DSI to Lead Discussions on Military Tactical Communications with Senior Leaders in Military, Government, and Industry in Alexandria, VA

Defense Strategies Institute announces their Military Tactical Communications Summit that will bring together stakeholders across Military, Government, Academic, and Industry in a Town Hall forum benefiting the Wounded Warrior Project.

Washington, DC, August 05, 2013 --(PR.com)-- 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.

DSI’s upcoming Summit recognizes that in a field such as tactical communications, where there are multiple agents acting in tandem, it is extremely important that all involved are working towards a cohesive and holistic approach. “While the field has seen an immense amount of ebbing and flowing, we believe that truly great advancements are on the horizon and this is why our Senior Partners decided to lend our expertise towards creating a forum that can bring together stakeholders across the continuum of the community,” Ms. Monica Mckenzie, Senior Partner from DSI stated.

Some key highlight sessions will include briefings from:

- Dr. Ronald Jost, DASD, C3 & Cyber, DoD on “Understanding the Entire Network: Integrating the Core to the Tactical Edge”
- Dr. John Zangardi, DASN, C4, IO, & Space addressing "Navy’s Space Activities in Support of Forward and Geographically-Dispersed Operations"
- COL Mark Elliott, USA, Director, HQ G 3/5/7 LandWarNet/ Mission Command “Delivering the Network to the Tactical Edge: Expectations for NIE 14.1 and Beyond”
- Col Peter Reddy, USMC, PM MC3, MCSC discussing the current demands for tactical comms in the Marine Corps
- Dr. Wayne Phoel, PM, STO, DARPA giving a review on DARPA’s “Advanced Research in Communications, Networks, and Electronic Warfare for the Tactical Edge”

Recognizing the great sacrifice that our men and women of the Armed Services have endured, the summit will benefit the non profit 501c3 Wounded Warrior Project through the direct charitable donations of Defense Strategies Institute.

The forum is open to the public, however seating is limited.
