Past event: Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance Technology Conference 2023

We are proud to present the 8th annual Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance Technology conference, taking place on the 1st and 2nd of February 2023.

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 2023 follows seven 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.

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