SMi Group Reports (2017.08.01, London, UK): Registration Now Open for Maritime Information Warfare 2017
SMi is pleased to announce that registration is now open for the highly anticipated Maritime Information Warfare conference, taking place in London on the 6th and 7th December 2017. This exclusive military event will focus on the growing need for navies to develop their information exploitation capabilities. As navies must now achieve strategic superiority in both conventional and asymmetrical conflict environments, knowledge is the new ‘king of the battlefield’. The utilization of real-time data is key to ensuring mission success.
2017 will look at the platforms used for acquiring data; ranging from open source intelligence to more traditional ISR systems, the ways in which information is examined through big data analytics and ground-breaking machine learning before ultimately to considering how this effects decision making in the field. It also captures the current movement within the maritime domain – running off the back of the Royal Navy’s ‘Information Warrior’, which is looking to expand the Royal Navies information exploitation capabilities to achieve operational superiority at sea.
Covering the latest advances from Navies, Coast Guards and Maritime Agencies relating to: Information Exploitation, Artificial Intelligence, Autonomous Systems, Cyber Security, ISR, C4I, Big data, Open Source Intelligence Gathering and more.
With presentations from an unrivalled military and industry speaker line-up, including keynote presentations from: Vice Admiral Michael Gilday, Commander, US Fleet Cyber Command, US Navy, Admiral Sir George Zambellas, Former Chief of Naval Staff, Royal Navy and Commander Neil Hall, SO1 Cyber Security, Royal Navy.
The full event agenda is also available on the event website.
There is a £300 early bird booking discount available until 31st August. To register or for more information, visit:
