Why You Should Attend This Summit

In all mission sets, the ability to effectively communicate from the command level to the tactical level is of the utmost importance. It is especially important when considering joint force cooperation across multiple operating domains, as the ability to connect and communicate across various network architectures becomes increasingly difficult.

In order to fight in a multi-domain, joint environment, military services need the strength of an effective and efficient network to support communication capabilities. To support these capabilities, this Summit will examine the various initiatives regarding tactical data link tools, waveform standards, as well as numerous other wireless communication technologies and trends.

The Joint Tactical Networks Summit will focus on the technologies, policies, and strategies that enable robust communication systems and advanced network architectures to facilitate joint cooperation in a multiple domain environment to support mission success.

Our team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Summits' content and focus areas, and we will assemble the most respected minds in the Communication and Network communities both military and civil offices, along with key leaders in industry. Our non-partisan approach allows us to reach across all involved organizations to bring together a truly holistic group of decisions makers and solution providers.


''We need a degree of jointness, in my opinion, in which no one military service dominates and domain has a fixed boundary. A combatant commander must be able to create effects from an single domain to target our Military Services need the network capabilities in every domain in order to fight tonight and win''
ADM Harry Harris, Commander PACCOM, October, 2016
