With support from the Polish Armed Forces, the 13th annual Mobile Deployable Communications conference returns to Warsaw in January 2020. Featuring exclusive briefings from key regional partners and their international allies, the conference explores battlefield communications systems in the Central and Eastern European operational environment and their role in maximising operational effectiveness.


Effective communication on the battlefield is becoming increasingly vital as militaries seek to gain, maintain and exploit the information advantage in a rapidly changing battlespace. To prepare for future engagements, militaries must especially focus on the resilience and protection of communications in degraded environments as near-peer adversaries are utilising ever more complex electronic warfare technologies.


This annual conference will bring together 100+ international delegates, including leading program managers, strategic decision-makers, industry experts and thought leaders from CEE and further afield, to explore the latest developments in communications technology and the challenges for both solution providers and end users.


Key Focuses Include:

  • Central and Eastern European (CEE) operational environment

  • Interoperability of communications equipment between allied militaries

  • Procurement, research and development of the latest communications technology

  • Resilience and security of tactical communications systems, such as anti-jamming technology

Maritime ISR Global 2019 will welcome 150 senior leaders from the UK, Australia, Sweden, Germany, NATO and many others to set a roadmap for delivering persistent maritime ISR. With Europe’s defence narrative focused on the threat of peer conflict in the land environment, the Black Sea serves as a reminder that the ability to operate at sea is just as intrinsic to NATO’s strategic priorities. As the uptick in non-NATO activity continues, its waters have become an important case study for delivering a global joint ISR capability – one that can overcome an increased operational tempo to sustain a high-level of decision support to the war fighter.
