ISR & C2 Battle Management USA Summit

The proliferation of ISR technologies over the past decade of conflict in the Middle East and Central Asia has led to these assets becoming a mission critical component in operations. With new operating environments come new threat types and new capability challenges. In order to maintain information dominance the Intelligence Community needs to take the global lead and strive for intelligence generation, analysis and dissemination excellence.

Building on the discussions at the 2015 event, the 3rd annual ISR & C2 Battle Management USA Summit will once again provide 150+ Secretaries, Policy Makers, Chiefs of Staff, ISR Commanders, Acquisition Executives and Industry Leaders from the US Intelligence Community with their Annual General Meeting. The meeting will once again evaluate the challenges and success shaping ground, aerial, naval, space-borne and cyber ISR and C2 Battle Management for the current dynamic world of conflict and into the future.

With this challenge in mind the summit will focus on 3 specific elements:

  • Acquisition and development of next generation ISR and C2 Battle Management assets to ensure capability superiority
  • Alignment of Intelligence Community strategies with Process, Exploitation and Dissemination technological developments in order to provide timely, accurate and effective intelligence products
  • Domestic and International engagement designed to build mutually beneficial partnerships to solve challenges with transparent information sharing, the quality of shared post analysis products and use coalitions to maintain capability

To share and explore their thoughts on these discussion points, the conference will host an exceptional speaker faculty made up of senior officers from across the Intelligence Community in addition to the US's global allies.
