Airborne Networks Conference

23 October, 2012 - 25 October, 2012, Las Vegas, NV, United States

Benefits of Attending

Airborne Networks promise to move us closer to the real-time, persistent ISR and distributed targeting necessary to make net-centric operations a reality. The development of airborne networks will depend upon technologies and systems being developed in both the commercial and military markets, and there will be numerous opportunities for cross-over applications.

This conference brings together the key experts who are working on making military airborne networks a reality.

  • What are the latest Service needs and initiatives?
  • What is the status and future of Airborne JTRS?
  • Will key programs like JALN, BACN, CABLE, TTNT, FAST, FAB-T, etc. provide the technical breakthroughs to make real-time into and out of the cockpit (RTIC/RTOC) and the web-enabled cockpit a reality?
  • What are the challenges and emerging solutions in integrating current and future aircraft into the GIG? In Manned/Unmanned Platform Integration? Airborne/SATCOM/Terrestrial/Surface Communications Integration?
  • What technologies are needed to develop future adaptive, ad-hoc, mobile, broadband, IP-based airborne nets?

These and many other questions will be addressed during this outstanding event.
