Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance Technology Conference


Rome, Italy

We are proud to announce the 4th annual Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance Technology conference will be held in Rome from the 6th - 7th February 2019 in Rome.

Reconnaissance and Surveillance
are key  to developing clear and accurate maritime situational awareness. In order to maximise their ISR range, Navies and Maritime agencies around the globe are looking beyond the atmosphere to provide new and advanced surveillance capabilities. Space-based surveillance systems are providing users with up-to-date information from both a signal tracking and data imagery point of view, allowing for the monitoring of shipping routes, fishing grounds, environmental issues and illegal activities. However, not all nations can afford to launch and run dedicated surveillance satellite systems and focus on conventional platforms to fulfil their maritime ISR requirements. Therefore, an international approach is needed to allow Maritime authorities and Navies to monitor the world's oceans and share relevant up-to-date information correctly.

Benefits of Attending

  • Attend keynote briefings from senior officers from the key national naval agencies and benefit from a unique focus on space-based surveillance, C4ISR platforms, aerial and maritime airborne technologies and intelligence gathering and sharing
  • Benefit from briefings on national updates and new platform acquisitions and manufacturing, space-based technologies supporting MDA, unmanned maritime system technology, unmanned aerial technologies, Mediterranean ISR capabilities to name a few!
  • Informal networking time factored in so you can gather insight from peers and colleagues also shaping and influencing intelligence gathering and reconnaissance programmes today
  • Focused discussion groups tackling key challenges facing maritime surveillance managers across the transatlantic area
  • Do not miss the briefings from Israel, the US, the UK, Germany, Italy, and many  others!
