Search and Rescue 2018 Conference

26 June, 2018 - 28 June, 2018, London, United Kingdom


Accelerating the delivery of maritime search and rescue depends on collaboration. As international SAR organisations find their assets stretched thin by mass-rescue operations in the Mediterranean and remote missions in the Arctic, they depend on the resources of their partners to mazimise situational awareness, enhance training and increase the rate of response.

Search and Rescue 2018 will work towards a coordinated approach to rescue in the maritime domain. As satellite technology, unmannned systems and other advanced sensors clarify the operational picture, practitioners have new opportunities to exploit data more effectively, eliminating gaps in coverage and optimising the ways in which they deploy limited rotary and fixed-wing aircraft. Underpinning this theme, topics of discussion at the conference will include command and control, mission planning and management, unmanned platform integration, data dissemination and crew training.

Join SAR strategists and operators in London this June, and don't miss your annual opportunity to make sure maritime SAR is rapid, cost-effective and collaborative.

Why you should attend Search and Rescue 2018:

  • Enhance your coverage of your area of operations by taking advantage of space-based technologies, unmanned platforms and information-sharing systems
  • Augment your approach to mission planning and mission management in a collaborative operational environment
  • Train your SAR operators to respond to a diverse range of scenarios and environments by leveraging simulated and live training solutions
  • Optimise your rotary and fixed wing platforms to support littoral and long-distance operations in challenging conditions
