nullThe Next Battlespace - A Strategy for The Electromagnetic Spectrum.

The 2014 Bridge Lecture, held with City University London in their Oliver Thompson Lecture Theatre, is to be given by Paul J. De Lia, Corporate Vice President - Science & Technology, L-3 Communications. Paul is L-3's top technology executive, playing an integral role in the company's technical vision, strategic direction, development and future growth. Prior to joining L-3, he held senior appointments with Sirius Satellite Radio and Lockheed Martin (formerly Loral Electronic Systems).

The electromagnetic spectrum, like oil or natural gas, is a precious natural resource. The ever increasing reliance on scarce electromagnetic spectrum by both private and public sector has prompted commercial and military planners to rethink their spectrum strategies. Traditional spectrum management techniques have produced electronic Maginot Lines by employing static polices and architectures leaving wirelessly enabled systems vulnerable to everything from degraded performance to electronic and cyber-attack. This presentation will discuss: spectrum as a resource; the opportunities and threats associated with spectrum; the use of cognition to manage spectrum; opportunities for business development; and, recommendations for a path forward.

The event is open to the public. It will begin with arrival refreshments at 6.00pm with the lecture starting promptly at 6.30pm; there will be a light 'bowl food' supper served afterwards with a glass of wine. Lounge suits would be appropriate with Company badges where applicable.

There is no charge to attend this event.
