John B. Munoz Atkinson, Director

  • How will the focus of the maritime ISR project evolve as NATO seeks readiness for sustained combat operations at sea? What does this mean in terms of capability, doctrine and training? 
  • The challenges of adopting an end-to-end approach to ISR. Ensuring that existing ISR forces are equipped to move beyond intelligence gathering and towards supporting the delivery of kinetic effect
  • Overcoming limitations to interoperability in a maritime context. How can individual assets be used to force multiply the NATO force without compromising on the integrity of mission-critical data?

12:20 pm - 12:50 pm LEONARDO COMPANY AND HELICOPTERS AS A MARITIME ISR DELIVER PLATFORM

Louis Wilson-Chalon

Helicopters Division
Leonardo

Delivering integration as a designed-for concept for future ISR forces requires partnerships across industry.
Systems integrators are uniquely placed to develop those partnerships, and must demonstrate, both to
their defence customers and their industry colleagues, a vision for a truly multi-domain ISR project. This 
panel will invite those integrators to address questions including:
  • How should the requirement for joint maritime ISR be defined and designed?
  • What opportunities are there for non-conventional solution-providers to provide critical operational
  • capability?
  • How can conventional limitations to integration across platform and across domain be overcome?
