MILCOM 2015 celebrates the 34th anniversary of the premier international conference for military communications. “Leveraging Technology – The Joint Imperative” gathers the leading minds of government, military, industry and academia in an interactive forum to further explore and define the benefits that joint-level collaboration bring to current and future communication challenges. The annual conference will take place October 26-28, 2015, at the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, Florida. Leaders from around the world will address the critical role communications plays in military readiness and operations. The Tampa location is ideal for this discussion, with close proximity to the MacDill Air Force Base military community, U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM), U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) and the 6th Air Mobility Wing. MILCOM offers industry the opportunity to discuss communications technologies and services with decision makers from all branches of the armed forces, the Department of Defense, federal agencies and multinational forces.
In the MILCOM tradition, the conference will feature an outstanding series of technical presentations, discussions and tutorials, as well as nearly 30,000 square feet of industry exhibits all under one roof. It will include more than 300 unclassified and restricted technical presentations, tutorials and panel discussions led by experts in defense communications. Topics will include the spectrum of command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) technologies and capabilities that address 21st century communications challenges related to national defense, homeland security, disaster response and interoperability. Continuing education credits will be available to all attendees.
Join Isola in booth 932 at MILCOM 2015.

If you’re in the United States like I am, and if you celebrated with a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, like my family did, then you just might have fallen asleep sitting up in a chair (or in my case, stretched out on the couch) and missed some of the highlights in the news this week. Never fear, I woke up early to bring the top five news items you should know for this week. We have industry bookings and sales news from IPC, some news from the flex sector, an explanation of induction lamination from Happy Holden, and two different takes on “sustainability.”
In the United States, the Thanksgiving holiday is a celebration of gratitude and appreciation for the harvest and for the people close to us. Thankfulness, however, transcends just one day of official observance. The fourth Thursday of November is when the U.S. officially celebrates Thanksgiving Day and as we take time to observe this holiday, the I-Connect007 team wishes to offer our thanks to you, our global readers and contributors: designers, fabricators, engineers, assemblers, quality and process control gurus, chemists, physicists, supervisors, managers, entrepreneurs, business owners, standards writers, industry experts, and more. You breathe life into the vital, thriving, world-changing electronics industry. You are the real story.
