OPENING KEYNOTE ADDRESS
The opening keynote address will be delivered by General Denis Mercier, Commander, NATO Supreme Allied Command Transformation, who will discuss the current NATO strategy to combat the growing maritime threat, capability development projects for Naval Domain Intelligence, and future requirements for Allies to enhance tri domain interoperability.
INTEROPERABILITY IN A NETWORK CENTRIC ENVIRONMENT
Commanders need to know the networks and data displayed in real time is authentic to enable accurate decision making. Discover innovations within tactical networking, network management and wireless communication for beyond line of sight capabilities.
DOMINATING INFORMATION WARFARE
Listen to a unique insight into the impact on Naval Domain Intelligence from the Information Warrior projects, how to utilise unmanned systems in ASW to gain information superiority and how the UK is enhancing her capabilities within this domain.
COMMUNICATIONS IN A DENIED ENVIRONMENT
Modern C4ISR systems have significantly enhanced Naval operations but the meeting will provide solutions to an overreliance on high bandwidth, ship to shore, beyond line of sight capabilities have identified vulnerabilities in a denied environment where connectivity can be challenging.
Denied and deep sea operations limit the ability for signals to travel through water and thus hinder manoeuvrability. Explore research developments and projects, including an update from NATO’s JANUS project, as well as developments within underwater communication and data sharing and forward deployed energy and communication outpost for UUVs
UTILISING AIRBORNE ASSETS FOR NAVAL DOMAIN INTELLIGENCE
The future role and opportunities of UAVs means maritime surveillance will change Naval C4ISR dramatically. Challenges and programmes for mobile autonomous navy teams undertaking information surveillance and search operations, how Navies can utilise aircraft for alternative communication modes and the interoperability of aircraft within ship based combat systems will be discussed.
As Navies phase out legacy surveillance radar systems, the meeting will discuss how to ensure new systems can detect and discriminate effectively without compromising other combat systems. Delegates will discover the challenges and opportunities within the Swedish Navy’s Hydro acoustic sonar upgrade programme
UNDERWATER BATTLESPACE MANAGEMENT
It’s critical for commanders to take control of the underwater arena and manage operations with access to real time data. Delegates will explore how innovative sonar technology is being used to enhance data fusion and heighten detection for a complete recognised maritime picture.
