Mobile Deployable Communications 2021 to Discuss the Importance of Allied Interoperability in Communications Technology

The conference will highlight the importance of allied interoperability by discussing international efforts, such as the Federated Mission Network and the Tactical Edge Networking programme.

London, United Kingdom, November 19, 2020 --( As near-peer adversaries have been developing ever more complex electronic warfare technologies and carrying out exercises to jam allied communications, militaries must develop stronger and more resilient technology in order to withstand these challenges.

With this in mind, Mobile Deployable Communications 2021, taking place online as a virtual event on 27th – 28th January, will highlight the importance of interoperability by discussing international efforts, such as the Federated Mission Network and the Tactical Edge Networking programme.

"We must work to ensure interoperability with allies and integration of the best technological developments from industry," said Brigadier General Bento Soares, Director CIS, Portuguese Army, who will be speaking at the event.

Attendance for military and government personnel will be free, and it’s just £499 for commercial organisations. Register at:
