Leonardo announced as Gold Sponsor, and Bittium announced as newly confirmed sponsor of Network Centric Warfare 2019


SMi Group is pleased to announce Leonardo as the Gold Sponsor for next year’s Network Centric Warfare conference, in addition to Bittium, who have also been recently confirmed to sponsor the event.

Next year’s conference is returning to Rome, Italy on the 4th and 5th February 2019 (http://www.netcentric-warfare.com/armada), to host an international gathering of military and industry experts with the aim of providing delegates with comprehensive coverage of Network Centric Warfare and its future capabilities.

Industry leader Leonardo is the prime contractor, system integrator and systems authority for the architectural requirements for the Italian Forza NEC programme, one of the primary focuses of the conference, as high-ranking Italian Army officials are set to speak and present on the topic.

The project is managed by the Italian Defence Administration and Italian industries with the aim of modernising the Italian Armed Forces, whose senior military responsible for NEC will be speaking and presenting at next year’s event.

As new risks, and security and defence policies from NATO and the EU constantly emerge, there is a continuous demand for the improvement of military capabilities.*

This operation is supported by a substantial commitment to the development of net-centric capabilities, like Italy’s FORZA, UK’s Morpheus, and Germany’s MoTaKo NEC programmes, which will all be explored in-depth by senior military officials at Network Centric Warfare 2019.

Featured Experts presenting on NEC Programmes:

  • Chief of 6th Division C4I and Chief Information Officer, Italian Army
  • Branch Head of Digitisation of Land-Based Operations, German Army Headquarters
  • Deputy Head BATCIS, Joint Forces Command, UK MoD

The two-day conference will provide attendees with the latest updates in Network Centric Warfare, including joint interoperability, Network Centric Warfare in the operational sphere, and more. It will also provide exclusive networking opportunities with high-ranking military experts, industry leaders, and sponsors including Bittium, Leonardo, and Rajant.
