New Event to Examine Network-Centric Warfare and Steps Needed to Achieve Operational Success

(VIENNA, VA., January 14, 2016)- 1105 Public Sector Media Group and technical partner Booz Allen Hamilton are pleased to announce a new event to be held on February 16, ‘Network-Centric Warfare: Next Steps Toward Achieving The Vision’.  The event will be co-located with WEST 2016—co-sponsored by AFCEA International and the U.S. Naval Institute.

Today’s battlespaces—sea, air, land, and cyberspace—are networked like never before, and information superiority is essential to military success. However, the evolution towards truly network-centric warfare has been slowed by technical and cultural challenges. This event, produced by Defense Systems, FCW and technical partner Booz Allen Hamilton, will bring together Department of Defense (DOD) leaders and experts including keynote Rear Admiral David H. Lewis, Commander, Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR), U.S. Navy, to discuss the current vision of network-centric warfare and steps the Department and Navy/Marine Corps can take to achieve it.

"The concept of network-centric warfare is more complex than ever, as DOD seeks to integrate cyberspace and the electromagnetic spectrum with the traditional battle domains of land, air, sea and space," said Kevin McCaney, Editor-in-Chief, Defense Systems. "At this event, DOD leaders and experts will discuss how the department can overcome the technological hurdles and finally realize the full vision of network-centric warfare."

"This event will provide a dynamic forum in which leaders from the Navy and Marine Corps can discuss strategies for overcoming both the technological and cultural challenges to achieving and capitalizing on the virtues of network-centric warfare in order to have secure and seamless C4ISR systems for mission success," said Steve Soules, Executive Vice President and Lead, Navy/Marine Corps C4ISR, Defense & Intelligence Group, Booz Allen Hamilton.
