EXPLOITING TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION TO RETAIN MILITARY ADVANTAGE 

The accelerating speed of technological development is profoundly changing the nature of warfare as we know it. The modern era is a competition: the winners will be those states and armed forces able to think creatively, invest thoughtfully, and act decisively to build a new competitive edge faster, better and more affordably than their adversaries. To gain advantage, the military must look to adopt civilian/commercial innovation models, integrating the likes of artifical intelligence, additive manufacturing and predictive analytics to enhance capability.

Disruptive Technology for Defence Transformation 2018 returns to London on the 24-25th September to explore the disruptive technologies that will shape the future joint force of 2035 and beyond. Join us as we bring together leaders in the defence and technology sectors to explore how the top five major capability areas can be transformed by combinations of data, processing, connectivity, robotics, autonomy, and machine learning. Network with senior leaders in the armed forces, large technology solution providers, SMEs, research analysts and academia, and gain an exclusive look into the future of modern warfare.
