Monitoring the oceans through space-based surveillance

SMi’s new defence masterclass ‘Protecting the Blue Economy Through Maritime Surveillance Technologies’ will take place in London this December.
Rear Admiral (ret’d) Nick Lambert, Director and Jonathan Turner, Associate from Nick Lambert Associates will be hosting this masterclass. NLA was established to support businesses and organisations seeking to develop and grow within the blue economy. With their combination of knowledge and experience within maritime surveillance technology and the maritime economy they will ensure delegates have an engaging and informative session. 
The aim of this masterclass is to explore how the military and commercial sectors need to increase their collaboration to protect their interests at sea. The following topics that will be covered include:

•    Understanding the Importance of the Blue Economy
•    Transferring Military Situational Awareness Skills to the Commercial Sector
•    What the Commercial Sector can Provide the Military
•    Outsourcing Maritime Security Tasks
•    The Rise of Commercial Space-based Solution Providers
•    Maritime Surveillance C2 and Information Management
•    Looking into the Future of Maritime Surveillance
•    And so much more…

Issues such as the threat of piracy can only be addressed if both sectors are willing to work together. Therefore this masterclass will create a platform for networking for future collaborations.

This masterclass should bring together: Military and civilian personnel, Chief Executive Officers, Chief Operating Officers, Managing Directors, Vice Presidents, Director, Partners, Heads and Managers working in Maritime C4ISTAR, Air Forces, Navies and Coast Guards, Space-based Maritime Surveillance, Maritime Security Contracting and Maritime Shipping.

There is currently an EARLY BIRD offer saving £100 off the current price. To take advantage of this book before the 30th September 2016.
