Network Centric Warfare 2018 - 27/09/2017

Agenda released & Registration now open

Registration is now open for SMi’s Network Centric Warfare conference which will take place on 1-2 February 2018 in Rome, Italy.

SMi Group has released the agenda for its Network Centric Warfare 2018 Conference.

As militaries continue to operate in increasingly complex and asymmetrical environments, effective communications and system interoperability has become more critical to ensure forces remain agile and versatile.

Network Centric Warfare 2018 will provide a platform to address challenges and issues surrounding the demand for modernisation and digitisation of information, the growing need for interoperability within communication systems, and procurement for technological advancements of military assets.

In addition, the event will capture key updates to the network-centric programmes, including the UK’s BATCIS-MORPHEUS programmes and Italy’s FORZA NEC as it moves to production stage in 2018.

With aims of providing delegates with the latest updates and insights on this significant topic, this year's event will showcase:

  • A dedicated focus on the interaction between land and air units within network enabled operations
  • Sessions from the British Army BATCIS programme, Italian Army, Italian Navy, US Army Europe, NATO, and other leading experts on the latest technological developments within the network enabled domain
  • Essential briefings on the digitisation of battlespace through proliferation of network enabled systems
  • Meet and network with military and industry decision makers in communication system interoperability
  • Explore how digital fires within joint operations will revolutionise military resource capability

This is just a snapshot of what you can expect at Network Centric Warfare 2018. Visit the event website for more information.

Our high-level speakers will deliberate how various NEC programmes can impact operational effectiveness and help optimise the future of tactical warfare. Featured speakers and experts include the Italian Army, Italian Navy, UK Ministry of Defence, DISA Europe, US Army Europe, NATO Shape, Royal Netherlands Air Force, DSTL and many more.

The full agenda as well as registration information can be found on www.netcentric-warfare.com/defsupPR.
