Maritime Information Warfare 2017

06/12/2017 - 07/12/2017
London, United Kingdom

Maritime Information Warfare will focus on the growing need for navies to develop their information exploitation capabilities. As navies must now achieve strategic superiority in both conventional and asymmetrical conflict environments, knowledge is the new ‘king of the battlefield’. The utilization of real-time data is key to ensuring mission success - whether operating in asymmetrical or more conventional environments.

The conference will look at the platforms used for data collection; ranging from open source data collection to more traditional ISR systems, and the ways in which that data is examined through big data analytics, ultimately to consider how this effects decision making in the field.

It also captures the current movement within the naval domain – running off the back of the Royal Navy’s ‘Information Warrior’, which is looking to expand its fleets data capture and utilize capability to achieve information superiority at sea.

Early registrations qualify for discount.

Network Centric Warfare 2018

01/02/2018 - 02/02/2018
Crowne Plaza Rome, St Peter’s Hotel & Spa, Rome, Italy

As we look into the 21st century, the way in which military forces communicate, disseminate intelligence and issue orders is changing as several NATO-aligned nations pursue network enabled capabilities programmes. There is now an emphasis on ‘system of systems’ network that empowers a robust web of interaction between air and ground forces – maximising asset deployment and creating a common operating picture.

As battlespace has become digitised, the focus on data and communication networking between joint forces and command and control facilities has taken centre stage. With combat exercises increasingly operating in asymmetrical environments, there is a growing need to exploit well networked forces. In this context, through streams of data and real-time analysis, decision making on the ground has become more effective and efficient - with robustly networked forces adaptively responding to threats with versatility and agility.

SMi’s  Network Centric Warfare conference will focus on key aspects challenging and enhancing joint operations - in particular, utilisation of digital fire support, interoperability between air and ground based communication systems, digitalisation of battlespace, improving technical education and the Forza NEC programme.

Featured speakers include: the Italian Army, Italian Navy, UK Ministry of Defence, Italian Air Force, NATO, DISA Europe, US Army Europe, Royal Netherlands Air Force, DSTL, Estonian National Defence College, and many more!

Early Birds apply: Book by 31 October to save £400. Book by 30 November to save £200. Book by 15 December to save £100.
