Network Centric Warfare Conference


Rome, Italy

We are proud to present the 3rd annual Network Centric Warfare conference, taking place in Rome on the 4th and 5th February 2019.

As the 21st Century battlefield becomes increasingly complex and asymmetrical, military forces are striving to harness network technology to gain an operational advantage, transforming traditional linear command structures by linking sensors, unmanned vehicles, command posts, and soldiers on the ground.

Network Centric Warfare allows for greater information sharing and streamlined decision-making, enhancing operational effectiveness. Robust and dynamic networks are therefore now a crucial requirement for successful joint operations, and are essential to modern military capabilities.

This conference will bring together Network Centric Warfare planners, practitioners, and experts for invaluable insight and discussion of an increasingly important topic in the world of defence.
