Modern coast guards are faced with increasingly varied and complex challenges covering a wide range of missions which demand specialist equipment and highly trained personnel. Often this requires working under extreme stress, strict time conditions using multi-function capabilities and platforms as effectively as possible.

Focusing on Interoperability, Search and Rescue, Border Security and Resource Protection this conference aims to improve inter-agency and international cooperation as well as provide an opportunity to meet with industry leaders providing the next generation of specialist equipment. Coast Guard Capability 2019 will feature whole day sessions that cater to both SAR and Law Enforcement specialists and includes an interactive workshop focusing on major incident response using the case study of a mass SAR operation or environmental disaster.

Join this forum to meet with international colleagues, discuss current challenges and develop well-defined future propriety areas, as well as share case-studies and take part in the critical discussion for maritime organisations.
