Military engineers are faced by future scenarios that will require sustaining forces in regions of little or no infrastructure. This means mobility, this means electricity, this means water and this means that over 10 nations will be attending Defence IQ’s Military Engineering conference looking for solutions to overcome these challenges.
Military Engineering 2012 focuses on the future role of the military engineer. The clear focus is on sustaining expeditionary infrastructure; providing essential services at the tactical edge with limited natural resources in areas of little or no infrastructure.
The conference represents an excellent opportunity for military engineers to meet international colleagues as nations embark on the challenge of how to field expeditionary forces in the future. Solar power, smart-grids, energy-efficient generators, water drilling rigs, purification, bottling solutions and the next generation of bridge-laying and mobility vehicles that will facilitate the mission.
