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.

SMis 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!

Defence Supply Chain and Logistics

27/02/2018 - 01/03/2018
London, UK

Now is the time to transform the defence supply chain. Future missions - across multiple domains - will depend on the ability of logisticians to accurately predict demand, as a means to support the accelerated supply and sustainment of deployed forces. In doing so, they will depend not only on a suite of advanced SCM technologies, but on a proactive approach to internal training, which can support the delivery of process excellence for the supply chain operators of tomorrow. 

Join us in London next February for Defence Supply Chain & Logistics 2018. Co-located with Defence IQ’s Military Engineering summit, and part of the inaugural Combat Support Week, the forum will provide a never-before-seen opportunity to revolutionise your support chain end-to-end. By joining, you will benefit from a joint networking space, a cross-service audience and a series of senior joint-plenary sessions, highlighting opportunities for logisticians and engineers to deliver collaborative mission support.

Defence Logistics Central & Eastern Europe

Hotel Angelo, Prague, Czech Republic

SMi presents the 3rd Annual Conference:

About Defence Logistics (CEE)

The SMi Group is proud to announce the third annual Defence Logistics Central and Eastern Europe conference, to be held in Prague from the 6th – 7th March 2018.

Based on the success of our previous two defence logistics conference, which were supported by the Czech Armed Forces, we aim to enable senior logistics and combat service support representatives from local militaries, international defence organisations, and commercial entities to share and learn from one another in a highly focused environment.

As allies continue to base troops in the area on a rotational basis, it is important to have an efficient logistics mechanism to support them and the host nation forces. As such, there needs to be an international standard which all forces must be brought up to, allowing for better integration and provision of services such as engineering, supply chain forecasting, fuel, medical assistance, transport, and logistics command and control.

Join us this March, as SMi’s Defence Logistics Central and Eastern Europe conference brings together military speakers from regional and international nations to analyse and discuss the latest defence logistics advancements in terms of communications and C2 optimisation, transportation and logistics execution strategy, medical logistics capacity and planning, and logistics in mission operations.
