Industry has an important role to play in solving the transformation challenges of the contemporary warfighting force. As a provider of enabling technologies to the US DoD and coalition partners such as Growler’s TTNT, JSAS, and Wideband HF, Rockwell Collins has been trusted to solve our customers’ most difficult connectivity challenges in the modern, contested battlespace within which they must fight and win. This afternoon, a leader in the global aerospace and defence industry will be offering his privileged insight into how industry can meet both the challenges and opportunities prompted by the ADF’s integration program called out under plans Jericho, Beersheba and Pelorus, and what this means to the future of the relationship between industry and Defence.
