New topics are represented, for example, by modelling and simulation, biometrics, or protection of soft targets.


New events for experts, two scientific conferences

Two new events will take place under the aegis of the FFF – a NATO workshop on the use of exoskeletons in combat missions and a NATO workshop dealing with the development of concepts and experiments in military medicine; there will also be a NATO conference on the modelling and simulation of autonomous systems, and a scientific modelling and simulation workshop.
