Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance Technology 2024 Conference

January 29-31, 2024- London, United Kingdom

We are proud to present the 9th annual Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance Technology conference, taking place on the 29 - 31 January 2024 in London

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 followed 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 included: Maritime Patrol Aircraft Development, RPAS for Maritime Surveillance, Space-Based ISR, C4ISR, Search & Rescue, Autonomy, Coastal & Littoral Surveillance, Enhancing Overall Maritime Security and More...
