As the Digital Age ushers in a wave of new technologies that can provide great strides forward in overall capability, it also brings a degree of pressure to adopt the right technologies and do so as rapidly as possible so as to remain competitive. Disruptive Technologies have the potential to transform the nature of operations but require a change in culture in some cases in order to integrate them most effectively. This panel discussion will discuss how the world of multi-role vessels will approach these opportunities and challenges..


Panellists will discuss:

·        What role will unmanned platforms play in providing real-time data to enhance ISR capabilities and overall situational awareness?

·        How can we more effectively secure data and ensure that networks are resilient enough in a time where information security is rapidly growing in importance?

·        Maritime operations will require an ever increasing ability to collect and act on sensor data to build the tactical picture for operations; how can navies enhance threat detection and accelerate decision-making?
