2017 Autonomous Networking Technology Symposium

AFCEA Welcome ANT 2017

The Erie Canal Chapter (NY) of the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA) is proud to announce the Autonomous Networking Technology Symposium to be held on June 13-14, 2017 in Utica, New York. Autonomous networking, contingent upon Electromagnetic Spectrum Superiority, opens the door to a wide range of new machine-to-machine (M2M) and manned/unmanned teaming (MUM-T) capabilities. Resiliency of these capabilities depends upon spectrum maneuverability, rapidly deployable connectivity, adaptable information services, and timely situational awareness. This symposium will focus on current state-of-the-art technology developments and emerging joint/coalition needs in support of Multi-Domain Operations. The Air Force Research Laboratory Information Directorate (AFRL/RI) is participating along with invited stakeholders from:
— The Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD)
— The Defense Advanced Projects Research Agency (DARPA)
— National Spectrum Consortium (NSC)
— The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC)
— Air Combat Command (ACC)
— Air Mobility Command (AMC)
— Global Strike Command (AFGSC)
— The Naval Research Laboratory (NRL)
— Office of Naval Research (ONR)
— Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR)
— The Army Research Laboratory (ARL)
— The Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center (CERDEC)
— Other relevant consortia
