C4ISR Summit Middle East

Generate and disseminate to dominate

The past year has witnessed a change in paradigm for security in the Gulf, with a decreased emphasis on the traditional adversary in the North to a new asymmetrical threat which the GCC and its allies now faces in Yemen. This conflict demands even more from C4ISR systems, with an enhanced need for war fighters to be able to distinguish between military and civilian targets in real-time and the need to effectively share information between the different partners in the coalition without hesitation.

In this new fast-paced environment, there is no time for the delays of proprietary stovepipes and interoperability challenges for the militaries of the GCC. Now, more than ever, the decision makers of the GCC militaries need to implement an effective capacity for interoperability as a matter of critical urgency.

Join us at the 4th Annual C4ISR Summit where decision makers from the GCC and abroad will address the challenges of implementing integrated C4ISR systems and see the future of network-centric capabilities in the Middle East for yourself.
