ABOUT MILCOM 2017
Now in its 36th year, MILCOM continues to be the premier international conference for military communications.
At MILCOM, global military communications professionals face command, control, communications, computing, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) challenges head on. They look at them from every angle and discuss them from end to end – research and development through future needs. The conference allows industry the opportunity to hear and understand the requirements, pace of change and state of play in a variety of C4ISR markets serving the military, federal agencies and multinational entities.
The MILCOM 2017 theme, Military Communications and Innovation: Priorities for the Modern Warfight, captures the importance of attending this event. The competing priorities of speed, security and cost must be addressed to ensure success in the cyber domain. The challenges are many; accelerating innovation to the warfighter is a key enabler to meeting our nation’s toughest mission requirements.
Join military and industry communications professionals in this evolving conversation October 23-25 at the Baltimore Convention Center in Maryland. MILCOM features outstanding technical presentations, discussions and tutorials, as well as a nearly 30,000 square foot exhibit hall. Experts in C4I and cyber issues as well as science and technology developments will lead more than 200 unclassified and restricted sessions.
