Counter UAS Technology 2021

We are pleased to announce the latest conference in SMi's portfolio, the Counter UAS Technology USA 2021, taking place 6th – 7th December, Arlington, USA.

As many of our regular speakers are form the US and thanks to their large-scale US military research into Counter UAS, we saw the value in creating a USA focussed event.

With the establishment of the US DoD Joint Counter-Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems Office, (JCO) there is now a drive across the US Armed Forces to have a comprehensive and centralised approach to tackling the ever evolving drone threat facing the nation.

Counter UAS Technology 2021 will showcase the very latest technology in the market to ensure that DoD personnel, equipment and infrastructure are protected from the proliferation of drones.

Speakers will feature from leading US DoD agencies, international defence organizations and leading industry providers.



Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance Technology

With rapid technological advances changing the way maritime forces need to utilise and manage ISR capabilities across domains, Maritime and Littoral Reconnaissance and Surveillance systems and platforms have become a critical component of naval capability.

SMi Group are delighted to announce the return of the 7th Annual Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance Technology Conference, taking place on the 2nd and 3rd February 2022. This year, with the geographical shift comes a subtle strategic one, providing a renewed focus on some of the strategic threats and technological challenges facing naval and joint forces from across the world.
Platforms and topics discussed include: Space based ISR, Airborne Platforms & Operations, C4ISTAR, Unmanned Maritime Systems, Hydrographic platforms and many more…

As the only Maritime ISR event with a specific focus on Space-Based Domain Awareness, Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance Technology 2022 follows six very successful predecessors. With the previous events taking place in Rome, the event has brought forward a discussion on the growing need for more comprehensive and sophisticated Joint Maritime ISR capabilities in the Mediterranean and beyond, particularly following the Migrant Crisis that remains.



Border Security Conference

With COVID-19 spreading across the globe, the security and integrity of a nation’s borders has rarely been more important than now. Security protocols have been thrust into the global spotlight as border professionals have had to adapt and change their usual approaches while ensuring that their effectiveness is not compromised; a successful response has frequently hinged on the ability of a nation to prevent infected individuals from entering the country.

Now in its fifteenth year, the Border Security Conference has established itself as a market leader in this sector and will return in February 2022, London, UK to meet these issues head-on. The conference will bring together border forces, airport and port personnel, industry leaders and key international agencies. Border Security 2022 will provide an excellent opportunity to meet with key industry stakeholders and to hear from some of the world’s leading voices.

Tune into the two-day conference and benefit from insights delivered by first-class professionals, scientists, border force officers, and industry figures.
