Why you should attend this year's Symposium:

This educational symposium will bring together senior Intelligence officials, military leaders, academia, and solution providers to ensure ISR resources are being utilized as effectively and efficiently as possible in support of mission success.

With many of the ISR platforms currently used across the DoD becoming obsolete for future mission requirements, the US ISR enterprise needs to develop systems capable of meeting the challenges of a near-peer fight. Advances in enemy area denial capabilities hinder the effectiveness of current intelligence collection methods used by US Forces across the globe and create gaps in commanders’ knowledge of the enemy. Emerging technologies, such as AI and machine learning, will enable platforms and systems to collect in previously denies areas and rapidly process and disseminate it to the warfighter.

This symposium will feature senior level discussions about advances in modern technology to help collect actionable intelligence better support the Commanders and the Warfighters. With the global threat environment continuing to evolve the need for clear and actionable intelligence collection only continues to grow. This symposium will allow for open and honest dialogue to solve the nation’s most difficult challenges surrounding the efficiency of ISR capabilities.
