Operators Conference 2018

During our 3rd Operator Conference, the team from UTC Aerospace Systems welcomed over 150 delegates from our global customer base.  Our two-day event was held in Edinburgh and attended by 11 different nations made up of our existing customers and potential new users of the SCi-Toolset.

We were able to demonstrate a fully networked intelligence enterprise based around SCi-Discover. SCi-Discover is the backbone of our toolset, and facilitates the storage, discovery, visualisation and dissemination of intelligence from any digital source. From strategic partnerships and coalition HQs, down to the disadvantaged user in the field, we demonstrated our capability to the delegates showing them live ingest and distribution of data from remote sites.

In addition to our customers, we were supported by our key partners in moving our business forward.  Our partners from C4i Systems, Secoti and Leonardo were instrumental in displaying how the SCi-Toolset can be used more broadly as well as in the traditional military Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) market.

We also demonstrated the key elements of fielding a multi-mode radar ISR capability to our customers using Leonardo’s OSPREY 30 Radar, and displaying the intelligence in our SCi-Pulse tool. SCi-Pulse was launched this year and supports modern Active Electronically Scanned Arrays (AESA) in overland modes. We will be adding maritime modes next year to our tool which is already in operational use.

As with our previous Operator Conferences in London and Krakow, Poland, we heard briefings from our customers on how they use our ISR systems. As well as sharing ideas on concepts of operations and engineering practices, this allowed us to get feedback directly from them.

A new addition to this year’s event was our Working Groups. These allowed SMEs from each country to gather to discuss more specific topics such as Data-link Operations, Mission Planning and the Processing, Exploitation and Dissemination (PED) of data. The discussions and feedback on Malvern’s PED capabilities were of great value and we will build our customer’s ideas into our technology roadmap.

The conference also provided us an opportunity to launch our new product catalogue which includes all our exploitation, task management and data management products. A copy can be found here.

Our Operator Conference was a unique opportunity to gather our global customer base and not just hear what they are saying to us but to listen to their collective views!
