Defence IQ: How do we exploit an increase in situational awareness to generate a decisive decision advantage for maritime joint forces?
Francesco Catalano: Nowadays we are able to assemble situational pictures which are extremely extended; they rely on multiple platforms that integrate multiple sensors able to work together by sharing information with each other, in order to create a common operational picture that includes objects observed from different perspectives. We are able to do that despite the fact that...

Defence IQ: What specific challenges does the Baltic Sea pose for naval forces generally and their ISR assets in particular?
Captain Palmquist: The Baltic Sea is extremely shallow and confined. 20 years ago, we stated that it was very hard to hide in it because you could be simultaneously detected or engaged by weapon systems from land, air, surface and subsurface. The same thing is true today and will be in the future, but it will be harder to hide in air and on the surface. Moreover, as the number of unmanned systems on the market is increasing, it will be a challenge in coming years to…
Ahead of this year’s Maritime ISR Global Conference, Defence IQ compiled a comprehensive report highlighting active ongoing programmes and key requirements in the Maritime ISR space, as navies invest in solutions and adapt to the multi-domain intelligence approach and retain the information advantage against potential adversaries. It offers insights into the activity of nations that will be present at the Maritime ISR Global conference, such as:

The brand-new OCEAN2020 project is aimed at building up a Recognised Maritime Picture to secure maritime dominance and is led by Leonardo. Its 15 member European countries will focus on integrating data and unmanned systems in existing fleets. Ahead of Maritime ISR Global 2018, Defence IQ had the opportunity to gain an exclusive insider insight from Antonino Arecchi, the OCEAN2020 Programme Project Leader at Leonardo.

The current operating environment for naval forces is complex, cluttered and multi-layered across subsurface, surface, air, space and cyber/EMS. Reaching maritime domain awareness and achieving decision-making superiority is reliant on the timely collection of data and integration of various ISR assets across a protected network, and this is a key driver behind navy doctrine, acquisition and CONOPS. Co-chairman of the upcoming Maritime ISR Global conference and former J2 for the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff (2013-2016), Rear Admiral Paul Becker is perfectly placed to know these challenges well. In this exclusive interactive infographic, discover what operational challenges, limitations and successes he faced related to ISR, from the seabed to space.
