07 Jun 17. DSEI People & Skills Day – Call for Exhibitor Participation.
In addition to DSEI’s core focus on capability and procurement, the fourth day of the event (Friday 15 September) will become an engaging platform for attendees to address topics pertaining to personnel, skills and STEM development across the defence & security sector. People & Skills Day will focus on Opportunity, Development, Investment and Integration.
Expert Led Discussions
The free to attend Seminar Programme will feature presentations by expert speakers from government and industry, and will include a keynote address by Lt General Richard Nugee CVO CBE, Chief of Defence People, UK MOD. Other speakers include: VAdm Duncan Potts, Director General, Joint Force Development & Defence Academy, RAdm Nils Christian Wang, Commandant Royal Danish Defence College and many more.
Youth STEM Focus
The wide range of roles and career paths available to those studying STEM subjects means that visualising a future career can be difficult. People & Skills Day will bring STEM to life through a bespoke programme of activities across the exhibition floor, designed for students in further and higher education, who have been invited to attend on Day Four. By showcasing advanced engineering and technology and the type career paths available, students will be able to visualise where their STEM qualifications could take them.

06 Jun 17. Electromagnetic Spectrum Operations Summit.
• Delivering EW and Cyber Capabilities for Multi-Domain Operations
• 20 June, 2017 – 21 June, 2017, Alexandria, VA, United States
The 2017 Electromagnetic Spectrum Summit will focus on emerging concepts, technologies and challenges that exist within the ever-growing domain of electromagnetic spectrum operations. As EW warfighting continues to evolve in complexity, it is clear that EW systems must work collaboratively across multi-domains. Management and manipulation of the EMS by the DoD allows our nation to gain tactical, operational, and strategic advantages. As competing nations continue to strengthen and improve their usage and maneuvers with the EMS, the United States must remain superior, which requires significant research and investment in understanding ways to advance Electronic Warfare technology and capabilities for sustained success. The demand for greater access to the spectrum and the crucial importance of defending our nation against Electronic Attacks only increases the awareness and necessity to master the utilization of the EMS.
New Topics For This Year’s Summit
• Maximizing access and enhancing battlefield effectiveness within the electromagnetic spectrum
• Understanding what the convergence of EW and Cyber means for the force
• The importance of becoming more spectrally efficient, flexible, and adaptable in congested and contested electromagnetic environments
• Operational concepts and technologies to advance US dominance of the electromagnetic spectrum
• Current maritime, expeditionary, and airborne electronic warfare strategies and objectives
• Understanding the developing challenges of creating spectrum-dependent technology
• Current activities towards synchronizing cyberspace operations, EQ, and Spectrum Management
• Utilizing the spectrum of available technologies to protect and defend electronic attacks and countermeasures
• Understanding the emerging significance of Cognitive Electronic Warfare in producing countermeasures
• How to address the operational problems of EW across multi-domains
Why Should You Attend the Summit?
As technology progresses and military advancements among developed nations grow, the availability of frequency bands on the EMS becomes limited. As competing nations cultivate and field electronic attacks, this reduces the ability of the DoD to access the spectrum in the most efficient and productive way. Unlike other domains, America is not as dominant in this space as it should be. As war continu
