We are proud to present the 3rd annual Maritime Information Warfare conference to be held in London. With rapid technological advances changing the way maritime forces utilise and manage information, the ability to wage information warfare has become a critical component of naval capability. Gaining operational effectiveness through "information advantage" is critical to the abilities of any Navy on the world stage. The initial draft of the programme looks at engaging with the cutting edge of information warfare; learning lessons and taking inspiration from exercises across NATO, in particular the Royal Navies Ex Information Warrior in 2018/2019.

This event is about discussing strategies, systems, and new technologies to increase information warfare capabilities, as well as the challenges associated with engaging in information warfare.

The main themes within the conference include Artificial Intelligence (AI), Information Exploitation and Big data, Cyber Security and Defence, Command Control Communication and Computers (C4), and Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR).
