SMi are proud to host the inaugural Maritime Information Warfare conference, which will convene at the Copthorne Tara Hotel in London on the 6th and 7th December 2017.
As data and information drive operational advantage there is now a need for improved leadership and ownership across maritime information exploitation.
The need for collection, dissemination and optimisation of maritime data is driving change and improvement across an array of naval systems. Used across the joint environment, this will allow increased decision making in real time and the growth of machine learnt influence over naval platforms and systems.
Moving away from platform centric decisions and towards intuitive systems run by complex algorithms, the future of the blue economy and security at sea means evolving is no longer a choice, but a necessity for navies and maritime agencies globally.
With the Royal Navy recently hosting ‘information warrior,’ demonstrations are now taking place that show not only senior buy in, hence the support of the First Sea Lord Admiral Sir Philip Jones, but the desire from industry to demonstrate Artificial Intelligence, machine autonomy, enhanced Cyber security and big data optimisation across the maritime domain. This corresponds with major policy objectives within the United States, such as ‘Cyber Power 2020’ which seeks diversify naval capability in the cyber domain.
The Maritime Information Warfare 2017 conference will focus on the key aspects challenging and enhancing Naval and Maritime agencies in the exploitation of information in the digital age.
Offering an array of social opportunities Maritime Information Warfare will host coffee receptions and lunches to provide military end users, programme managers, vendors and research agencies over 3 and a half hours of networking during the conference.
Date: Dec 6 2017 – Dec 7 2017
