Maritime Information Warfare

18th-19th November 2019

London, UK

www.maritimeinfowarfare.com/janeswl

SMi’s Maritime Information Warfare conference is returning to London, UK on 18 – 19 November 2019 for its 3rd year, with the aim of exploring how information warfare can be maximised and managed for the modern navy.

The two-day event will focus on the strategies, systems and new technologies set to increase information warfare capabilities, as well as the challenges associated with engaging in information warfare. Gaining operational effectiveness via “information advantage” is vital to the abilities of any Navy, as rapid technological advances change the way maritime forces utilise and manage information.

Key topics set to be discussed at this year’s event include: AI, Information Exploitation and Big Data, Cyber Security and Defence, C4ISR and much more. The focus will be on these key themes, as well as building on the Royal Navy’s Information Warrior exercises, and the latest developments and novel approaches in the sector, as we look at how both military and industry can utilise these capabilities to improve operations.

Major navies such as the UK and US have already established significant cyber divisions, for example the US’s dedicated 10th fleet, which goes to show how navies are recognising the need to prioritise ‘Information Warfare’ in order to maintain strength in the maritime sphere.

Highlights of the 2019 conference include:

  • Keynote Briefing from Commodore Ian Annett, Assistant Chief of Staff Information Warfare and Chief Information Officer, Royal Navy, on the Future of Royal Navy Developments and Capabilities
  • Updates on Maritime Systems and Platforms across NATO and how they are improving Data Exploitation
  • Emphasis on Cyber Warfare, and the importance of more effective Cyber Defence as the maritime sphere becomes more information technology-centric
  • Focus on Artificial Intelligence, in particular how a mixture of automation, machine learning, and unmanned systems are being developed

Social Media in the Defence and Military Sectors

London, UK

www.militarysocialmedia.com/janeswl

SMi Group is proud to present the 9th annual conference on Social Media in the Defence and Military Sectors, which will take place in London on the 20th and 21st November 2019.

Social Media has become a crucial tool for the Armed Forces in the 21st century, and can be used as a platform to reach out to a global audience for information and recruitment purposes, to fulfil a welfare function for personnel keeping in touch with family and friends, and as a strategic communication tool for opinion forming and psychological operations.

With this in mind, the two-day Social Media in the Defence and Military Sectors conference provides the ideal platform to discuss social media strategies, platforms and tools used in the armed forces’ day-to-day activities from branding and recruitment to frontline operations, intelligence, and cyber warfare.

NEW FOR 2019:

· Crisis Communications

· A Social Media Platform focus

· Industry updates

· Briefing from International Organization for Migration (IOM)

· US Special Operations Forces approach with a focus on psycho-social and cultural landscapes

· Two Interactive workshops on: ‘Audience Engagement through Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR)’ & ‘Digital Transformation in Government Communications’

Military Airlift and Air-to-Air Refuelling
Lisbon, Portugal
3rd - 4th December 2019
http://www.military-airlift.com/janes

SMi Group are proud to announce that the 20th annual Miltary Airlift and Air-to-Air Refuelling conference and exhibition will return this December to Lisbon, Portugal, where key upgrade programmes for the C-27J and C-130J are underway.

As strategic and heavy airlift continues to drive expeditionary capability – the market capitalisation of this mission critical sector continues to grow. Delivering ‘boots on the ground’, as well as materiel, cargo and humanitarian relief remains a fundamental capability for modern air forces.

With the Airbus A400M programme developing within Europe at pace, Lockheed expanding their market capitalisation within the US through the C-5 and C-17, and Embraer breaking into the sector with a new joint venture to challenge the traditional players – this is a critical time in the industry.

Similarly, the growing use of commercial providers to deliver MRO and other services has grown as the outsourcing of these expensive sovereign assets becomes a priority for many fledging and established forces.

With unparalleled networking opportunities, the Military Airlift and Air-Air Refuelling conference remains a key calendar date for anyone involved in air mobility!

Mobile Deployable Communications

30th - 31st January 2020

Warsaw, Poland

http://www.mobiledeployable.com/janes

With support from the Polish Armed Forces, the 13th annual Mobile Deployable Communications conference returns to Warsaw in January 2020. Featuring exclusive briefings from key regional partners and their international allies, the conference explores battlefield communications systems in the Central and Eastern European operational environment and their role in maximising operational effectiveness.

Effective communication on the battlefield is becoming increasingly vital as militaries seek to gain, maintain and exploit the information advantage in a rapidly changing battlespace. To prepare for future engagements, militaries must especially focus on the resilience and protection of communications in degraded environments as near-peer adversaries are utilising ever more complex electronic warfare technologies.

This annual conference will bring together 100+ international delegates, including leading program managers, strategic decision-makers, industry experts and thought leaders from CEE and further afield, to explore the latest developments in communications technology and the challenges for both solution providers and end users.

Key Focuses Include:

  • Central and Eastern European (CEE) operational environment
  • Interoperability of communications equipment between allied militaries
  • Procurement, research and development of the latest communications technology
  • Resilience and security of tactical communications systems, such as anti-jamming technology
