C4ISR and Beyond

C4ISR and Beyond is a one-day conference with a single goal in mind; to rally the Defence ecosystem (military, government, industry and academe) in rich dialogue around the dynamic nature of today’s military operations, assessed future trends and Industry’s ability to bridge technological deficits to the benefit of our national defence and security.

The value of this event stems from a curated set of candid keynote and panel discussions, featuring leading voices, that explore the breadth of C4ISR challenges and opportunities as militaries attempt to modernize at pace and scale. The design is highly focused, seeking to educate and inform all defence ecosystem parties, in order to grow both solutioning context and trust for tomorrow.

Why should you attend?

  • Hear how technological advances combine with organizational changes to allow commanders at every level to adapt to the changing character of warfare where survivability is challenged by omnipresent ISR – pan domain
  • Hear about C4ISR focus areas, investment plans, opportunities and impediments (culture +) from military commanders and defence functional leadership in their modernization journey
  • Hear how allies and CAF see the C4ISR enterprise enabling support to civil authorities – including in a HADR setting
  • Understand the pace at which Industry is advancing technologies, the challenges in delivering capabilities and services to defence clients, and ways those are being overcome
  • Connect with known and yet to be discovered partners and practitioners in capability delivery – and find new forms of collaboration that see capabilities and results delivered across the force
