Maximising Maritime Situational Awareness Capabilities for the Safety and Protection of International Waters

Gold Sponsor: PAE
Sponsored by: exactEarth, Horizon Technologies, Pole Star Global, Sentient Vision Systems, Kongsberg Satellite Services, Orbcomm, DeepOcean Engineering and MDA Systems.

After last year’s huge success the SMi Group is proud to announce the 2nd Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance Technology. The event will be held in Rome on the 30th and 31st of January 2017.
Based on the success of the 2016 conference, we aim to replicate and improve by providing a more regional focus, not just on the Mediterranean, but other areas of interest including the Black Sea and further beyond in the Asia Pacific region. All of which have keen collective interest on ensuring the safety and security of legitimate maritime activities.
This high level meeting will bring together senior military leadership, project decision makers, technical experts and cutting edge industry solution providers to explore future endeavours that will enhance the security and stability of the world’s oceans.

The 2017 programme will:

• Provide a wider regional focus outside of the Mediterranean where challenges are also persistent
• Feature high ranking military personnel involved with the enhancement of maritime surveillance platforms and systems
• Present a running theme on the importance of information sharing as operations are increasingly conducted at an international level
• Include Informal networking time to talk to peers and colleagues also shaping and influencing Maritime ISR programs today
• Allow learning on how other nations are developing their maritime surveillance and reconnaissance provision from past experience and cutting edge research and development
• Get to the heart of challenges faced by modern maritime forces such as capability gaps and what requirements they now have
