A look at last year's ISR & C2 Battle Management USA conference

In 2017 and 2018, the ISR & C2 Battle Management USA conference charted the development of multi-domain command and control as a transformative concept for the US and its Five Eyes Partners. It gathered senior military leaders, government officials and the defence industry to help advance the ISR enterprise and ensure the integrity of C2 even when information superiority is challenge or denied.
