Joint Personnel Recovery 2013 Conference
Assessing the future requirements for a whole government approach to personnel recovery

20 May, 2013 - 22 May, 2013, London, United Kingdom

We are delighted to announce that the world’s leading joint personnel recovery event will be returning in 2013 following its tremendous success in 2012

Personnel recovery has never been more of a burning issue with recent experiences in Afghanistan and the Horn of Africa demonstrating the importance of:

  • Effectively planning for personnel recovery incidents
  • Educating those in danger of becoming isolated
  • Developing the capability to rescue isolated persons, military and non-military alike, from contested areas

With these areas in mind Joint Personnel Recovery 2013 will showcase the whole of government approach to PR with new and added perspectives on:

  • How both dedicated CSAR units and special operations forces will conduct personnel recovery operations in hostile environments ‘post Afghanistan’
  • How are government personnel recovery managers planning for contingency operations in countries where the use of force is not an option
  • How do NGOs mitigate the risks of an isolating incidents staking place and how does their crisis management response differ from governments’
  • What are the materiel solutions in the market that can assist isolated persons and what are governments’ and militaries’ latest requirements’
  • How would PR forces counter A2/AD strategies to effect successful missions in areas such as the Gulf and Asia Pacific
