Conference Day One

Tuesday, September 24th, 2019


4:20 PM INDUSTRY INNOVATORS PANEL: EXPANDING PARTNERSHIPS FOR A DISRUPTIVE FUTURE

Future ISR capability will be shaped in no small part by start ups, SMEs and other non-traditional defence companies. Recognising that reality, this panel will provide a platform for those companies to explain how
they can contribute to the most significant challenges facing ISR in the maritime domain. A number of 
S&T military panellists will be asked to weigh in with thoughts on how those solutions might be embedded as 
a component of future capability.

Conference Day Two

Wednesday, September 25th, 2019


10:40 AM SENIOR LEADERS Q&A: HOW WILL THE ISR ENTERPRISE ADAPT TO SUPPORT NATO’S GLOBAL MARITIME SECURITY?

  • 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?

11:50 AM INDUSTRY LEADERS PANEL: HOW DO WE DEFINE THE JOINT REQUIREMENT FOR ISR, AND WHERE ARE THE OPPORTUNITIES FOR PARTNERSHIP?

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?
