Leading Navy Conference Maritime Information Warfare, Now Open for Registration

SMi Group Reports (2017.07.13, London, UK): Registration Now Open for Maritime Information Warfare 2017

LONDON, SELECT, UNITED KINGDOM, July 17, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ -- SMi is pleased to announce that registration is now open for the highly anticipated Maritime Information Warfare conference, taking place in London on the 6th and 7th December 2017.

This exclusive military event will focus on the growing need for navies to develop their information exploitation capabilities. As navies must now achieve strategic superiority in both conventional and asymmetrical conflict environments, knowledge is the new ‘king of the battlefield’. The utilization of real-time data is key to ensuring mission success.

2017 will look at the platforms used for acquiring data; ranging from open source intelligence to more traditional ISR systems, the ways in which information is examined through big data analytics and ground-breaking machine learning before ultimately to considering how this effects decision making in the field. It also captures the current movement within the maritime domain – running off the back of the Royal Navy’s ‘Information Warrior’, which is looking to expand the Royal Navies information exploitation capabilities to achieve operational superiority at sea.

Covering the latest advances from Navies, Coast Guards and Maritime Agencies relating to: Information Exploitation, Artificial Intelligence, Autonomous Systems, Cyber Security, ISR, C4I, Big data, Open Source Intelligence Gathering and more.

With presentations from an unrivalled military and industry speaker line-up, including Mr Stephen Rowe, Principal Engineer, Platform Systems Division from Dstl, presenting on: ‘An Overview of the Open Architecture Combat System (OACS) and its Role in Enabling AI Applications, Such as STARTLE, Within Operation Information Warrior’, covering:

• The importance of acquiring a range of naval applications and how to overcome disjointed application systems
• Optimising Combat Systems through advanced systems architecture
• Benefits of developing enabling architectural technology to deploy an increasingly varied range of naval applications from a myriad of providers
• Ensuring that future platforms adopt an open source architecture to safeguard future interoperability of naval programmes

Steve has spent most of his career in maritime research working for the UK Ministry of Defence. This has covered a wide sphere including electro-mechanical design, software intensive systems, sea trials, C2 and interoperability. In recent years, he has concentrated on the application of open systems to maritime combat system architectures, with emphasis on application integration.

There is a £300 early bird booking discount available until 31st August. To register or for more information, visit: http://www.maritimeinfowarfare.com
