Maritime Information Warfare 2019

Maritime Information Warfare 2019

SMi reports: Registration is now open for the Maritime Information Warfare conference, commencing in London, UK, this November

Rapid technological advances are changing the way maritime forces utilise and manage information. Achieving operational effectiveness and “Information Advantage” is now more vital than ever to the success of any navy. For this reason, major nations, such as the UK and US, have already established potent cyber formations, such as the US Navy’s dedicated 10th fleet.

With this in mind, SMi Group are pleased to host the 3rd annual Maritime Information Warfare conference, taking place on the 18th and 19th November 2019 in London, UK. The two-day event will focus on the strategies, systems and new technologies set to increase information warfare capabilities, as well as the challenges associated with engaging in information warfare.

Key topics to be discussed include: Artificial Intelligence (AI), Information Exploitation and Big Data, Cyber Security and Defence, Command Control Communication and Computers (C4), Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR), and more.

The focus for the conference will encompass these key themes, as well as building on the Royal Navy's Information Warrior exercises in order to analyse how both military and industry can utilise these capabilities to improve operations.

The newly released brochure with the full agenda and speaker line-up is available to download on the event website at

The agenda features over 16 expert presentations with international representation from the UK, US, Canada, Spain, Portugal, France, Germany and more.

Featured expert speakers for 2019 include:
