As militaries continue to operate in increasingly complex and asymmetrical environments, effective communications and system interoperability has become more critical to ensure forces remain agile and versatile.

Network Centric Warfare 2018 will provide a platform to address challenges and issues surrounding the demand for modernisation and digitisation of information, the growing need for interoperability within communication systems, and procurement for technological advancements of military assets.

In addition, the event will provide updates to the network-centric programs, including the UK's BATCIS-MORPHEUS and Italy's FORZA NEC.

With aims of providing delegates with the latest updates and insights on this significant topic, this year's event will showcase:

• A dedicated focus on the interaction between land and air units within network enabled operations
• Sessions from the British Army BATCIS programme, Italian Army, Italian Navy, US Army Europe, NATO, and other leading experts on the latest technological developments within the network enabled domain
• Essential briefings on the digitisation of battlespace through proliferation of network enabled systems
• Meet and network with military and industry decision makers in communication system interoperability
• Explore how digital fires within joint operations will revolutionise military resource capability

The high-level speaker line-up will deliberate how various NEC programmes can impact operational effectiveness and help optimise the future of tactical warfare. Featured speakers and experts include the Italian Army, Italian Navy, UK Ministry of Defence, DISA Europe, US Army Europe, NATO Shape, Royal Netherlands Air Force, DSTL and many more.
