SMi’s Maritime Information Warfare conference is returning to London, UK on 18 – 19 November 2019 for its 3rd year, with the aim of exploring how information warfare can be maximised and managed for the modern navy. Rapid technological advances are changing the way maritime forces utilise and manage information. Achieving operational effectiveness and “Information Advantage” is now more vital than ever to the success of any navy. For this reason, major nations, such as the UK and US, have already established potent cyber formations, such as the US Navy’s dedicated 10th fleet.
With this in mind, the two-day event will focus on the strategies, systems and new technologies set to increase information warfare capabilities, as well as the challenges associated with engaging in information warfare.
Key topics include: Artificial Intelligence (AI), Information Exploitation and Big Data, Cyber Security and Defence, Command Control Communication and Computers (C4), Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR), and more.
Highlights of the 2019 conference include:
Keynote Briefing from Commodore Ian Annett, Assistant Chief of Staff Information Warfare and Chief Information Officer, Royal Navy, on the Future of Royal Navy Developments and Capabilities
Updates on Maritime Systems and Platforms across NATO and how they are improving Data Exploitation
Emphasis on Cyber Warfare, and the importance of more effective Cyber Defence as the maritime sphere becomes more information technology-centric
Focus on Artificial Intelligence, in particular how a mixture of automation, machine learning, and unmanned systems are being developed
