February 13-14, 2018  | Mary M. Gates Learning Center, Alexandria, VA

The 6th Annual Automated ISR and Battle Management Symposium encourages members of the DoD, Intelligence Community, military services, and critical organizations to come together to discuss solutions and techniques to exploit ISR data in support of the warfighter. Due to the high volume of data being generated, operators have turned their focus towards increased ISR capabilities and expedited efficiency in PED to ensure timely and accurate intelligence. This program will facilitate discussions aimed at enhancing ISR capabilities and emphasizing the significance of battle management systems to fight and win in a multi-domain environment.

Operating Guidance For Government Attendees:

DSI’s Symposium directly supports DoD, IC, DHS, and Government priorities by providing a conduit for officials to efficiently reach audiences outside of their respective offices that directly impact their department’s mission success, at no charge to the government, and in an efficient expenditure of time.

DSI’s Symposium will provide a forum to address and improve internal and external initiatives, meet with and hear from partner organizations, disseminate vital capability requirements to industry, increase visibility within the larger community, and generally support their mission.

The Symposium is open and complimentary to all DoD and Federal employees and is considered an educational and training forum

(Industry and academia members are charged a fee for admission)
