SMi is proud to present the 8th annual Social Media in the Defence and Military Sector conference, taking place on the 28th and 29th November in London, United Kingdom.

Social media has become an increasingly vital tool for the Armed Forces in the 21st Century, not only to reach out to a wider and younger audience globally for recruitment and information purposes but as a new front in warfare. Serving military and government personnel have access to new platforms and information, leading to an increase in their personal communications but also an increase in information risk management. Social media channels are also heavily sued to promote armed forces’ activities abroad and increasing transparency with host societies (a strong part of the “Hearts and Minds” campaigns).

This event is primarily focused on how the military and defence agencies use social media in their day-to-day activities such as communication, recruitment, and during operations and campaigns. This year will also feature sessions on cyber warfare and using social media platforms for open-source intelligence gathering.

This event is CPD accredited.

This year's conference will enhance understanding of social media usage and increase awareness and engagement between the military and the public.

Building on the 2017 event, the 2018 event promises to delve deeper into the role of cyber warfare and civil-military relations. Hear from experts from government agencies on how they use social media to promote their campaigns and engage directly with the public. Get updates from the platforms themselves and how they engage with the defence and military sector.

The 19th annual Military Airlift and Air-Air Refuelling conference and exhibition will return to Rome on the 4th and 5th December 2018, with a brand-new pre-conference focus day on Air-Air Refuelling on the 3rd December 2018.

With the airlift sector in constant development, there are more than 800 new platforms set to be delivered at a combined value over $65 billion in the next 10 years. The need to transport troops, cargo, medical supplies, vehicles and other mission critical equipment remains fundamental to any defence force that aims to deploy globally. The importance of ready rapid response to ensure these forces can be mobilised and moved quickly is crucial for any expeditionary operation.

Sustaining and maintaining this air mobility feeds into the second aspect of this important event. Air-to-Air refuelling remains vital to deliver extended flight time for both transport and strike components of an air force and without which extended aerial deployments would simply not be possible.

KEY FOCUSES INCLUDE:

• Forward basing and expeditionary operations

• International operability

• Training

• Airlift platform acquisition

• Air-air refuelling

• Medevac

• Pooling and sharing

• Tactical, humanitarian and strategic airlift

• Ground support equipment

With the ability to effectively communicate driving the tempo of the modern battlespace, the need to know ‘where I am, where my friends are and where the enemy is’ remains fundamental for the success of any operation.

This critical requirement has become ever more vital as militaries deploy in degraded environments to tackle asymmetrical threats and electronic warfare technologies which risk disrupting the allied ability to effectively operate.

SMi’s 12th annual Mobile Deployable Communications conference returns to further explore key drivers causing the growing demand for flexible, protected, and interoperable CIS capabilities, and through expert led presentations, from some of the world's leading authorities, will discuss the challenges for both solution providers and end users of deployable communications.

Key topics include: SatCom on the move, software defined radios, ground terminals and network-enabled capabilities, standardising C4ISR networks, building tactical CIS networks and maximising data telemetry resiliency, operational feedback, research and development and much more!
