Top Four Reasons to Attend Network Centric Warfare 2020 in Rome


SMi Group share top reasons to attend Network Centric Warfare next February, the only conference singularly focused on battlefield network technology.

Investments in defence communication systems have increased significantly over the last decade. This year, the U.S. Department of Defense requested funds worth USD 236.7 billion for weapon systems acquisitions, out of which, roughly 4% (USD 10 billion) was for command, control, and communication systems. As a result, the global battlefield network market is anticipated to grow in the upcoming years.

With this in mind, SMi Group are pleased to host the 4th Annual Network Centric Warfare Conference, which will convene in Rome on the 3rd – 4th February 2020. As the only event singularly focused on battlefield network technology, this highly anticipated meeting is designed to enable programme managers, military professionals and industry experts to discuss and explore the latest developments, technology and opportunities across the world.
