Through a team of in house journalists and expansive, global network of dedicated correspondents Digital Battlespace covers the widest possible range of issues of concern to the C4ISTAR practitioners covering everything from sensor development to network generation through concepts of operation to procurement practices.
There is a groundswell in today's defense and intelligence operations for advance systems and software that address the growing need for enhanced real-time situational awareness in C4ISTAR and similar applications.
The TDP Programme will also use a number of other suppliers, some of which have already been selected, including the supply of flight control computing from BAE Systems Australia, one of the few non UK developments expected in the programme and support from BAE Systems Integrated System Technologies (INSYTE) with C4ISTAR related work.

The conference provides a forum for attendees from the defense and intelligence communities participating in net centric warfare programs such as complex C4ISTAR (command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition and reconnaissance) systems to learn how to address their unrelenting need to manage massive amounts of data culled from multiple sources (data fusion).
In the next 5-8 years, parts of Europe, Asia and the Middle East are projected to witness a shift in trend, as these countries will try to reduce the capability gap existent with their land-based C4ISTAR.
The next in this series, "Achieving Real-Time Multi-INT Data Fusion for Geospatial Intelligence Applications," provides a forum for attendees from the defense and intelligence communities participating in net centric warfare programs such as complex C4ISTAR (command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition and reconnaissance) systems to learn how to address their unrelenting need to manage massive amounts of data culled from multiple sources.
The following segments are covered in the research: manned platforms and unmanned platforms with sub-segments covering C4ISTAR, and training and simulation.
