Lead partner Cluster Maritimo Naval Cadiz had the opportunity to interview Admiral Teodoro López, Chief of Staff, Spanish Navy and Vice Admiral (Res) Javier Romero, Chairman of the conference. They discuss the versatility that OPVs offer to the maritime community and the need to collaborate with industry in order to design and develop the right capabilities for current and future missions.

In a world where challenges present themselves from small water craft being used as weapons to pirates holding ships for ransom, surveillance of the sea is of the upmost importance. In the maritime security space, data fusion between several kinds of sensors can provide a full picture to identify, eliminate and deter threats. With the help of sensor specialists HENSOLDT, we explore the latest in radar and optronics technology. What’s coming out in the marketplace, what these technologies can provide and how to keep ahead in an era of rapid technological change.
As coastal and maritime surveillance operations are also increasingly expected to shoulder greater responsibilities, operators are increasingly turning towards innovative technological solutions beyond rudimentary deployments of unmanned systems. Emerging technological solutions have not only reduced the strain on manpower resources and operational budgets, but also enhanced the effectiveness of surveillance operations, and by extension, national security.
In this report we explore three emerging technologies; VIDAR, Tethered aerostats and deep learning artificial intelligence. We look at the how, what and why of this emerging tech. These are the technologies piped to fundamentally alter how surveillance missions are done in the future.
