Warfighting in an IoT Age

Delivering on the promise, defeating the threats

The world is becoming increasingly complex, data is growing at an alarming rate, our adversaries are leveraging this explosion of data to “hide in the open”. IoT sensors are being used to measure everything from facilities, to equipment on the battlefield. Threats evolve rapidly as the information environment becomes a tool for adversaries. New technologies like Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning hold great promise, but organizations are challenged with how to leverage the latest technology to gain an analytic advantage. GIS Technology can help deliver on the promise, by connecting advance analytic technologies with proven tools and user experiences for data management, visualization and exploration. GIS helps organizations understand and counter the threats by connecting the real-world and virtual information environment.

Come to the Defense and Intelligence Forum @ Esri UC to see the latest advances in geographic information system (GIS) technology, and learn how GIS is being applied by Defense and Intelligence professionals around the globe. Take advantage of this opportunity to meet them, share their experiences, and network with peers working on the same challenges. Whether you are an executive, commander, senior analyst, or GIS Manager the Summit will increase your awareness of the latest advancements in ArcGIS and the great work being done throughout the community to advance your craft.
