Develop military engineering capabilities for crisis management at the tactical edge

In the previous years, military engineers were armed with heavy vehicles and tasked with maintaining readiness for high intensity warfare. The priorities for the military engineering community are beginning to change, recognising the requirements of advancing rapid reaction capabilities and incorporating sustainable energy solutions to engage in contingecy operations and deploy personnel abroad.

Military Engineering 2018 will cater for the critical requirements of combat and construction engineers by identifying innovative, cost-efficient solutions to modernise operational capabilities, augment mobility, and maximise readiness of military engineers to engage in crisis management, natural disaster relief, humanitarian operations, and continency missions in remote locations and austere environments. In addition to traditional concerns regarding mobility, manoeuvre, and installation of military facilities, engineers are facing the need to comply with environmental regulations by greening defence. Recognising the emerging technical requirements in the fields of combat support and construction of temporary facilities, the conference will enable attendees to modernise their capabilities to go in line with modern operating conditions.
