SAE Media Group is proud to host the 9th annual Future Soldier Technology conference, returning to London on the 7th - 8th of March 2023, and with our popular Dismounted Situational Awareness Focus Day taking place on the 6th March 2023.

Building on the huge success of our previous Future Soldier Technology conferences, the 2023 meeting will be an excellent international gathering of senior officers and programme managers who are seeking to enhance their programmes. Additionally, this forum offers an excellent platform for programme managers within the military to interface with senior experts from within the defence industry.

As the only dedicated future soldier focused conference, we endeavour to deliver genuine insight and learning through the expertly selected participants who run our discussions and panels, ensuring the latest developments from all parts of the community (industry and military) are covered in great detail.

From design to production, BTI maintains complete in-house capabilities to develop fully integrated systems supporting US and Worldwide Military and Commercial markets.

BTI has traditionally supported the dismounted soldier by providing the highest portable power and energy available in the smallest, lightest packages, whilst always maintaining the highest level of safety standards. Through the evolution of rechargeable battery systems, initially with Nickle Cadmium, through Nickle Metal Hydride to the current forefront of technology, Lithium Ion, BTI have consistently provided the warfighter with the best technology available.With reliability at the forefront of user’s requirements, BTI pride themselves with an outstanding field-proven record of dependability. In addition, BTI was the first battery manufacturer of rechargeable batteries to provide a visual state of charge indicator to further enhance the confidence of the user.

Specific to the arena of the Future Soldier ideology, in 2004 BTI were the first to provide a battery specifically designed to be used as a centralised power source for the dismounted soldier. The SMP battery range from Bren-Tronics is unique in so much that the battery is designed around the most energy efficient Li Ion cell available. Consequently, the energy density (run time per weight and size) is the highest currently achievable.

The SMP battery is currently in use by the German IDZ programme and recently the same battery has now been selected as the battery of choice for the Benelux “VOSS” Future Soldier programme.

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.


There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.


Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SAE Media Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.


Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.
