SKYDEX, a global leader in advanced impact mitigation and energy absorption solutions, today announced that the company will serve as a sponsor at the International Armoured Vehicles (IAVs) 2021 virtual conference and will participate in the show for the sixth year in a row. SKYDEX will also showcase its next generation, life-saving solutions for blast mitigation and host a remote industry insights presentation led by Rowland Wright, International Business Development Manager at SKYDEX in collaboration with the company’s partner, TSS International B.V.

Recognized as the world’s premier event for the armoured vehicle community, the IAVs conference gathers defence leaders and features exceptional speakers to share perspectives on the latest technologies, trends and concepts for land vehicles and force protection. As an event sponsor and presenter, SKYDEX represents a select group of extraordinary companies who are at the forefront of innovation in the protection space. On February 2 at 1330 GMT, Mr. Wright will present an industry insights session on behalf of SKYDEX which will be focused on armour platform blast protection with TSS, who works with vehicle manufacturers to perform sophisticated evaluation and modeling including Finite Element Analysis for survivability performance.

“We’re excited to have the opportunity to participate in the annual International Armoured Vehicles Conference this year and connect with leaders from the armoured community despite the challenges of the pandemic,” said Rowland Wright, Business Development Manager at SKYDEX. “Our industry insights session will give us the opportunity to highlight the benefits of our blast mitigation solutions for military leaders and offer a closer look at the incredible technology which is engineered to enhance occupant survivability. The company’s advanced materials solve a range of protection challenges for all vehicle platforms and protect the lives of service members.”

For the first time, the IAVs event will be hosted online due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding COVID-19. Although the conference has pivoted to a virtual environment it will continue to deliver an outstanding level of content and feature expanded conversations plus new sessions about C4i, Amphibious Vehicle capability, robotics and autonomy, to name a few.
