Why You Should Attend This Summit:

The 2018 Military Tactical Communications Summit will serve as an educational forum for personnel from US Military Commands, DoD Labs, and Industry to discuss the efforts being made to advance C4ISR capabilities, as well as enhance the tactical network for the Warfighter. The Summit will look to strengthen the commanders' situational awareness and C2 capabilities through ensuring reliable access to data, voice, and video anytime and anywhere on the tactical edge.

The current Warfighter requires a real-time, operational picture to ensure information dominance. While operating in an array of austere, expeditionary environments, their ability to receive and transmit critical information may become compromised. This makes the Warfighter reliant on the Commander to effectively communicate this vital information to them from Mission Command.

To ensure that operational superiority is maintained, both the Commander and the Warfighter will need to be provided with a network that is simple, yet agile. Commanders are dependent upon the development of resilient, sustainable tactical networks for continued battlefield success. This summit will provide an in-depth look into the policies and strategies that are currently facilitating tactical communication networks for increased operational flexibility.

Our team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Summit's content and focus areas, and we will assemble the most respected minds in the community from operational leaders, the R&D Community, key policy-makers, as well as solution providers from industry and academia. Our non-partisan approach allows us to reach across all involved organizations bring together a truly holistic group of decision makers and solution providers.
