The 'Future Land Forces' conference was held in Warsaw, Poland, on November 7-9, bringing together a group of authoritative speakers comprised of leading industry experts, program managers, capability and requirements teams, front-line commanders, engineers, and scientists. Hundreds of attendees from the NATO community and industry partners joined to discuss strategies for joint land forces to maintain advantage in an ever-shifting world shaped by technology, climate change, and increasingly aggressive peers.


Globally, our allied land forces face numerous advanced threats, including unmanned aerial systems, anti-armor rounds, loitering munitions, and electronic warfare. Success in future land warfare requires innovative and cutting-edge solutions to meet the characteristics of the information age battlefield, as future equipment will be more lethal, expeditionary, and integrated, centered around digital capabilities.

Tom Noble, CEO of Noble Supply & Logistics LLC, addressed the attendees regarding the importance of the speed of acquisition of these rapidly evolving warfighter technologies. His message: "Speed = Tactical Advantage."

Tom not only spoke about the speed of procurement that's mission-critical to the US Military, but also discussed the length and complexity of FMS procurements that our allies face. He highlighted the importance of having a knowledgeable partner such as NOBLE to rapidly deploy mission-critical technology to our allies in need. NOBLE manages a vast supply chain of 15,000 suppliers, including today's cutting-edge defense technology manufacturers. Tom described how his company uses its existing contract vehicles and a fully-staffed and dedicated FMS team to expedite equipment from these manufacturers to the battlefield. The company provides a complete solution with additional services such as expediting, fielding, training, maintenance, and equipment management. NOBLE also provides subject matter expertise across six defense technology domains (Aerospace, C5ISR, CBRNE, Expeditionary, MRO, and Tactical).
