Maritime ISR Global Conference

Domain Awareness & Decision Advantage, from the Seabed to Space 25 September, 2018 - 27 September, 2018, Rome, Italy

Over the past fifteen years the Maritime ISR Global symposium has built a reputation as a key strategic forum for thought leaders in the ISR and maritime communities to address their operational challenges and acquisition interests, from national level maritime policy to naval ISR concept development and programme design. The event brings together 150 representatives from all over the world and seeks to encourage greater cooperation and trust-building between military allies and partners, civil agencies, and industry.

This year's agenda is 'Domain Awareness & Decision Advantage, from the Seabed to Space'. Over three days, senior naval and acquisition leaders will be sharing their perspectives on the trends and threats transforming the maritime environment today and consider how these will ultimately change the nature and employment of allied ISR capabilities tomorrow. By bringing together thought leaders from across NATO and its partner nations, we hope to build a rich and expansive dialogue on the most critical needs of the maritime ISR community: domain awareness, safety, freedom of manoeuvre, and decision-making advantage.
