Coastal Surveillance Brazil

21 May, 2013 - 23 May, 2013, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Showcasing Brazilian Industry And Local Expertise In Maritime Security Systems

Coastal Surveillance Brazil is the latest in a series of high-profile maritime conferences brought to you by the organisers of the hugely successful ‘Coastal Surveillance Singapore’, ‘Offshore Patrol Vessels Latin America’ and ‘Caribbean Basin Coastal Surveillance and Maritime Security’ conferences.

The decision to hold the conference in Brazil this year reflects the Brazilian Navy's SisGAAz programme (Sistema de Gerenciamento da Amazônia Azul), which aims to network together existing surveillance assets in order to bring together a common operating picture necessary for effective maritime security.

The project is worth an estimated $4 billion and will provide the Brazilian Navy with an enviable capability, while boosting the domestic defence industry.

Join Coastal Surveillance Brazil to exchange, share and generate knowledge on:

  • Spaced-based solutions to Maritime Domain Awareness with an exceptional presentation on the Canadian Polar Epsilon project
  • Enhancing AIS effectiveness demonstrated through the case study of National Automatic Identification System Network in India
  • C4I excellence to achieve mission success through assured and timely information to support decision making with a brief from the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force
  • Integrating systems across maritime agencies and regional organizations to build a common operating picture and legal framework for maritime security operations
  • Gain strategic notice and build a capability roadmap of the region for your organization in order to remain fully informed of important regional development

Interoperable Open Architecture Focus Day (IOA)

As the Brazilian Navy embarks on modernization and procurement, leading-edge thinkers on defence system specification and procurement will join the Interoperable Open Architecture focus day to:

  • Share best practice in defining and owning system data in order to improve procurement
  • Ensure future systems are inherently interoperable by design


“A well-organised event. Worth attending by relevant officials and business partners.”
