- As the operating environment becomes increasingly multi-domain, how does our C2ISR framework need to adapt, and how can it do so ‘at the speed of relevance’?
- How do we transition from multi-domain at an individual service level to multi-domain at the joint level? What are the opportunities for integration, and what are the barriers?
- Intelligence will be perhaps the first branch of defence to truly benefit from the application of advanced technologies, including AI and machine learning. How will those technologies impact the ways in which we fuse and exploit data, and how can indsutry help to speed up their introduction?
- How do we ensure that the airborne ISR platform plays the most effective possible role within the future threat environment, and how will unmanned capability support its contribution to situational awareness and C2?
