SMi Reports: Senior representatives to brief on achieving comprehensive Maritime Domain Awareness at Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance Technology 2020 in Rome, Italy

In recent news from BBC, the Italian Coastguards and authorities found bodies of migrants who drowned at sea, after a boat capsized in rough seas off the island of Lampedusa.

With that in mind, thousands of migrants still attempt to cross the Mediterranean to Europe every year and in poor and adverse weather conditions, the death count continues to rise. EU member states are working on a temporary plan to quickly take people off boats in the Mediterranean and provisionally relocate them among countries willing to accommodate them.

SMi Group’s Maritime Reconnaissance and Surveillance Technology conference will return for its 5th year, commencing on 5th – 6th February 2020 in Rome, Italy. As the only Maritime ISR meeting in Italy, it is a good opportunity to discuss and learn new capabilities from other European members on how to achieve comprehensive maritime domain awareness (MDA) for situations such as those that happened in Italy.

An early bird saving of £200 for bookings made by 29th November is available on the website. Register at www.maritime-recon.com/openPR3

This year’s conference will explore how to achieve comprehensive MDA through: Space-based Technology, Unmanned Maritime Systems, Airborne Platforms & Operations, C4ISTAR, Hydrographic platforms and many more.

1. Rear Admiral Luigi Sinapi, Director of the Italian Hydrographic Institute, Italian Navy
2. Commodore Thomas Guy, Deputy Director, Combined Joint Operations from the Sea Centre of Excellence, Royal Navy
