The largest exhibition forum in North America in the field of land forces just finished. The forum, held in Washington D.C. (United States) from 14 to 16 October, was promoted by the Association of the United States Army.

The event saw the participation of the Chief of the Italian Army General Staff, Lieutenant General Salvatore Farina, of numerous personalities of the civil and military world, including the Chiefs of Staff of the Armies of over 15 nations, and about 700 exhibitors from 80 countries.

The forum represented a very important moment of exchange of views on the main developments of the Land Forces in the operating environment of today and tomorrow, on the evolution of employment scenarios and on the priority needs for prevention, surveillance, protection and effectiveness of engagement, even at a distance.

An increasingly complex and continuous expansion environment in fields such as the cyber one, in which the use of sensors and adequate interconnection and command and control structures will be determining factors for each army and, overall, for the entire Atlantic Alliance. These are aspects that are already present in today's dynamics and that open the way to further collaborations and synergies.

Lieutenant General Salvatore Farina also met his American counterpart, General James McConville, and the Commander of the Army Futures Command, General John Murray. The attention was focused on strengthening bilateral cooperation and on issues of common interest such as the interoperability and systems and platforms commonality between the two Armed Forces and also the field of education and training.
