8th Military Tactical Communications Summit

The 2019 Military Tactical Communications Summit will focus on the advancement of communication capabilities for the modern warfighter. The event will discuss DoD efforts to improve the reliability, security, and scalability of key expeditionary networks. It will bring together speakers from the DoD, industry, and academia to discuss the challenges of delivering uninterrupted access to information to forward-deployed warfighters in both austere and hostile operating environments.


Speakers will address the overarching policies, acquisition priorities, technological advancements and end-user perspectives regarding military tactical communications and networking capabilities. Attendees will have the unique opportunity to speak with decision-makers about key network modernization efforts and initiatives towards ensuring continuous communications for the warfighter.


In addition to our senior level plenary sessions, this event will feature two panels which will examine innovative themes disrupting the C4ISR community. The first panel on “Achieving Army Tactical Network Multi-Path Diversity” will discuss leveraging alternate communication pathways when faced with disconnected intermittent limited situations. The second panel on “Deploying 5G Network Technologies” will bring together representatives from industry, academia and the military for a discussion on how 5G is setting the stage for the digital future and the implications it will have on national defense.
