Next Decade of Military Communications

The theme for the MILCOM 2010 conference is "Next Decade of Military Communications." MILCOM is the premier international conference for military communications and attracts a very impressive array of participants with high-level attendance from government, military, industry and academia. MILCOM 2010 gives industry the opportunity to promote communications to all branches of the armed forces, Department of Defense, federal government, and the heads of multi-national forces from around the globe.

In 2010, MILCOM will take place at the
San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, California. It’s been said that San Jose feels like a "campus."  This sensation may be influenced by the proximity of the hotels, restaurants, and attractions including museums and performing arts venues.  All are within walking area, and our conference hotel, the Fairmont, is practically next door.

The conference is being hosted by
Lockheed Martin Corporation and
The Aerospace Corporation.
