Patrol Vessel Modularity And The Evolution Of The Platform

Patrol Vessel Modularity And The Evolution Of The Platform

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

This speaker report is divided into two parts:

  • PART ONE - Adapting to the evolving scenarios and the need to design OPVs for the whole life cycle with Admiral Teodoro López
  • PART TWO - Industry 4.0 and implementing new technologies into OPV design and development with Vice Admiral (Res) Javier Romero

Key benefits of downloading this speaker report:

  • Gain insight into the current use of OPVs by the Spanish Navy
  • Understand how OPV design and development will be enhanced through collaboration between the naval community and industry
  • Learn how Spain is preparing for the fast-changing operating environment and threats


The Latest in Radar and Optronics Technology

The Latest in Radar and Optronics Technology

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. 

Philippine Navy Modernisation

Philippine Navy Modernisation

Throughout Southeast Asia, there is arguably no other seagoing force that is modernising at the rate of the Philippine Navy (PN). In the past five years, the service has undergone an unprecedented transformation, including the induction of its largest ever warships – and bigger plans are already afoot. The Philippine government has placed orders with South Korea for what will be the most sophisticated vessels yet to enter service. This report looks at the current programmes transforming the PN and the market opportunities likely to emerge.

The Landscape of Asia-Pacific Defence in 2017

The Landscape of Asia-Pacific Defence in 2017

Maritime security, missile defence, UAVs - the military balance in Asia is in flux as developing nations strengthen their coastal surveillance capabilities. In this feature article we analyse the latest strategic developments and ask five security experts, what will the security situation in Southeast Asia look like in 2017?
Global Maritime Reconnaissance & Surveillance Developments

Global Maritime Reconnaissance & Surveillance Developments

Today, almost no region worldwide is unaffected by a serious security threat at sea. Fishery protection remains a serious concern for most coastlines. Piracy is resurgent in African waters. Territorial disputes in South-East Asia continue to bubble to the surface, while the Arctic Circle is slowly becoming a more prominent geopolitical concern. Latin American and Caribbean nations see no immediate end to narcotics smuggling. And of course, Europe is witness to a serious cross-sea migrant crisis. In this e-book, we explore each of these regions in more depth.
Evolution of Maritime Security in Southeast Asia

Evolution of Maritime Security in Southeast Asia

The Southeast Asian region has in recent years been plagued with multiple reports of piracy, kidnap for ransom, and theft-at sea cases. How have these threats evolved lately, and what are countries in the region doing to counter the perennial problem? What are defence procurement opportunities that have emerged as a result of these efforts?
Regional Naval Modernisation

Regional Naval Modernisation

Multi-concerns on sea control / post-modern and sea denial. Relatively low concern on ASW. Capacity limitation for escalating conflicts. Critical financial capacity to manage and maintain fleets. Test on the ceiling of maritime interests.
Countering Drones

Countering Drones

Estimated at around $127 billion, the 'drone revolution' is booming. But amongst the optimism is a creeping concern about the security and safety threat that this technology presents to critical national infrastructure, homeland security and a range of commercial sectors.
Beyond Drones

Beyond Drones

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.
