Returning for its 6th annual instalment Mobile Deployable Communications will address the key topics of CIS networks and tactical communications, C4I standardisation, interoperability across the global armed forces, operational experiences and future technologies. The domination of current events across the defence sector has reignited the need for multinational cooperation through interoperability. This year the conference will address the communication equipment used by our armed forces when deployed illustrating the practical elements are just as significant as the technology which supports deployed soldiers.
This year's event will develop on by achieving:
- More representation from European armed forces and global defence organisations
- Innovative presentations on the capabilities and requirements in the fields of military communications
- A more technical approach discussing communication equipment and the technical aspects of military networks will be addressed as a suggestion from past delegates
- More focus on training foreign nationals on how to use current communications systems i.e. the Afghan Army and Police Force
LISTEN to innovative presentations on the current tactical communication systems used by the global armed forces and defence organisations
MEET the key players in the mobile deployable communications community
ANALYSE the communications challenges facing deployed units and their commanders
DISCUSS with key industry and military figures the capabilities and requriements for mobile deployable communications across the defence sector
DEVELOP solutions for future mobile communication and network systems to support deployed soldiers
With the implementation of "cloud computing" particulalry across the US military the security of this newly established network has been called into question. Is "cloud computing" a secure way for the military to communicate? Are there flaws in its system which could lead to information being revelaed?
A current topic which will be discussed is the withdrawal from Afghanistan and Iraq. A number of presentations will be focusing on the training given to the National Armies and Polcie Forces in communications and information systems by deployed soldiers.
These questions and more will be answered at SMi's Mobile Deployable Communications 2013 conference. It is important that the current issues surrounding mobile deployable communications are addressed by leading military and industry personnel so that key soultions can be discussed and developed.
