London, United Kingdom, October 07, 2017 --( SMi Group has released the agenda for its Network Centric Warfare 2018 Conference.

As militaries continue to operate in increasingly complex and asymmetrical environments, effective communications and system interoperability has become more critical to ensure forces remain agile and versatile.

Network Centric Warfare 2018 will provide a platform to address challenges and issues surrounding the demand for modernisation and digitisation of information, the growing need for interoperability within communication systems, and procurement for technological advancements of military assets.

In addition, the event will capture key updates to the network-centric programmes, including the UK’s BATCIS-MORPHEUS programmes and Italy’s FORZA NEC as it moves to production stage in 2018.

With aims of providing delegates with the latest updates and insights on this significant topic, this year's event will showcase:

A dedicated focus on the interaction between land and air units within network enabled operations
Sessions from the British Army BATCIS programme, Italian Army, Italian Navy, US Army Europe, NATO, and other leading experts on the latest technological developments within the network enabled domain
Essential briefings on the digitisation of battlespace through proliferation of network enabled systems
Meet and network with military and industry decision makers in communication system interoperability
Explore how digital fires within joint operations will revolutionise military resource capability

This is just a snapshot of what you can expect at Network Centric Warfare 2018. Check out the website for more information.
