31st annual MILCOM conference, expo returns to Orlando

The thirty-first annual MILCOM Conference and Exposition, “Trusted Communications … Awareness to Action,” will be held at the Gaylord Palms Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., Oct. 29 through Nov. 1.

Co-sponsored by AFCEA International and the IEEE Communications Society, and hosted by Harris Corporation, MILCOM is the premier international conference for military communications. It gathers the leading minds of government, military, industry and academia in an interactive forum to further explore, define and leverage the benefits networks bring to today’s and tomorrow’s challenges.

MILCOM 2012 gives industry the opportunity to promote communications technologies and services to commanders from all branches of the armed forces, Department of Defense, federal government, and the heads of multi-national forces from around the globe.

MILCOM includes unclassified and classified sessions, technical panels, plenary panels and tutorials. Topics include waveforms and signals processing, network protocols and performance, cyber security and trusted computing, system perspectives, services and applications, and other communications-related topics. Attendees may also qualify for continuing education units (CEUs) for attending tutorials and panel discussions. CEUs are available from Florida Institute of Technology and CompTIA.

In addition to the technical discussions, five featured speakers will present their unique perspectives on the issues surrounding trusted communications:

  • Lt. Gen. Susan S. Lawrence, U.S. Army, Chief Information Officer/G-6, U.S. Army
  • Chris Inglis, Deputy Director, National Security Agency
  • Retired Army Gen. Peter Chiarelli, former Vice Chief of Staff, U.S. Army
  • Retired Navy Capt. Mark Kelly, commander of Space Shuttle Endeavour’s final mission
  • Jeb Bush , former Florida governor

Complementing the technical program this year is a Small Business Workshop that offers an opportunity to participate in real-time interaction with Harris Corporation and other prime contractors. In addition, conference attendees will have 250 exhibitor booths to visit throughout the three-day conference, as many of the world’s leading providers of information, communications and defense technologies will be on hand.

All proceeds from the MILCOM 2012 conference will benefit AFCEA and IEEE educational programs, as well as “The Mission Continues,” a nonprofit organization that reaches out to post-9/11 veterans, empowering them to transform their lives by serving others and directly impacting their communities.

A schedule of events, list of exhibitors and online registration form is available at www.milcom.org. There is a registration fee to attend the conference and exposition.

AFCEA International, established in 1946, is a non-profit membership association serving the military, government, industry, and academia as an ethical forum for advancing professional knowledge and relationships in the fields of communications, IT, intelligence and global security.
