Airborne C2ISR conference

The Global Airborne Intelligence and C2 Community's Annual General Meeting

London, United Kingdom

Optimizing the OODA Loop

An ISR Enterprise for the Full Spectrum of Conflict

Now in its seventh year, the international Airborne C2ISR conference has built a strong reputation among leaders from the Air and Intelligence communities who recognize the need to strengthen partnerships, share strategic objectives and build trust and understanding in an effort to enhance global intelligence and command and control infrastructures across the air, space and cyber domains.

Building on the success of our 2019 event, which brought together over 200 delegates to discuss the concepts of global reach and deterrence, next year's conference will be themed around decision advantage for the full spectrum of conflict, with emphasis on the changing nature of the 'OODA Loop' in a time of emerging disruptive technologies and the adoption of multi-domain concepts of operation. This theme has the potential to address some significant gaps in understanding between government and industry and across global alliances about the future of C2ISR as we plan for the full spectrum of operational environments and high-end, peer conflict.
