We are proud to present the 6th annual Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance Technology VIRTUAL CONFERENCE.

With rapid technological advances changing the way maritime forces need to utilise and manage ISR capabilities across domains, Maritime and Littoral Reconnaissance and Surveillance systems and platforms have become a critical component of naval capability.

As the only Maritime ISR event with a specific focus on Space-Based Domain Awareness, Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance Technology 2021 follows five very successful predecessors. With the previous events taking place in Rome, the event has brought forward a discussion on the growing need for more comprehensive and sophisticated Joint Maritime ISR capabilities in the Mediterranean and beyond, particularly following the Migrant Crisis that still remains.

This year, with the geographical shift comes a subtle strategic one, providing a renewed focus on some of the strategic threats and technological challenges facing naval and joint forces from across the world. The conference retains an increased focus on space based maritime reconnaissance and the relation between the Littoral and Maritime Domains and ISR capabilities that occur here. The aim is to assist the advancement and engagement of Naval practitioners and Programme Managers through briefings, panel sessions and focused discussion groups on topics including Unmanned ISR platforms, Space-based Maritime Reconnaissance, Fleet Air Arm ISR capabilities, Sensors at Sea and more.

Platforms and topics discussed include: Space based ISR, Airborne Platforms & Operations, C4ISTAR, Unmanned Maritime Systems, Hydrographic platforms and many more..
