18 Sep 21. SMi’s 23rd Annual Global MilSatCom Confex – day two USA focused expert speakers announced.
SMi Group reports: ahead of the 23rd Annual Global MilSatCom Confex in November 2021, SMi Group announces USA focused expert speakers for day two.
As the world enters a new era of near-peer competition, it is widely accepted dogma that no nation will go to war alone. However, significant problems with C2 interoperability between allies remain; despite sustained efforts to align international communications architectures and improve systems integration, a large amount of work must still be done to guarantee that a multinational coalition can communicate as smoothly and quickly as possible.
Building on its success over the years, SMi Group are delighted to welcome the 23rd Global MilSatCom Conference and Exhibition in London, UK (virtually option available) convening on 2nd to 4th November 2021, with a Disruptive Technology Focus Day on 1st November 2021.

Initiatives like the Integrated SATCOM Enterprise Vision, JADC2, OneNetwork and Project Convergence demonstrate this commitment, and we are proud to present a packed day of discussion with leaders from the US DOD’s SATCOM community and their counterparts from the defence industry.

SMi’s 23rd Annual Global MilSatCom Conference & Exhibition
Conference: 2-4 November 2021

18 Sep 21. For entry into the 2021 AUSA Annual Meeting & Exposition, scheduled for October 11 – 13 in Washington, AUSA requires proof of vaccination or a negative test result from a COVID-19 test less than 72 hours before attending.
In addition, new federal safety regulations to address Covid-19, announced by President Biden last Thursday, require that all companies with more than 100 employees mandate vaccines or require weekly negative tests. Some 80 m workers will be affected. The Administration will also enforce fines of up to $14,000 per violation for employers that ignore these mandates.
Your company needs an immediate and reliable source for Covid-19 testing.
The Defense Leadership Forum would like to introduce you to SDI Labs of California, the developer of one of the top Covid-19 testing packages. Here is why you should consider SDI Labs’ Covid-19 testing packages:
* SDI has developed a rapid Antigen test kit requiring only one specimen collection to test for both the Antigen and RT-PCR tests.
* The rapid antigen test has an error margin of less than 5%, results within 10 minutes, and oral collection versus deep nasal as a less invasive collection method.
* SDI’s gold-standard RT-PCR tests have a 99.9% accuracy rate.
* The testing can be mobile, deploying testing units throughout your company.
* SDI test costs are extremely competitive.
* SDI can provide the quantity of tests you need, and rapidly.
