Blue Economy Through Maritime Surveillance Technology - 24/10/2016

The increasing use of space-based surveillance explored this December

SMi’s Protecting the Blue Economy Through Maritime Surveillance Technology will take place on 6th December in London.

The masterclass will be hosted by Rear Admiral (ret’d) Nick Lambert, Director and Jonathan Turner, Associate from Nick Lambert Associates Ltd. NLA was established to support businesses and organisations seeking to develop and grow within the blue economy.

The agenda will focus on how military and commercial sectors need to increase collaboration levels to protect their interests at sea.

The programme will play particularly attention to the topic of space-based surveillance as this is a new technology that has been emerging into the market and is a great asset when it comes to security and protection.

‘The Rise of Commercial Space-based Solution Providers’ will be discussed throughout the day and the hosts will talk about: space-based surveillance as a vital aspect of maritime security, how space assets are being increasingly commercialised as well as how protecting the commons is an international effort not just national.

Furthermore the agenda will look into the future of Maritime Surveillance and how there is an increasing reliance on space-based platforms and how navies can respond to future threats through advanced technologies.

There is currently an EARLY BIRD offer saving £50 off the current price. To take advantage of this book before the 31st October 2016.
