About this Event

The DCP workshop in August 2019 was the first opportunity for industry to hear about the capabilities being considered in this domain, and Defence has been planning for some time to create an opportunity to engage with industry. The Information Domain will herald a change to the NZDF Operating Model. This Event is a “Must Attend” for all current and prospective suppliers to both MOD and NZDF.
Industry has a first and historical opportunity to contribute to the establishment of this new and increasingly important domain, and Government has signalled strongly that it is looking to us (industry) to come up with solutions around information driven personnel, IT, AI, big data, data analytics, infrastructure, training and other capabilities across intelligence, cyber and electronic warfare, information activities and C4. While maintaining NZDIA’s core focus on Defence stakeholders, IDEAS 2020 will bring together industry (local, regional and international) and also a range of Government agencies, to explore the development of further long term collaboration, in relation to the information domain.

Part One: Tuesday 1 & Wednesday 2 September 2020: With a focus on information delivery from Defence to Industry (key info sessions in the afternoon of 1 September)
