LONDON, October 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Next week, leading global military and industry decision makers will convene at Future Mortar Systems to discuss the sector's hottest topics, including the prevention of skill atrophy, the cost of live fire training and the future of precision munitions.

As the defence industry prepares to transition in to a post-Afghanistan environment, the questions and challenges surrounding the oldest battlefield technology have come to the forefront of land forces' concerns. In particular, the future vision for the use of mortars in theatre and the debate surrounding Insensitive Munitions.

Future Mortar Systems (21-23 October 2013, London) is perfectly placed to address all of these issues and go some way into providing solutions through a networking focused forum. Further information on these session topics, and the full speaker line-up, can be found in the Future Mortar Systems conference brochure, available online at

Additionally, in order to provide a deeper insight and understanding into mortars systems, leading defence consultant, Jim Storr, will be presenting a pre-conference workshop on examining the role of the mortar. This interactive session will offer attendees the opportunity to participate in an in-depth, yet informal, discussion about the role of the mortar, both current and future. Find out more at
