  • (1888PressRelease) July 05, 2019 - The Airborne ISR conference, taking place in London on the 23rd-24th October 2019, will bring together international military speakers and industry-leading organizations to explore how Airborne ISR capabilities can be transformed to effectively ensure information and decision dominance in the battlefield.

    Since the release of the brochure, SMi Group are delighted to welcome new expert speakers to this year’s line-up:

    Lieutenant Colonel Romain Desjars-de-keranroue, Commander Drone Squadron 1/33 Belfort, French Air Force will be presenting on ‘French Air Force’s approach to unmanned ISR, and the Reaper drone’.

    The 2019 event will explore in detail the challenges and recent developments in increasing Airborne ISR capabilities, as new 5th generation platforms and infrastructures are adopted to operate in high-threat environments.

    The Airborne ISR community recognises the importance of data dissemination technology as key to exploiting the ever-increasing volume of reconnaissance and surveillance information collected. This enables the military to adapt to evolving threats and utilise valuable information that could mean the difference between mission success and failure.

    Delegates will have the opportunity to hear key insights on platform updates from host nation and international speakers, as well as data dissemination developments from 15+ senior experts, and the benefit of having over 5 hours of dedicated networking at the event.
