Why You Should Attend This Symposium:
The current strategy calls for the DoD is to continue to ramp up investments in electronic warfare. Administration requests for research funding for unclassified electronic warfare capabilities have increased from $4.9 billion in fiscal 2019 to $5.5 billion for 2021. There will be a continued focus on using information warfare methods to disrupt & stop the spread of disinformation by the adversary, whether it be in the battlespace or to combat attempted interference in U.S. Elections. The Information Warfare Symposium will focus on initiatives from each of the services as to how they are utilizing electronic warfare capabilities & information warfare to enable a strategic decision advantage for the Warfighter & Combatant Commanders at the operational and tactical levels.
Senior Leaders at this forum will detail how EW & Cyber operations can enable the Warfighter to be successful in contested information environments, and alert them to where adversaries are operating. They will also explain their efforts to ensure persistent engagement & more effectively execute electronic warfare & information operations into all-domain operations. This event will offer insight into & give industry the opportunity to learn where they can assist the DoD on developing new technologies to increase agility & lethality of the Force. Attendees will hear of the push amongst the Services for collaborative efforts to ensure there is effective training & equipping of cyber/information operators to decisively deter, compete, & win in the information environment. Additionally, a panel discussion at this Symposium will examine innovative ideas & technologies, such as AI, that are being implemented by the DoD JAIC & others to support the future of information warfare.
DSI’s team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Symposiums’ content and focus areas. We assemble the most respected minds in the manufacturing and acquisition communities, as well as the key policymakers across military and civilian offices. Our non-partisan approach allows us to reach across all services and organizations to bring together a truly holistic group of decision-makers and solution providers.

Operating Guidance for Government Attendees:
– DSI’s Symposium directly supports DoD priorities by providing a conduit for officials to efficiently reach audiences outside of their respective offices that directly impact their department’s mission success, at no charge to the government, and in an efficient expenditure of time.
– The symposium will provide a forum to address and improve internal and external initiatives, meet with and hear from partner organizations, disseminate vital capability requirements to industry, increase visibility within the larger community, and generally support their mission.
– The symposium is open and complimentary to all DoD, IC and Federal employees and is considered an educational and training forum.
