Mine Countermeasures 2014 Conference

17 November, 2014 - 19 November, 2014, London, United Kingdom

Utilising the latest unmanned solutions to remove the man from the minefield

Mine Countermeasures 2014 will deliver a detailed assessment of the process for locating, identifying and neutralising naval mines. All nations are looking to reduce the time taken to mine sweep an area, improve the safety and speed of mine disposal and remove their men from the minefield; all find themselves asking, how can we best overcome these challenges?

Building on from the success of our 2013 conference, Mine Countermeasures 2014 will analyse developments in both manned and unmanned MCM vessels to determine the current state of affairs and best practice for future MCM missions.

It will consider the increasing role of UUVs and USVs both now and into the future and cover key new technologies in manned vessels, considering the approaches taken nations with regards to current MCM legacy systems.

With this in mind, the aim of event is to answer the key question all MCM users are currently asking; are unmanned vessels the future? Or, should manned and legacy systems remain the priority for navies moving forward?

Providing expert insight from militaries across the world, Mine Countermeasures 2014 will allow you to

  • Maximise your understanding of the current requirements and procurements of key nations; their plans, processes and next steps for the future
  • Discover how the latest systems and sensors for UUVs and USVs, and technological developments in MCMVs, are influencing the future capability plans of nations, allowing you to learn from their experiences. Improve your MCM capabilities at reduced risk and cost
  • Engage in face to face communication with key policy and procurement decision makers to discuss, and discover, how navies are removing the man from the battlefield and developing MCM campaigns
  • Debate the future of MCM missions; are unmanned vessels the future or should manned and current legacy systems remain the priority? Determine how you should plan for the future
  • Gain unprecedented international engagement with the MCM community from military to military, and military to industry, debates
