SMi Reports: Registration is now open for the Airborne ISR conference, returning to London on 23-24 October for its fifth year running.
In the complex and ever-changing strategic landscape, the demand for increased situational awareness continues to grow. As a decisive and indispensable tool, air-based ISTAR is increasingly relied upon to deliver tactical data and intelligence for commanders, as well as deliver effective strategic deterrence.
The role of ISR in national defence has undergone a remarkable expansion lately, with the UK recently delivering the P-8 Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft and announcing future acquisition of the E-7 Wedgetail. For nations such as the US and Australia, ISR continues to be an investment priority and networking these capabilities is a crucial competence.
With this in mind, SMi Group are pleased to host the 5th annual Airborne ISR conference, taking place on the 23th and 24th October 2019 in London, UK. The event will cover a range of crucial topics involving manned and unmanned platforms, data management and dissemination tools, as well as the extraordinary capabilities of the systems.
The 2019 agenda features a series of presentations by experts who will explore the requirements of the contemporary operational environment and the latest technological developments in research and industry that are enhancing ISTAR.
Key senior experts confirmed to speak at the 2019 conference include:
• Major General Jörg Lebert, Commander Airborne Early Warning & Control Force, NATO
• Brigadier General Volker Samanns, General Manager NATO Airborne Ground Surveillance Management Agency, NATO
• Colonel Andrew Clark, Commander 9th Reconnaissance Wing, United States Air Force
• Colonel Brendan Cook, Commander 14 Wing (Designated), Royal Canadian Air Force

This year’s delegates will have the chance to explore how nations are engaging with one-another to disseminate and analyse information, the latest developments from leading international programmes from maritime and land domains, how nations are adopting and adapting technology to gain greater intelligence resolution, and secure information and decision dominance.
