Past event: Network Centric Warfare (NCW) 2020 Conference

The only conference singularly focused on battlefield network programmes

As the modern battlespace becomes increasingly complex, military forces must act dynamically by harnessing cutting-edge network technology to exploit an information advantage. By linking shooters, commanders and sensors in a fully networked environment, militaries can streamline decision-making, enhance situational awareness and increase mission effectiveness.

Our 4th Annual Network Centric Warfare (NCW) Conference, returning to Rome in February, aims to explore the latest in battlefield network technology to help military forces achieve operational superiority.

2020 Highlights:

  • Receive comprehensive coverage of the entire NCW concept and network infrastructure, with a focus on several ongoing initiatives and strategies for maximising interoperability
  • Meet with cutting edge technology providers in the spheres of network communications, electronics, and C4I systems
  • Develop insights from the only event that provides focus on Italy's Forza NEC programme
  • Discover new perspectives from international expert speakers from Europe and North America, as well as new programmes in France, Germany, Netherlands, Estonia, Norway and more
