Founded in 1982, MILCOM has been the preeminent forum bringing together thought leaders in government, industry, and academia to discuss innovative research and cutting-edge technology development. Celebrating the 40th year anniversary of the MILCOM conference, MILCOM 2022 is themed around “Transforming Decision Making through Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2)”, building technology pillars in secure communications, resilient networks, multi-domain operations, cyber security, and machine learning.


MILCOM 2022 will feature a comprehensive high-quality technical program including five technical tracks, workshops, a variety of technical panels and tutorials, for both unclassified technical program and restricted access technical program. The conference will also feature keynotes and plenary panels with prominent speakers from government, industry and research organizations, as well as vendor exhibition, women’s forum, industry lightning talks, and student poster sessions.

MILCOM 2022 technical program consists of rigorously peer-reviewed technical papers, selected tutorials, workshops, and technical panels on current and emerging topics applicable to all facets of military communications. We encourage professionals in industry, academia, and government worldwide to attend the in-person conference and have a rewarding and fruitful full conference experience.
