The MOD Special Projects Defence Equipment & Support (DE&S) and Strategic Command (UKStratCom) Industry Day provides a key opportunity for the Capability Sponsor, Delivery Agency and industry partners to connect, gain clearer understanding of the current capability programme, and discuss and help inform future requirements.
This presents an excellent opportunity for deeper engagement and networking with fellow experts in the field.
Open to participants from 5 EYES, NATO Countries and NATO Global Partners, the UK attendee will require minimum BPSS security clearance and for International Visitors, a foreign visit request to be submitted. Please see Entry Requirements for further information.
This year, the Applicant entry criteria minimum level of clearance of Baseline Personnel Security Standard (BPSS) aims to allow first-time entrants to the defence and security industry to attend the event, along with seasoned industry professionals.
UK Strategic Command Capability Special Projects (Cap SP) provides the capability sponsorship and development required to meet the demands of Special Users as well as Defence-wide CBRN and ECM. This is achieved by conducting near and long-term capability planning with a focus on innovation and emerging technologies.
The DE&S Special Projects Programme Delivery Group is responsible for the procurement and in-service support of a range of equipment capabilities identified by Cap SP for use primarily by Specialist Users.
Industry Day Programme
Industry Day takes place from 0800 - 1600 on 1 November 2023.
This year we have an exciting announcement relating to an innovation opportunity with the United States.
The programme will include a morning of presentations from UKStratCom and an afternoon of presentations from DE&S which will be held at Official Sensitive (OS). This will allow delegates to take notes.
To allow for the announcements and presentations, there will not be 1:1 sessions during the MOD SP Industry Day this year, however 1:1 sessions can be booked with team leaders from UKStratCom and DE&S during the exhibition the following day.
These will be held at unclassified, however more private discussions may take place off the show floor in dedicated meeting rooms. Delegates also have the option to thereafter arrange for follow up meetings at their own premises, or at MOD premises.
During the morning, lunchtime and afternoon breaks, delegates will be able to freely network with further members of DE&S and UKStratCom at Official Sensitive.
Refreshments and a buffet lunch will be provided.
