Military Smartphones and Handheld Devices Symposium

15 May, 2014 - 16 May, 2014, Washington, DC, United States

As more and more tactical, business, and social media capabilities migrate to smartphones and handheld devices, OSD and the Services have been tasked with finding a way to permit these capabilities to flourish and expand while ensuring that security and warfighter protection are maintained and enhanced. Results from recent Army experiments with providing smartphones on the battlefield via the Connecting Soldiers to Digital Applications (CSDA) initiative have proven the “utility of using smartphones across a full spectrum of military operations and domains with great results,” providing the opportunity to change how soldiers communicate, learn, and perform their mission.

This outstanding two day forum features senior military, government and industry experts who are defining the newest requirements and developing strategies for deploying next generation smartphones and handheld devices.

  • What roles will smartphones and handheld devices play in developing DoD-wide and Service-specific mobile enterprise strategies?
  • What is the status of Connecting Soldiers to Digital Applications (CSDA) and other initiatives?
  • What are the capabilities and limitations of current smartphone platforms? What does the future hold?
  • What new Transformative Apps are emerging for ISR, tactical support, video streaming and analytics, geo-fencing, remote diagnostics, logistics and inventory control, etc.?
  • What are the emerging guidelines for selecting apps and building use cases?

These and many other critical questions will be addressed during  this important two-day event!

Over 25 Leading Experts from Army CSDA-MCCoE/Army BMC & RDECOM, Army/FSC2/PEOC3T, OASD/C3 & Cyber, NSA, USCG (C4IT/CG-6), Army PEO Soldier, NASA, DHS (S&T), DISA, DARPA, FCC, Verizon, Samsung, AT&T, Agilex, Mobile Work Exchange, BBN Technologies, Invincea, Cellcrypt, and BTS Software examine:
