Securing the Future with Emerging Technologies

Online Webinar,

21 April, 03:00 PM - 04:00 PM

Defense Virtual

Join us on 21 April for a discussion on some of the most relevant trends shaping the future of defence

An ever-changing threat environment with asymmetry in tactics, strategy, means and numbers continuously pressures defence agencies worldwide to rethink the way they collect, process, analyse and distribute geospatial data and intelligence. In order to keep a finger on the pulse of the industry, we at Hexagon conducted a survey with a range of defence system integrators.

The survey confirms that advances in technology play a significant role in driving paradigm shifts, both enabling and disrupting the defence industry. With new technologies and tools comes a growing demand for performant platforms that integrate these new capabilities to ultimately gain strategic and tactical advantages. As in other domains, the digital transformation in defence requires a change in the way platforms, processes and procedures are conceptualized and built.

In this webinar, we will present our findings from the survey and explain how Hexagon technology is not only relevant, but can also be a critical component of key emerging defence industry trends. The discussion will include topics such as:

  • The tactical cloud
  • Global interoperability
  • Predictive analysis
  • Autonomy
  • Unmanned vehicles
  • Sensor technology

To learn about the relevance of these technologies, along with how they can be utilized in defence, system integrators, defence practitioners and researchers should join the webinar and the discussion.
