Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance 2014 Conference

29 September, 2014 - 1 October, 2014, Rome, Italy

The search for Malaysia Airline MH370 highlighted the difficulty in delivering effective wide area maritime surveillance. How then can nations enhance their maritime domain awareness?

Welcome to Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance 2014 – Europe’s leading forum for maritime and reconnaissance professionals.

As more and more scrutiny is placed on military and civil maritime reconnaissance and surveillance capabilities, nations are asking how they can deliver enhanced maritime domain awareness and just what the best platforms are for the job and if they affordable. Will the traditional Maritime Patrol Aircraft remain the norm as the P8 comes of age or will business jet conversions continue to increase in popularity? Undoubtedly, satellites can play a significant role, but are they effective at an affordable cost?

These questions and more will be answered at Maritime reconnaissance and Surveillance 2014.

So What’s New for 2014?

Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance 2013 attracted over 120 senior military and industry representatives to engage in a two-way discussion about the future maritime reconnaissance. Naturally Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance 2014 will continue to provide you with a truly international viewpoint on current and future requirements but this year will also see an increased focus on satellite capabilities and governmental maritime reconnaissance missions.

You can also expect to meet a wider range of non-European participants than ever before including nations whose maritime security is vital for international trade such as Singapore, Indonesia and the Philippines

Keep checking back for more updates as the 2014 agenda continues to take shape.
