Hear Updates on How to Maximise Maritime Situational Awareness Capabilities

With less than 4 weeks to go, SMi’s 2nd annual Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance Technology conference will return to Rome on the 29th & 30th January 2017.

Rome, Italy, January 07, 2017 --(PR.com)-- "The world’s oceans are not controlled by one nation but by all; the only way they will remain safe is through collaboration at all levels. Sharing information based on data collected from a wide range of ISR platforms is one way we can work together to face maritime threats..." -Rear Admiral (Ret’d) Anthony Rix, Event Chairman, Former Flag Officer Sea Training, Royal Navy.

The need to discuss maritime surveillance activities and collaboration between nations is crucial, thus this event will respond to topical issues by bringing together senior military personnel and leading industry experts to discuss strategies and techniques that are being used to increase the safety of international waters.

With less than 4 weeks remaining, new sponsors Sitep Italia and e-GEOS join the event alongside new speakers Captain Dermot Mulholland, Branch Head, Strategic Plans & Policy from Combined Joint Operations from the Sea Centre of Excellence and Rear Admiral Giorgio Lazio, Commander Maritime North from Italian Navy.

Captain Mulholland will be speaking on day two on "16 Findings and Recommendations from the maritime security round table 2016" and Rear Admiral Lazio will be speaking on day one about ‘The Italian Navy Northern Maritime Hub Experience: A hybrid Model for Public-Private Initiatives’.

The 2017 agenda will cover a vast array of topics including: research and development projects, acquisition programs, interoperability amongst maritime nations, mitigating the Mediterranean immigration crisis, space-based surveillance, C4I capabilities, real-time vessel tracking, modern ISR capabilities and so much more.

With representatives in attendance from Australia, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Israel, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Turkey, United Kingdom and USA; this truly global event will provide the perfect platform to network with leading maritime surveillance experts to discuss the latest updates and programmes within the industry.
