Washington, DC, August 31, 2012 --( Today’s U.S. military services and defense agencies must accelerate the development and fielding of initiatives focused on the agile approach to modernizing secure, networked, and interoperable tactical communications systems.

While the technical enablers for the concept of communications on-the-move are rapidly maturing, the operational challenges are quickly coming to the forefront. Challenges including waveform and signal processing, security, jamming/anti-jamming techniques along with a vast list of distinct operational requirements for the technologies has challenged military leaders to critically analyze next-steps in moving communication technologies forward.

To this end, identifying the parts of the communications process that are the most suitable to maximize efficency and effectiveness is paramount.

“Almost all stakeholders in this field have a general understanding and working knowledge of the current governance structures and roadmaps moving forward. We feel there is now a need to really look at how are we defining what 'success' will mean for the Warfighter. Our educational and training Summits offer a non-partisan, informal forum where we encourage real, actionable, discussion and debate, and this is a chance for the experts in the field to really role their sleeves up and talk about their unique and shared perspectives with their respective colleagues,” stated Ms. Madison, Director of Communications for DSI. The Summit benefits the non profit 501c3 Wounded Warrior Project through DSI’s personal financial donations to the WWP.
