                Why you should attend this year’s Symposium:

                  DSI’s 10th Annual Automated ISR and Battle Management Summit will provide the DoD, Military Services, Intelligence Community, Industry, and Academia the opportunity to discuss ways to modernize ISR systems for the future fight. This year’s Symposium will explore the advancement and augmentation of ISR capabilities to collect and process intelligence at speed to deliver battlespace awareness to the warfighter for greater command and control.

                  As the threats from adversaries grows, the US must develop and maintain ISR platforms that can meet the mission challenges of a near-peer fight. Attendees at the event will have the unique opportunity to discuss how to advance the warfighter’s ability to collect intelligence in enemy denied areas, exploit intelligence at speed, and deliver actionable insights to commanders and warfighters at the edge. This year’s panel will discuss the augmentation and automation of ISR platforms with the integration of emerging technologies such as AI and ML to harness the power of unmanned vehicles.

                  Join us at the 2022 Automated ISR Symposium to learn and discuss the opportunities and challenges facing the ISR community as the IC, DoD, industry, academia, and military services work together to integrate and modernize intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance capabilities across the services and agencies.

                  DSI’s team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Symposiums’ content and focus areas, and we will assemble the most respected minds in ISR as well as key-policy makers across military and civilian offices. Our non-partisan approach allows us to reach across all services and organizations to bring together a truly holistic group of decision makers and solution providers
