FUTURE FORCES 2014 together with the Ministry of Defence of the Czech Republic will host the official meeting of the NATO LCG DSS in Prague concurrently with the exhibition. Close cooperation between the Czech MoD and FUTURE FORCES in pursuance of hosting each sub-group session and the plenary gives our exhibitors the outstanding opportunity to meet the decision makers from leading NATO and cooperating countries all over the world in soldier modernisation programmes.

To assess the technological components and logistical requirements of a 21st century combatant and ‘NATO Forces 2020’, the Open NATO Future Soldier Workshop will evaluate the equipment needed by dismounted soldiers and small units to fight effectively, survive and win on the modern battlefield - not only as inter-operable weapons platforms, but as a networked intelligence sensor.
