Past event: Automated ISR and Battle Management Live Broadcast Virtual Symposium

Modernizing the ISR Enterprise for Great Power Competition

The 9th Annual Automated ISR and Battle Management Symposium encourages members of the DoD, Intelligence Community, military services, and critical organizations to come together to discuss advances in technology and systems to collect and process actionable intelligence in support of decision makers and warfighters. As the US military continues to shift its priorities to preparing for a possible conflict against an advanced, near-peer competitors the need for rapid, accurate, and rugged battlefield intelligence systems. This program will facilitate discussions aimed at enhancing US ISR systems and capabilities and ensuring that they are capable of meeting the challenges of current and future battlefields.

This event is open to US citizens only.

Topics to be Covered at the 2021 Symposium:

  • Army Intelligence ISR Modernization Efforts for a Near-Peer Conflict
  • Utilizing ISR to Create a Decision Advantage
  • Delivering Intelligence Capabilities to Address Emerging Threats and Enable Operational Effectiveness
  • Developing Integrated ISR Sensors for Near-Peer Intelligence Collection
  • Exploiting AI to Improve the Speed, Completeness, and Accuracy of ISR Processing
  • Attaining Persistent and Penetrating ISR in Denied Air Space
  • Improving Partner Nation Intelligence Sharing in a Near-Peer Fight

Why you should attend this year's Symposium:

This educational symposium will bring together senior Intelligence officials, military leaders, academia, and solution providers to ensure ISR resources are being utilized as effectively and efficiently as possible in support of mission success.

With many of the ISR platforms currently used across the DoD becoming obsolete for future mission requirements, the US ISR enterprise needs to develop systems capable of meeting the challenges of a near-peer fight. Advances in enemy area denial capabilities hinder the effectiveness of current intelligence collection methods used by US Forces across the globe and create gaps in commanders' knowledge of the enemy. Emerging technologies, such as AI and machine learning, will enable platforms and systems to collect in previously denies areas and rapidly process and disseminate it to the warfighter.

This symposium will feature senior level discussions about advances in modern technology to help collect actionable intelligence better support the Commanders and the Warfighters. With the global threat environment continuing to evolve the need for clear and actionable intelligence collection only continues to grow. This symposium will allow for open and honest dialogue to solve the nation's most difficult challenges surrounding the efficiency of ISR capabilities.
