The known failures of intelligence in world hot points and related operations against terrorism and insurgency often result from incapability of piecing together multiple scattered facts and seeing the global picture. This should be done not only at but rather ahead of real time to win and survive. Comprehensive scientific analysis of these processes will be presented and a new intelligent, parallel, and distributed networking technology will be revealed that can effectively solve asymmetric problems in dynamic and hostile environments. The approach is based on holistic and gestalt principles rather than traditional interoperability organizations, allowing us to grasp integral spatial solutions on top semantic level while engaging available human and technical resources not before but rather during evolution of missions and goals. Exemplary ISR-related scenarios expressed in a special high-level language and oriented on both manned and unmanned solutions will be exhibited confirming viability of the approach offered. Other discussed applications will include human-robot interaction, cooperative robotics, electronic and cyber warfare, command intent and advanced command and control, as well as distributed missile defence

Delegates are invited from most diverse fields of management of civil and military systems. The discussed applications will be oriented on but not limited to ISR topics. The listeners will be taught how to grasp complex problems on a high, semantic level and express them in a very simple, compact, but powerful language understandable to both human and robotic components as well as their collectives. The attendees will also receive a brief practical training in reaction on unpredictable and asymmetric situations with finding quick and effective system solutions.

    CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

    ‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

    CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

    Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

    CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.


    There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

    For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

    CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.


    Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

    ‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

    ‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

    The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

    As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SMI Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.


    Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.
