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.

Rajeev Kapur 2015 FOLIO Honoree

Rajeev Kapur Top 100 Honoree - Up-and-Coming Trailblazers 2015 - Folio Magazine

Rajeev Kapur has been making big moves at 1105 Media since taking over in November 2014. In a surprise deal, he sold off the company’s education tech events to bolster the balance sheet. But within a few months, 1105 launched another event for 2016 and consolidated its marketing services under a new division, the 05 Group. Kapur replaced outgoing CEO Neal Vitale and was hired partly because he was an industry outsider. He was previously CEO of Sonic Emotion, a developer of 3D sound technology.
