Last year the Rü.Net (User Forum Armament and Use) took place for the first time in Vallendar near Koblenz. In organisational terms and in particular based on our renowned event Log.Net (User Forum Logistics), the Rü.Net has become another high-level event of our business line "Events".
Thanks especially to the coordination of content with the Federal Office for Equipment, Information Technology and Utilization of the Bundeswehr (BAAINBw), we have been able to organize an event that covered a large part of the fields of armament and use.
We deliberately did not want to address only the global players of the community. With this event, we also explicitly dedicated ourselves to the middle class of the defence industry. After several feedback discussions, it can be seen that Rü.Net is already a "place to be" after its first impact.
We expect this successful event to be repeated in 2019. The proven location in Vallendar near Koblenz will again serve as the location for this event. The planned date is Sept. 4 and 5, 2019. If you are a newcomer in the industry, this event offers the ideal opportunity to present yourself at the highest level. If you are already familiar with the industry, participation can be considered obligatory. We will keep you up to date on the current status of our plans.

From 12 to 13 November 2019 the 11th Vienna symposium series "Military and Logistics" will take place in Vienna. This year's programme focuses on "Multimodal transport solutions". In cooperation with the Austrian Federal Ministry of Defence, it was again possible to develop an ambitious and informative programme this year.
The relocation of national and multinational combat units often requires multimodal transport solutions. The participants can expect exciting lectures with field reports from MCCE, AMCC, NSPA and other organisations. The transport possibilities for air, land, sea and rail transport will be given special consideration. German and Czech representatives will describe some impressions from RSOM and underline the multinationality of the topic. The official language of the event will be English. The accompanying exhibition provides an exciting view of the current development processes.
The Logistics User Forum (Log.Net) will take place for the 12th time on 19/20 February at the Hochschule Bonn/Rhein-Sieg.
The topics of classic basic logistics as well as IT support, life cycle management, innovations in logistics and integrated logistics support are an integral part of the event and will be expanded by the Armed Forces Base (SKB). In the context of Germany's enabler role for logistics operations in the NATO area, the Bundeswehr would (must) rely on commercial support in the future. There is still a need for action here. In this context, Log.Net offers a relevant and sustainable network that has been developed and established for more than a decade.
We are pleased to have won Lieutenant General Peter Bohrer as a keynote speaker in this context. In his function as Deputy Inspector of the Armed Forces Base(SKB), he will comment on current challenges.
New environment, old challenge
The framework conditions for armed forces logistics have fundamentally evolved as a result of the Weißbuch 2016 strategy papers, the conception of the Bundeswehr and its capability profile. In addition to the processes already tried and tested in international missions, national and alliance defence are now equally important alongside this already demanding task. Germany plays a key role in NATO's logistics concept as a logistics hub and enabler.
In addition to the new NATO command in Ulm, which is to be set up, SKB is also involved in the implementation of the concept. Here one would like to examine particularly the possibilities of the co-operation of the armed forces and the industry. Due to the elimination of logistic structures within the national and alliance defence, the armed forces will have to rely on the support of industry in the future.
With our symposium, we would like to focus on this area of conflict in the usual comprehensive and equal way for armed forces and industry and offer a neutral communication platform for the demanding discipline of armed forces logistics.
Place to be
Log.net is the "place to be" for the logistical service network of the German armed forces and industry. In addition to personal participation, it is also possible to present your company's service portfolio for the armed forces in a presentation area.
The cpm team will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
