Military Vetronics Architectures

* The next MVA training course will be held on 9-10 May 2017 *

The Military Vetronics Architectures (MVA) course is a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) course run by the Vetronics Research Centre (VRC) and accredited by the University of Brighton in the UK. This 2-day intensive course provides a clear strategy for new military vetronics capabilities, enhancing existing platforms, and designing the military vehicles of the future.


The MVA CPD course is invaluable for those working with millitary land vehicles and associated platforms, in all areas of design, operation, and procurement, throughout a vehicle's life-cycle.

After attending this course, the delegate will have gained:

  • knowledge of the fundamental concepts of Vetronics Architectures and the requirements within platform integration, with reference to the Standards and Guidelines set out by the UK Generic Vehicle Architecture (GVA) and the Vehicle Systems Integration (VSI) programmes,
  • a comprehensive understanding of the individual stages of the Vetronics life-cycle and important considerations for the procurement process of military vehicles and land platforms,
  • a comprehensive understanding of the evaluation process to support through-life capability management.


The course has an optional credit-bearing extension where 10 Credits at Masters-Level can be gained after the submission of a short report within 1 month of attending the course. Further details are available in the Course Content & Optional Assessment Task.
