MAIN CONFERENCE DAY ONE

Wednesday, February 26th, 2020


10:10 AM PANEL DISCUSSION: INTEROPERABILITY WITHIN COMBAT SUPPORT COMMANDS

With the return to preparations for combat against a peer or near-peer threat interoperability has become the main driving force for progress within NATO. In order to successful leverage the combined force of the Alliance it is essential that interoperability is maximised and this will undoubtedly place new strains on combat support commands in order to make sure that these forces are able to perform their roles effectively. Focusing on enhancing interoperability within combat support commands, this panel discussion will discuss:
 
·          The current combat support challenges for multi-national exercises and the lessons learned which must be addressed in order to improve levels of readiness for peer level conflict
·          The technological developments which will have the largest impact on integrating an Alliance wide supply-chain for effective sustainment of a joint force
·          Implications for funding and new procurements if international support networks increase in importance

MAIN CONFERENCE DAY TWO

Thursday, February 27th, 2020


2:00 PM PANEL DISCUSSION: COMBAT SUPPORT CAPABILITY DEVELOPMENT

In order for combat support commands to effectively enable force deployed on operations there will need to be development of their own capabilities alongside those of the operational force. Bridging, land clearance, construction, logistics vehicles and supply chain management will all require modernisation in order to deliver support effectively to future operations and this will be the focus of our next panel discussion. Panellists will cover:
 
·          Areas in which the combat support space is lagging behind the rest of military industry development
·          Key industries which must see development in order for capability gaps being experienced by industry to be addressed
·          Disruptive technologies such as automisation within combat support and an assessment of the roadmap to integrating them effectively
