Integrating Maritime Security and Surveillance Operations Through Collaboration and Next-Generation Technology

Today’s maritime security needs have become highly sophisticated and multi-dimensional with the exponential rise in maritime terrorism, drug trafficking, piracy and other non-traditional seaborne attacks. Technological advancements and modernization are also shaping governments’ spending in the maritime defence and security sector.

Following 15 years of continuous success, the Maritime Security & Coastal Surveillance series has established itself as the preferred annual gathering point for Navies, Coast Guards, Air Forces, Marine Police, Government Agencies and leading technology players.

  • Global market for new procurement of military platforms will be worth US$838 billion by 2029
