11:00: CV90 Mjölner: Delivering the Hammer of Thor
Presenters:
Dan Lindell, CV90 Platform Director, BAE Systems Hägglunds
Joakim Kylstad, CV90 Specialist, Swedish Army
Location: The Cube, BAE Systems stand, S4-200
 
Meet ‘the Hammer of Thor’ – the CV90 Mjölner Mortar System is the latest addition to the CV90 family. BAE Systems Hägglunds’ $68 million Mjölner programme to deliver 40 vehicle-mounted mortar systems for the Swedish Army’s CV90s started in December 2016. With four pre-series vehicles delivered to the Swedish FMV (Defence Materiel Administration) in February 2019 for training and validation, the first operational vehicles will be handed over to the Swedish Army in September with remaining deliveries to complete during 2020. Hear from BAE Systems Hägglunds’ about the latest developments for CV90, the advantages this newest variant will bring users, and how the Mjölner programme continues to prove successful, meeting multiple milestones in a demanding schedule.
 
13:00: ARCHER Mobile Howitzer – powerful precision, versatile mobility
Presenter: Ulf Einefors, Sales & Marketing Director, BAE Systems Weapon Systems Sweden
Location: ARCHER, BAE Systems stand, S4-200
 
Making its international debut at this year’s show, the ARCHER Mobile Howitzer is the ultimate in shoot-and-scoot artillery systems. A highly modular concept that can be integrated onto many carriers, the powerful and flexible artillery system is designed to meet the demands of international markets by allowing each country to use the local platform of its choice. The ARCHER system displayed at DSEI is mounted on a Rheinmetall RMMV HX2 8x8 truck – meaning it could be common to systems already in service with the British Army. Join BAE Systems Weapon Systems Sweden for a tour of the most advanced flexible wheeled 155mm, 52-calibre system in operation today.
 
14:00: Unleashing Typhoon’s full potential
Presenter: Paul Smith, Typhoon Operational Requirements Manager, BAE Systems Air
Location: BAE Systems stand, S4-200
 
Typhoon is the most advanced multi-role combat aircraft on the market; it's delivering today and is designed to meet the challenges of tomorrow. Having delivered enhanced weapons capability as part of Project Centurion, BAE Systems is now looking at the next step in Typhoon's capability evolution. This will include investments in radar, communications, data management and connectivity which will ensure Typhoon is future-proofed well in to the 2060s. Through its evolution, Typhoon will be at the heart of developing and deploying technologies which will become part of a future combat air system, making it the perfect interoperable partner for Future Combat Air Systems.
 
Wednesday 11 September
 
ASV P950 Autonomous Rib
 
11:00: BAE Systems technology overview
Presenter: Dave Short, Technology Director, BAE Systems plc
Location: The Cube, BAE Systems stand, S4-200
 
In this session dedicated to the latest technological advancements from BAE Systems you will have the opportunity to see first-hand some of the new technologies the Company’s engineers and technologists are working on.
 
11:25: Augmented Reality glasses briefing and demonstration
Presenter: Chris Colston, Director of Strategic Growth, Electronic Systems
Location: The Cube, BAE Systems stand, S4-200
 
BAE Systems will unveil the prototype of its augmented reality (AR) glasses (currently in a headset form). The final product is intended to be one of the highest performing and brightest AR glasses systems on the market, and the latest iteration of the technology will be available to demo on the BAE Systems stand.
 
11:45: Future cockpit briefing and demonstration
Presenter: Jean Page, Technologist & Head of Discipline Human Factors, BAE Systems Air
Location: BAE Systems stand, S4-200
 
BAE Systems is developing cockpit technologies for the future fighter-jet pilot, which will be available to experience in a cockpit demonstrator. Virtual and augmented reality and gesture control are some of the novel controls being trialled to meet the demands of a future complex battlespace.
 
14:00: Integrating autonomy into naval capability
Presenters:
Mike Woods, Chief Technologist, BAE Systems Maritime Services,
Robin Abbot, Programme Manager Autonomy Systems, Combat Systems, BAE Systems Naval Ships
Cdr Sean Trevethan, Navy X Programme Manager, Royal Navy
Location: Naval Zone, Royal Docks (Gazebo beside HMS Argyll)
 
The Pacific 24 Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB) from BAE Systems, that extends human capability by navigating the seas autonomously, will be launched from a Type 23 Royal Navy warship docked outside ExCeL before carrying out high-speed exercises that mimic real world scenarios including force protection, threat intercept and chase missions with other manned and unmanned surface vessels.
 
15:00: BvS10: Driving the Digital Information Advantage
Presenter: Darren Restarick, BvS10 Regional Director, BAE Systems Hägglunds
Location: BvS10, BAE Systems stand, S4-200
 
BAE Systems has adopted the Generic Vehicle Architecture (GVA) standard used by the UK Ministry of Defence and NATO allies to streamline information and increase situational awareness for crews operating BvS10 all-terrain support vehicles. Standardising multiple user interfaces to create an integrated system-of-systems in the BvS10 will shorten crew training times, make it easier for personnel to change duties and vehicles, and ultimately increase combat efficiency. GVA’s open architecture design allows for rapid technology refresh upgrades to ensure the most advanced capabilities quickly get to the battlefield. BAE Systems will show how a single information environment can protect crews from information overload and encourage them to work better together.
 
Thursday 12 September
 
FORTH OPV arrives in Scotstoun
 
10:00:  Light attack aircraft capabilities
Presenter: Dave Harrold, Business Development Director, BAE Systems Electronic Systems
Location: The Cube, BAE Systems stand, S4-200
 
Today’s militaries are turning to light-attack aircraft to conduct a variety of missions at a lower cost than traditional close air support platforms. While these aircraft differ in capability, they must conduct similar missions and face similar threats. This briefing will highlight BAE Systems’ range of situational awareness technology, survivability equipment, and precision munitions for light-attack platforms to make them efficient military assets.
 
13:30: Introducing Shared Infrastructure across the fleet
Presenters:
Steve Hart, Head of Business Development, BAE Systems Naval Ships
Finbar O’Keefe, Future Technologies Programme Lead, BAE Systems Naval Ships – Combat Systems
Supported by Royal Navy representative
Location: HMS Medway, Naval Zone, Royal Docks
 
Shared Infrastructure (SI) is an innovative product that enables the operation of the ship’s combat systems through a single console and allows the Royal Navy to deploy new, third party capabilities that exploit published information while minimising the costs.
 
SI is an Open Architecture System currently being fitted to Royal Navy warships, including Offshore Patrol Vessels and the Queen Elizabeth Class carriers, with Type 26 to come, providing a host environment and common services to enable agile, affordable and safe development of the Combat System.
Hear from thought-leaders and leading technologists from BAE Systems and UK Royal Navy giving insights into Shared Infrastructure across the UK Royal Navy fleet, followed by a tour of HMS MEDWAY.
