Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LONDON, England - Nov 30, 2016 - Following on from the success of last week’s Future Armoured Vehicles Survivability show, SMi will once again gather an audience of international military and leading solution providers to delve further into key topics surrounding combat vehicle C4I and connectivity at Future Armoured Vehicles Situational Awareness 2017, an event purely dedicated to providing critical updates on platform C4ISTAR and C2.
