Delivering Capability for Machine-Speed Warfare

'Beyond current readiness concerns, we are at an inflection point where we can no longer afford to defer modernizing our capabilities and developing new ones without eroding competitive advantages of our technology and weapon system' - Gen James McConville, Vice Chief of Staff, US Army


Key NATO nations are prioritising disruptive innovation and increasing budgets for data management and digital technologies to transform ISR; C2; the manned/unmanned/autonomous mix on land, at sea, in the air and in space; and enable Synthetic Environments to train for multi-domain operations. 

In response to this, and the huge success of last year's conference the world leading Disruptive Technology for Defence Transformation Conference will return to London 24-26 September, bringing together 200-250 senior military leaders, government officials, tech and defence industry, research, War and Staff colleges and academia.

This breadth of attendance, and the personal interventions of the UK Vice Chief of Defence Staff, Commander Joint Forces Command and many very senior national military and NATO leaders, underlines the developing pace and significance of how Digital Age technology and method are fundamentally reshaping Defence and Security capability and operations.

This year's focus is to build on the discussions of last year, examining how the application of Digital Age technology transforms the delivery of 'full spectrum effects': aligning new military hard power with the whole range of soft power including cyber and social media; moving on to establish how acquisition structures and processes can (and must) be adapted to ensure that we are able to keep pace with industry's progression.

We had to stop registration early for last year's conference due to reaching maximum capacity. This year, we have allowed more space, expecting 250 attendees, but advise booking early to avoid disappointment. Roundtable discussions are also limited in space - find out more by downloading the agenda below.

Benefits for the Military Community

  • Develop concepts of operation and establish requirements for the future operating system
  • Accelerate decision-making and enhance fully scalable C2 combat management through AI and big data analysis
  • Transform ISR at the joint and DOD levels through data collection, fusion, analysis, and visualisation
  • Integrate a manned and unmanned mix of capability for the tri-services
  • Enhance training for the future warfighter by establishing a single synthetic training environment and exploiting AR/VR

Benefits for the Technology Industry

  • Present your solutions to decision-makers, who are shortening their procurement cycles and accelerating integration of technologies from traditional and commercial solution providers
  • Gain first-hand insights into near, mid, and long-term development plans of NATO militaries to align your systems to capability requirements and secure future partnerships
  • Learn about how your organisation can benefit from defence innovation initiatives, focusing on military exploitation of SME and start-up technologies
  • Be the first to showcase your C4ISR and RAS solutions to Armed Forces' thought leaders, as they finalise requirements for the future Joint Force
  • Enhance your understanding of current experimentation, trialling, and R&D to inform budgetary decisions and develop winning business proposals
