military operations.

AVT-249 Cooperative Demonstration of Technology on Munitions Related Contamination - Workshop on Military Life-Fire Range Characterization


The goal of NATO’s Cooperative Demonstration of Technology (CDT) program within the Science and Technology Organization (STO) Collaborative Support Office (CSO) is to engage potential end users in a demonstration of current and emerging technologies, to illustrate the benefits to decision-makers and end-users of that technology, and to promulgate these technologies throughout the NATO nations. 

For this CDT, the subject will be a demonstration of all aspects of technologies necessary to execute a successful, defensible characterization of a military training range for munitions constituents.

The following objectives are to be addressed:

  • Classroom instruction on issues and errors in characterization of military training ranges; data quality objectives - criteria for representative samples; theory of sampling - science behind collection of representative samples; quality control - what needs to be performed and how to interpret the data for decision-making and sampling in the laboratory - representative test portion for analysis 
  • Demonstration of field sampling tools and equipment; methods to set-up decision units and sample collection methods
  • Case studies and practical application of study materials

Ordnance, Munitions and Explosives Symposium


Cranfield University is hosting the 2018 Ordnance, Munitions and Explosives (OME) Symposium, on behalf of the Sector Skills Strategy Group (SSSG) of the explosives industry.The theme of this year’s symposium is Manufacture, Support and Disposal. With an increasing trend towards leaner, just in time manufacturing, stock reduction, and efficient turnaround of inventory, the 2018 OME Symposium will explore how suppliers are meeting their customers’ needs, and how customers monitor their stock in accordance with supplier’s recommendations.

The 2018 OME Symposium will explore how suppliers meet their customer’s and end user needs, how the stock is monitored through life to ensure it remains fit for purpose. The 2018 OME Symposium will delve into all parts of the OME life cycle through to timely disposal.
