It is a two-day conference that will explore the strategic integration of networked platforms and military forces to achieve operational superiority, able to face present and future threats.
The changing nature of today's scenarios requires armed forces to be effective in both qualitative and quantitative terms, flexible, mobile, modular and, of course, deployable, in order to be able to respond promptly to a crisis..."
