 The DSEI 2021 Joint Forum features discussions on Tuesday 14 to Thursday 16 September. 


Overview:

The Joint Forum is developed in close partnership with UK Strategic Command and other senior stakeholders from across the Ministry of Defence. It will be continually updated through regular working group meetings up until the event in September, to maintain accuracy and provide timely, actionable information for industry and international partners.

Led by Strategic Command’s Head of Strategy, the Joint Forum will provide valuable insights to industry and international partners, on how the MoD is delivering the integration of the UK’s armed forces, as part of the new Multi-Domain Integration (MDI) doctrine which lies at the heart of the UK’s future defence capabilities. MDI is designed to ensure UK defence remains competitive in the rapidly evolving world of modern warfare, by enabling all domains to work seamlessly together and effectively leverage the specialised capabilities of each service for the benefit of the others, and for joint force objectives as a whole.

Strategic Command will share how they are working to augment and enhance MDI by harnessing emerging technologies such as AI, machine learning, and cloud processing to exploit the power of the data collected and effectively utilise this to deliver the information advantage that will be critical to future warfare.

Whilst working across all of defence, Strategic Command has an emphasised focus on Cyber and Space, which work together to enable this integration. The Joint Forum will highlight the significant work that Strategic Command conducts in the background to support the integration of policy, strategy, equipment, and personnel in these key areas, as well as the considerable opportunities on offer for solution providers to support this once-in-a-generation transition.
