SMi Reports: Royal Navy will present on developing effective cyber security standards to maximize use of naval assets at Maritime Information Warfare conference.
Maritime Information Warfare will focus on the growing need for navies to develop their information exploitation capabilities. As navies must now achieve strategic superiority in both conventional and asymmetrical conflict environments, knowledge is the new ‘king of the battlefield’. The utilization of real-time data is key to ensuring mission success – whether operating in asymmetrical or more conventional environments. The conference will look at the platforms used for data collection; ranging from open source data collection to more traditional ISR systems, and the ways in which that data is examined through big data analytics, ultimately to consider how this effects decision making in the field.
It also captures the current movement within the naval domain – running off the back of the Royal Navy’s ‘Information Warrior’, which is looking to expand its fleets data capture and utilize capability to achieve information superiority at sea.
