Detect, Deter, Defeat: Preserving Decision-Making Advantage in the Information Age

NATO and its global partners and allies are preparing to gather once again for the annual Airborne ISR & C2 Battle Management conference, one of the world's most prestigious strategic defence conferences.

The 5th annual conference will be shaped around concepts such as multi-domain C2 and strategic deterrence, acknowledging that the current state of geopolitical entropy induced from both non-state actors and near-peer adversaries presents the airborne community with a broad and diverse range of new and enduring challenges and threats. Against this backdrop, information will be critical to maintaining decision-making dominance across multiple domains and, indeed, will play a significant factor in both strategic deterrence and engagement of our enemies.

As we look ahead to the next NATO Summit in the summer of 2018, the conference will ask how the alliance and its allies are developing a framework to confront these challenges, reshaping C2ISR CONOPS and maintain decision-making advantage in a complex world.

  • Capability Development and Acquisition for the Information Age
