Maritime Security and Coastal Surveillance Asia 2018

APAC's Largest Maritime Security Conference

Singapore, Singapore

Leveraging Inter-Agency Cooperation and Smart Technology to Achieve Maritime Domain Awareness

While maritime security and coastal surveillance priorities may differ between the nations, regional priorities remain largely the same for Southeast Asia. Growing tensions in the South China Sea and a rise in non-traditional maritime security threats - non-state insurgencies, maritime terrorism, transnational crimes, illegal fishing, smuggling, humanitarian and disaster relief, crisis management and first response operations continue to be key challenges faced by the region.

The 15th Maritime Security and Coastal Surveillance conference will bring senior commanders and officers from Navies, Coast Guards, Air Forces, Marine Police, Government Agencies and technology players together to discuss how the APAC region can address these ever-evolving maritime security threats through increased cooperation and smart technology.

Hear regional and international case studies on how to foster closer regional cooperation, harness smart and advanced technology (i.e. Artificial intelligence in Defence) and build next generation maritime security capabilities to combat existing and new maritime security threats.

Key Topics for 2018 Include:

  • Reviewing Market Intelligence Report on Global Procurement Trends and Challenges
  • Integrating Sea, Air And Land Assets and Systems To Build A Coherent Maritime Border Security Management Strategy
  • Exploring Key Tactical and Operational Strategies to Lead a Successful Intra-Agency Missions
  • Embracing AI Embedded Naval Systems for Maritime Defence
  • Analysing the Future of Naval and Aerial Surveillance for Maritime Operations
  • Utilising Smart Technology to Combat Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) Fishing
