“Agenda 2030- Hellenic Armed Forces Digital Transformation in the Age of Artificial Intelligence War”

 5th Athens C4ISR International Conference 19-20 November 2024, War Museum, Athens, Greece


DBDC International Defence Publications & Events LTD and the GREEK DEFENCE NEWS magazine are pleased to announce the “Agenda 2030- Hellenic Armed Forces Digital Transformation in the Age of Artificial Intelligence War”, the 5th Athens C4ISR International Conference to be held 19-20 November 2024, Athens, Greece

Greek Defense Minister unveils “Agenda 2030”, an ambitious plan for the Hellenic Armed Forces restructuring focusing on fighter jet acquisition, Navy Fleet enhancement, building robust air defence capability as well as  the domestic defense industry’s role in autonomous systems and missile defense.

The conference will be organized as the premier event supported by the relevant Greek Authorities for knowledge exchange, tapping into the latest technical developments in land, navy air force platforms and weapon systems, C4ISR, Digital Battlefield, Artificial intelligence, and Cyber Security.

Today’s interconnected battlespaces require new technologies. Critical for warfare systems combine a variety of technologies including command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, sensors, Internet of Things (IoT), remote control and autonomous systems that decision-makers rely upon to supply and process accurate analytical data, as well as collect and display information in the most timely, context-appropriate and format-suitable manner, using smart technologies and state-of-the-art sensors.

C4I and cybersecurity are mainly useful for complex and integrated military and security apparatuses that bring together and manage a wide array of integrated ground, maritime, air and cyber forces, in addition to general security, coast guards, civil defence, and crisis management organizations. Furthermore, these systems enable senior commanders to plan, manage, and follow through operations at the toughest of times and under the harshest of circumstances such as wars, disasters and emergencies. Platforms designed with modern C4ISR capabilities provide an advantage through situational awareness, knowledge of the adversary and environment, and shortening the time between sensing and response to control the battle space.

International Defence Industry today offers a wide range of Land-Navy-Air platforms equipped with latest technology Command, Control, Communications, Computer, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance systems; from a simple refresh to the integration of cutting-edge new technology enabling faster, real-time transfer of data, information, intelligence and communications across platforms and services. It is part of a more holistic joint approach for a new way of war under the umbrella of Joint All-Domain Operations.

The conference will bring together international  manufacturers of modern weapon systems platforms incorporating C4I solutions and systems’ developers and providers along with the Hellenic Defence Industry executives as well as representatives from the Hellenic Ministry of National Defence and the Joint, Army, Navy, Air Force General Staffs, Foreign Military Delegations and Defence Attaché focuses on new strategies and capabilities in mobility, command and control, communications, cyber, unmanned systems and sensors, networks and geospatial intelligence of Joint All-Domain Operations and how this networked system must be protected from digital threats.
