Snapshot of his speaker interview:

Q: As an educator at the US Naval War College, what are your priorities for ensuring that the next generation of military leaders are conversant with information warfare and cyberspace?

A: “It is important for our students and future leaders to understand how our adversaries and future enemies view information warfare and how they have been employing it for decades across the spectrum of conflict from cooperation to competition below armed conflict to armed conflict.”

Mr Bruno Bender will be presenting on Day One of the conference on ‘Advancing Combat Management and C4I from the Perspective of French Naval Programmes’.

Snapshot of his speaker interview:

Q: As an expert on the system, how is RIFAN enabling the French Navy to maintain the information advantage?

A: "RIFAN is an original solution providing a capacity to manage actively the different contents and flows on board ships with limited bandwidth. The solution is adapted to host and communicate with most C4I solutions adapted to the specific need of modern navies. The program has been improved continuously to take into considerations the lessons learned from past operations and to propose a resilient solution for the units of the French Navy. (e-g. ships up to the aircraft carrier size, maritime patrol aircrafts and special forces)."
