Fast Patrol & Interception 2014 Conference

25 March, 2014 - 27 March, 2014, London, United Kingdom

Leave The Competition In Your Wake

Brown water and littoral operations are a growing concern, with an arguably diminished threat from traditional blue water adversaries. With the world’s eyes on piracy, smuggling, the rise of non-conventional combatants, and the threat of swarm style attacks, the requirement for vessels capable of high speed interdiction in dangerous waters has never been greater.

Operating independently or deployed from a mothership, the fast patrol and interception craft is able to chase down, engage, or impede all manner of threat.

There are however challenges remaining – high speed presents its own concerns, with increased whole body vibration and tougher wave impacts contributing to crew fatigue and limiting their ability to perform tasks. Solutions exist however, as do new tactics and strategies that are revolutionising the littoral zone.

Fast Patrol & Interception 2014 will bring together the experts under one roof for the first time, tacking the major concerns and sharing operational feedback

Key topics that will come under scrutiny are:

  • Whole body vibration – examples of successful mitigation and recent advances
  • Maximising crew endurance, and the trade off between crew comfort and the weight of the vessel
  • One vessel for many purposes, or fresh designs every time? Can you design a vessel capable of performing multiple functions for different end users, or does the platform have to be purpose built?
  • Operational case studies, and active requirements – hear from military and blue light users about their experiences, their concerns, and the solutions they want to see

In attending Fast Patrol & Interception 2014, you will:

  • Engage with operators from military, coast guard, and law enforcement agencies. Find out how their missions differ despite apparently shared requirements
  • Understand how blue water navies are utilising high speed vessels in reaction to the ever growing importance of littoral and brown waters
  • Discover how experimental vessels are pushing the boundaries and advancing high speed craft development, with insight from leading experts and project mangers
  • Find out where the market is going, with detailed examination of the latest technology from hull forms to unmanned vehicles
