As we have seen over the preceding two days of the conference, new and disruptive technologies have a vital role to play in enabling modern amphibious forces meet the A2AD threat; improve their C2/ISR capabilities and revolutionise their provision of training.
A perennial challenge for the modern force, however, is gaining access to these technologies – and learning how new technologies can be applied to the battlefield of tomorrow. The sessions in the morning will provide innovative SMEs with the opportunity to present their solutions to a panel of military decision-makers and experts.
The afternoon will be devoted to structured roundtable discussions focused on different areas of amphibious capability, each led by a subject matter expert or capability holder. These sessions will build upon lessons learned from the first two days of the conference, as well as the insight gained from the innovation morning to dig deep into the capabilities required for the Future Commando Force. Audience members will have the opportunity to select a roundtable of their choice ahead of time, to ensure they derive the maximum possible benefit from the afternoon.
