26th – 28th March 2018
The Hurlingham Club, London

Representatives from NATO, U.S. Army, BAE Systems and more join to discuss LVC Training

Developing common interfaces, integrating LVC in mixed inventories of new and legacy platforms, and introducing high-fidelity simulation are pressing challenges for modern air forces, as they strive to retain operational readiness for high intensity conflict against near-peer competitors.

Defence IQ have compiled insights on this critical topic, from both military and industry experts, to hear their opinions on the challenges and future opportunities of implementing LVC training to prepare aircrew for the full spectrum of air defence operations.

Within the piece you can gain insights from the following experts:
  • Air Marshal (Ret) Sir Christopher Harper, Former Deputy Chairman NATO Military Committee, NATO
  • Dr. Richard J. Joseph, Chief Scientist, US Air Force
  • Dr. Julia Sutcliffe, Chief Technology Officer, BAE Systems
  • Tom Jones, Sector Vice President and General Manager Air C4ISR Systems, Northrop Grumman
  • Brian Hamilton, Group Product Manager, Enterprise, Improbable


This discussion offers a deep-dive into understanding how LVC interoperability will be delivered and the challenges within this, at a time point of crossroads for the military flight training market. Some of the insights from these experts include: 


"One of the things we are looking for and we’re very keen to take part in is probably a rainbow team approach with a customer community, with industry and academia to understand the overall vision and what we are trying to achieve in terms of infrastructure, multi-security environments and what our ultimate aim is" Dr Julia Sutcliffe, BAE Systems

“Within the airborne LVC domain, one of the big limitations is the inability to see the synthetic and virtual targets” Tom Jones, Northrop Grumman 


At the 18th annual Military Flight Training conference we will be welcoming over 250 military and industry attendees from over 40 nations to discuss challenges and risk factors such as these. This forum, held on the 26-28 March in London, will be hosting critical discussions and networking to overcome these barriers to ensure operational readiness of aircrew for current and future operating environments.
