Future Armoured Vehicles to Explore Communication and Systems Updates on Key Platforms

SMi Reports: The 6th annual Future Armoured Vehicles Central and Eastern Europe Conference will discuss updates on platforms such as ASCOD, BOXER, CV90 and more.

On 18th and 19th of May 2020, the Future Armoured Vehicles Central and Eastern Europe conference will convene in Prague to explore what nations across Central and Eastern Europe are doing to enhance and overhaul their fleets of armoured vehicles.

As a crucial modernisation goal for many nations in the region, the conference will provide a critical insight into what capabilities are being pursued by regional armed forces, reinforcing interoperability and cooperation.

In addition to this, the event will provide an unparalleled opportunity to meet and network with key programme managers, capability directors and operational commanders from the armed forces.

For interested parties, an early bird discount of £200 for bookings made by 28th February is available online at http://www.futurearmouredvehicles.com/RoboticsTomorrowPR2

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

The industry's first comprehensive Robot Integrator Program saves robot integrators significant time and cost investments by allowing them to mark each cell compliant with ANSI/RIA R15.06 with the TUV Rheinland Mark. As opposed to a traditional certification or an on-site field labeling, TÜV Rheinland's Robot Integrator Program certifies the knowledge and skill-set of robot integrators in addition to testing robotic cells and processes against ANSI/RIA R15.06. This reduces the need for frequent onsite or off site testing and allows manufacturers to apply a single TÜV Rheinland label to multiple cells. The Robot Integrator Program individually assesses a robot integrator's understanding of the ANSI/RIA R15.06 standard along with the ability to consistently produce compliant robot cells. Following the requirements and procedures of the new program will enable robot integrators to produce individually compliant robotic cells under one serialized TÜV Rheinland Mark, which meets the national electric code and allows acceptance by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) and end users.
