Welcome to Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance 2014 - Europe's leading forum for maritime ISR professionals
As more and more scrutiny is placed on military and civil maritime reconnaissance and surveillance capabilities, nations are asking how they can deliver enhanced maritime domain awareness, what the best platforms are for the job, and if they affordable. Will the traditional Maritime Patrol Aircraft remain the norm as the P8 comes of age or will business jet conversions continue to increase in popularity? Undoubtedly, satellites can play a significant role, but are they effective at an affordable cost?
These questions and more will be answered at Maritime reconnaissance and Surveillance 2014.
So What’s New for 2014?
Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance 2013 attracted over 120 senior military and industry representatives to engage in a two-way discussion about the future maritime reconnaissance. Continuing to provide you with a truly international viewpoint on current and future requirements, this year's symposium has already seen registration from over 20 nations, including Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Sierra Leone, Australia and Colombia.
We are also delighted to welcome the United Kingdom back to our speaker panel, with Brigadier David Evans speaking about the Royal Navy's first operations with ScanEagle, along with the potential of biometrics in the maritime environment and how the UK is looking to plug its current MPA gap.
Keep checking back for more updates as the 2014 agenda continues to take shape.
