Over 200 exhibitors will present their products and services. The latest simulation and training technologies, aerial and ground equipment, unmanned and autonomous systems, small arms and heavy weapons, personal protective equipment and tactical gear, communications equipment, cyber security solutions, special forces equipment and much more will be presented. The Czech Armed forces, Police, Fire and Rescue Service and Prison Service will also present the latest weapons, equipment and gear.
The interactive programme will include presentations and live demonstrations, UTM shooting range and a Live Hacking Zone.
The expert panels, conferences and workshops will focus on cyber defence and security, critical infrastructure protection, homeland security and resilience, use of artificial intelligence, communications and command and control systems (C5ISTAR), disruptive technologies and innovations, pilot training, land forces development, air force development, military and crisis medicine, CBRN, and modelling and simulations for autonomous systems.
NATO WORKING GROUPS
The FFF programme also includes official sessions of NATO Working Groups, whose members actively participate in the exhibition and expert panels. The focus of the working groups corresponds to the FFF topics. In particular, they cover the areas of dismounted soldier systems, military medicine, CBRN and non-lethal weapons.
