SMi Group are proud to announce that the 13th annual Defence Exports conference will return to Rome on the 19th and 20th September, as the leading event for defence trade compliance.

This year’s agenda will focus on the emerging issues and challenges facing the defence trade in 2018 – sharing best practices for how leading organisations manage their global trade programmes.

After a year in office, the US Presidential administration is yet to make its intentions regarding trade reform clear and, with the Brexit deadline of March 2019 drawing closer, significant development to trade control is expected on both sides of the Atlantic.

A truly global event, delegates will hear from government speakers and senior international trade compliance professionals from around the world on regulation controls including: ITAR, EAR, ECR, Dual-Use and the Wassenaar Arrangement.

In addition, with a growing number of high profile cyber-attacks hitting industries across the globe in 2017, there is an urgent need to implement risk management strategies to adapt to the reliance on cloud-computing and cloud-services.

SMi is thrilled to announce the return of the third annual UAV Technology conference, which will return to Prague, Czech Republic on 26th and 27th September 2018.

UAVs now, more than ever, play a pivotal role as a tactical and operational tool for the Armed Forces. With the dramatic upshift in threats and proliferation of technologies, there is an increasing need to develop cost-effective, cutting edge capabilities that can support operations through enhanced ISR, lethality and mobility.

SMi’s UAV Technology conference will aim to examine and bring solutions to unmanned aerial platforms and how to better exploit them during missions. This international symposium will additionally address the growing need for counter- Unmanned Aerial Vehicle capabilities now that they are becoming increasingly accessible both to state and non-state organisations. This has particular prominence as commercial-off-the-shelf solutions (COTS) to unmanned aerial systems are now readily available to civilians, this in turn has clear implications to the military which needs to be addressed.

The two-day event will bring together a community of experts, friends and allies to share information and strengthen relationships reflecting the growing need of nations, armed forces and industries to come together in order to achieve higher levels of capabilities. Attending this conference in September will mean to not only have a clear understanding of UAVs but to have a chance to be part of a community of leaders and experts that will impact the growth of these technological assets.

EVENT HIGHLIGHTS

1. Leading networking event focused on the procurement and development of UAV and counter-UAS capabilities globally

2. The chance to obtain insights from leading nations in the realm of automatic and unmanned technologies such as the US, the UK, Poland, Denmark, Switzerland, Germany, Czech Republic, Luxembourg, Estonia and Finland, to name but a few.

3. Discuss existing and emerging applications of unmanned aerial platforms & address consequential requirements from military & law enforcement operations in a region with a unique focus on military investments and upgrades.

4. Become a part of the community striving to maximise UAV capabilities while also accurately responding to the threats they pose on national and border security

5. Gain a clear understanding of the market and meet key technology providers at the forefront of unmanned aerial capability development.

The Defence Safety Conference
Supported by The Defence Safety Authority, UK MoD

The Defence Safety Conference is the first of its kind exclusively dedicated to safety across the defence domain.

This unique two-day event will showcase how leading defence forces promote and manage safety across their organisations and why in the modern military environment, safety is being raised on the strategic agenda and seen as a force multiplier.

Featuring high level briefings from more than 10 nations and covering the broad spectrum of safety across military aviation, land and maritime; the Defence Safety Conference will aim to reduce avoidable deaths, improve protection of capability and preserve the reputation of those that operate, supply and support defence services.

“I believe this will be the first conference of its type, with a specific focus on Defence Safety. I hope the rationale for the conference will convince you of its value and the opportunity it offers your organisation as a platform to promote and discuss how we can together drive the continuous improvement in safety that we all seek. This SMi conference is being run with the support of the UK’s Defence Safety Authority (DSA).”

Lieutenant General Richard Felton CBE, Director General, Defence Safety Authority, UK MOD
