What’s New this Year?
Regional navies and coast guards are split between maintaining and upgrading their existing aging fleets with armament, buying new OPVs and buying new corvettes. Which is the best way forward for each country?
Having identified the common set of challenges for naval platforms and fleet operations in Asia planning to enhance their naval fleets, we have secured both regional and international military officials to share their experiences and expertise in capability development, maritime operations and the practical use of OPVs and corvettes for both Navies and Coast Guards in the region.
Our Key Topics for 2015 include:
- Requirements and Capability Building: How do you define the right requirements for your fleet to meet specific needs? How do you achieve the right balance between cost-constraints and operational efficiency?
- Creating a Versatile Fleet to Maximise Maritime Operations in Asia Pacific: What are the latest technologies and naval assets utilised to carry out maritime operations such as search and rescue, disaster relief, maritime patrols and more? How can OPVs and corvettes be designed and utilised to fulfil a multi-purpose role across various maritime operations?
- Operational Maritime and OPV + Corvette Case Studies: Having new naval assets is not enough, what are some of the operational best practices that Navies and Coast Guards around the region are employing to enhance maritime security and conduct efficient maritime operations?
- The Way Forward: OPVs or Corvettes?: Which asset will be more cost-effective and versatile? What are the considerations between procuring armament for the OPV and corvette? What are the advantages and disadvantages of both? Why are some countries opting for one and not the other?
- Armament: You have procured your OPV or corvette. Or you have an existing fleet of them which requires upgrades and enhancements. What kinds of armament would be most suitable for the constabulary and combat operations you want to put your fleet through?
