Conference Documentation: Mobile Deployable Communications

Returning for its 8th year the 2015 Mobile Deployable Communications Conference will address the key topics of CIS networks and tactical communications, C4ISR standardisation, interoperability across the global armed forces, operational experiences and future technologies. The role of the communications systems has evolved hugely in the past 15 years and the issue of delivering the right capability not simply delivering capability right is essential.

Military units are now relying on communication networks to relay information with sound, images, video. All of the military communication networks have to be secure, meaning that no interception is possible thus militating against reduced operational integrity.

Contemporary military operations, peacekeeping and stabilization missions require from the armed forces to take actions in unknown and very often distant areas. This year the conference will address the communication equipment used by global armed forces when deployed, illustrating that the practical elements are just as significant as the technology which supports deployed soldiers.

Here is what past delegates have said about SMi's Mobile Deployable Communications conference:

""Great discussions & briefs. It was interesting to get the different perspectives & lessons learned from key speakers from industry & national militaries. Good exchange of information on deployable comms & CIS networks.""

US Army

""Excellent organisation and relevance of presentations” NATO ""This conference provided me with some useful information and proved to be an excellent professional experience""

Royal Marines

""A very interesting & reliable conference. The event was inspiring & gave me many ideas which I hope will help me in my future work.""
