Defense Strategies Institute to Convene Senior Leaders from the U.S. Military, DoD, Industry and Academia to Discuss and Debate Tactical Communications Operations

Defense Strategies Institute will host its upcoming Military Tactical Communications Summit September 9 -10, 2014 in Alexandria, VA. Today’s U.S. military services and defense agencies must accelerate the development and fielding of initiatives focused on a networked approach to communications at the tactical edge. While the technical enablers for this concept are rapidly maturing, the operational challenges are quickly coming to the forefront.

Washington, DC, July 10, 2014 --( 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. To this end identifying the parts of the communications process that are the most suitable to maximize efficiency and effectiveness is paramount.

“The Summit is designed to offer a full spectrum viewpoint towards tactical comms. Rather than focus purely on satellites, or radios, or antennas, we have created a Summit that will bring together a variety of stakeholders in order to build out two days of discussion and debates that tackle many of the areas involved in enhancing effective and efficient tactical communications,” stated Monica Mckenzie, Senior Partner, Defense Strategies Institute.

“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,” Lisa Madison, Director of Communications, DSI, stated.

Some of the subject matter that will be addressed include:
1.JIE at the tactical edge

4.C2 OTM
5.Spectrum management/ shared spectrum access
6.Mobile technologies for tactical edge users
