Past event: Mobile Deployable Communications Conference 2023

We are proud to announce the 16th annual Mobile Deployable Communications conference, taking place on 25th-26th January 2023.

From the strategic level down to the tactical, efficient and clear communications are key to operational success. The fast pace of modern warfare requires agile, highly adaptable forces capable of rapid movement whilst maintaining a consistent communication and situational awareness capability. Interoperability is also becoming increasingly important to ensure seamless command and control within a multinational coalition, especially given the rising operational tempo across Europe.

Why attend:

MDC will give you a unique opportunity to meet and network with senior military leaders and industry. Discover the latest communication technology to optimise battlefield C2. Join the discussion and shape the future of communications technology.

The Mobile Deployable Communications conference is designed to bring together global leading program managers, strategic decision-makers, industry experts and thought leaders to explore the latest developments in communications technology. MDC is the only truly international conference which focuses on deployable CIS.
