Afloat Support and Naval Logistics Conference 2013
Critically assessing the most effective platforms and technologies to sustain current and future global naval operations

19 March, 2013 - 20 March, 2013, London, United Kingdom

Afloat Support & Naval Logistics will:

  • Provide insight and in-depth analysis from high-level speakers from around the world including first time participation from the Philippines assessing the latest development on future requirements
  • A unique look into how Canada is enhancing its Afloat Support Capabilities through the National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy, providing you a comprehensive update on procurement , repair and refit vessels subject to operational requirements for the next 10 – 15 years
  • Explore how emerging nations' recapitalisation programmes are seeking to develop their auxiliary fleets.
  • Investigate future afloat support technologies and systems and whether the commercial sector can take on an increased role in the naval support arena.

Effective afloat support is decisive in maintaining the wide spectrum of current naval operations around the globe, from supporting troops engaged in expeditionary missions to the protection of crucial shipping lanes.

Afloat Support and Naval Logistics 2013 will provide a unique opportunity for the afloat support and naval logistics community to exchange information on the latest platforms and technology being used to tackle an increasingly uncertain and multifaceted operational environment.
